MULTICULTURAL MADNESS -- How Western Civilization has been turned upside down in one generation

[. . . . ] "MULTICULTURAL MADNESS" documents how multiculturalism, which started on college campuses during the "cultural revolution" of the '60s, has succeeded in making America so confused, "politically correct" and "minority-sensitive" that it has all but forgotten its original, core, Judeo-Christian values. Because of rampant multiculturalism:

* American heroes from Christopher Columbus to the Pilgrims are now likened to genocidal racists and maniacal bigots. [In Canada, we could substitute white explorers, legislators attempting in Canada to give native children the skills to join in the economy -- Now, we have 11,000 lawsuits still unsettled covering not just sexual abuse, but loss of language and culture. ]

[. . . . ] * "Whiteness studies" – the latest incarnation of multiculturalism on America's college campuses – teaches that "whiteness" is the underlying cause of practically every conceivable social ill and that white people are almost inherently evil. [Think of the advertisement excluding white males -- CSC -- Search: "No whites need apply". ]

* Devil-worship and witchcraft are now afforded the same respect as worship of God. [Think the UN, Maurice Strong and earth worship/environmentalism, if my memory serves. ] [. . . . ]

How "Li Qing Mai, and her husband, Zhi Wen Tang, of Mission, B.C." got away with running a grow op -- a lesson for all

Is anyone else out there considering planting a little pin money crop?

Seriously, this ruling gives enough time to the criminal element to flush the cocaine or methamphetamines away, provided there aren't too many. Like location, timing is everything.

B.C. Supreme Court says police gave too little warning at grow op bust Greg Joyce, CP, Feb. 23, 05

VANCOUVER (CP) - A husband and wife have been acquitted of growing marijuana after an investigating RCMP officer failed to give them enough time to answer their door before he smashed it down with a battering ram.

"This judgment reinforces the fact that the police should knock and announce and give the homeowner an opportunity of getting to the door," the accused's lawyer, David Tarnow, said Tuesday after the B.C. Supreme Court ruling.


Simply unbelievable! While the police wait politely at the door, drugs can be flushed down, burned or . . .





Lawyer guilty of money-laundering -- Police say conviction in 2002 sting shows growing sophistication of organized crime Paul Waldie, February 23, 2005

A Toronto lawyer was found guilty of money laundering yesterday in a case the RCMP say demonstrates the growing sophistication of organized crime.

Simon Rosenfeld was one of about 55 Canadian and U.S. citizens arrested in 2002 as part of a sweeping RCMP-FBI sting called Bermuda Short, which exposed a raft of stock-market manipulation and money-laundering scams. [. . . . ]

Ms. Rosett is a journalist-in-residence with the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies. Her column appears [in the Opinion Journal] and in The Wall Street Journal Europe on alternate Wednesdays.

So prolific in scandal has the United Nations become that it's getting hard to keep tabs. You can surf the channels, from rape by peacekeepers in the Congo, to theft at the World Meteorological Organization, to a Human Rights Commission crammed with despots; from inadequate auditing to botched management to wasted money to running the biggest heist in the history of humanitarian work--the Oil for Food program in Saddam's Iraq.

Canada to welcome Vietnamese boat people with family here -- Keeping it in the family

Our government is going to permit "family class" immigration of boat people originally from Vietnam who are living in the Philippines presently -- something about needing a relative here in order to get that magical passage to Canada.

Canada to welcome vietnamese boat people with family here Feb. 23, 05, Elizabeth Thompson, CanWest

[. . . . ] Under a decision taken yesterday by Citizenship and Immigration Minister Joe Volpe and to be announced tomorrow, those who fled Vietnam to the Philippines in 1988 will be allowed to come to Canada provided they can prove family ties to people already here. [. . . . ]



I hate to be cynical about this but, as soon as I read of this, something twigged in my mind. Let's see, now, some of the worst and most violent drug gangs--or should I call them business operatives--in Canada are part of the Vietnamese Canadian community. Do you suppose any of them have a relative in the Philippine "refugee" contingent? What kind of checking is or can be done by an overworked border/port patrol when the IRB is stocked with government appointees and "stakeholers"? Give me a break!

I must declare a personal interest of a sort; I have noticed a new interest out of the Philippines in my blog. I believe I have mentioned before the hacks from the drug areas of the world--very specific locations can be traced. I doubt that the local Philippine populace is interested in my political views. What is this Philippine interest? Make a guess.




ASIAN ORGANIZED CRIME AND TERRORIST ACTIVITY IN CANADA, 1999-2002

PREFACE

This study is based on open source research into the scope of Asian organized crime and terrorist activity in Canada during the period 1999 to 2002, and the extent of cooperation and possible overlap between criminal and terrorist activities in that country. The analyst examined those Asian organized crime syndicates that direct their criminal activities at the United States via Canada, namely crime groups trafficking heroin from Southeast Asia, groups engaging in the trafficking of women, and groups committing financial crimes against U.S. interests. The terrorist organizations examined were those that are viewed as potentially planning attacks on U.S. interests.

[. . . . ] Vietnamese criminal groups range from street gangs engaged in drug trafficking to highly sophisticated groups. The groups are known to be very violent, and some members are reported to have been trained in the use of weapons and explosives. The groups are expanding in the area of high technology crimes and have engaged in the theft of computer parts, which they sell on the black market to third world countries. Vietnamese groups also are believed to be involved in the trafficking of women.

Vietnamese groups, especially the street gangs, are generally less formal in structure than many other organized crime groups. This lack of organization often has meant that they are extremely mobile and able to cooperate with other organizations. Quite often, Vietnamese groups lack ties to any one community and, therefore, may travel to various cities to set up temporary operations. These networking activities have led to fear that they eventually will organize into more formal and structured groups.108

Vietnamese organized crime groups also are known to work with the Hells Angels, mainly in British Columbia, for the large-scale cultivation and exportation of marijuana. These activities have been expanding eastward across Canada to Ontario. It is estimated that there are approximately 15,000 to 20,000 marijuana-growing operations in the Lower Mainland with an estimated sale value of CDN$6 billion.109

[. . . . ] According to a CISC report, Vietnamese groups control approximately 80 to 85 percent of the heroin trade in the Kamloops area of British Columbia. Vancouver also is used as a transshipment center for trafficking heroin into the United States, and is reported to have approximately 10,000 marijuana growing operations. Vietnamese gangs are reputed to be controlling much of this activity.116 Vietnamese crime groups import heroin directly from the Golden Triangle region, almost always through Vietnam or China. Typically, couriers bring in body packs that contain less than five kilograms per person per trip.117

CISC Report 2004 -- "Across the country, Vietnamese-based groups remain extensively involved in multiple residential marihuana grow operations with distribution within Canada and to the U.S."

[. . . . ] Across the country, Vietnamese-based groups remain extensively involved in multiple residential marihuana grow operations with distribution within Canada and to the U.S. These operations are widespread throughout the B.C. Lower Mainland, Alberta and southern Ontario and will continue to increase in Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Quebec and Atlantic Canada. Profits from marihuana cultivation are often reinvested in other criminal activities, such as in the importation of ecstasy and cocaine. Marihuana cultivation continues to affect Canadians’ health and safety, often resulting in toxic moulds, condemned grow houses, fire hazards and chemical vapours from pesticides. Additionally, individuals involved in marihuana cultivation often experience violence through home invasions, assaults and booby-traprelated injuries.

[. . . . ] The border area between B.C. and Washington state is exploited by organized crime groups, such as Vietnamese-based and Eastern European-based groups. In Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, organized crime also exploits the land border to move contraband, particularly illicit drugs. The southwestern Ontario border with the U.S. is the focal point of the largest flow of international legitimate commercial and personal traffic. In some instances, illicit drugs have been concealed within commercial shipments facilitated by a small element within the trucking industry that has been corrupted by organized crime.

[. . . . ] The unique geographical locations of some Aboriginal reserves, particularly those near the Canada/U.S. border, have been exploited by Aboriginal-based smuggling groups to smuggle drugs, firearms, tobacco and people between Canada and the U.S. In many instances this illegal movement is conducted on contract for other organized crime groups based in Ontario and Quebec.

Bikers and Asian-based Organized Crime

Sgt. Woods explains that the majority of urban grow houses they take down are controlled by Asian organized crime groups, along with “transfer” houses where the drugs are bagged and weighed, but that distribution networks are the territory of Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs (OMGs). “There’s no doubt they control distribution,” he says. “But there are so many layers between them and us that they’re untouchable.” While bikers used to control marijuana cultivation in Canada in the mid 1990s, Asian-based organized crime has moved into major centres in B.C., Ontario, and Quebec, and is making inroads in other provinces, says Daniel Lacroix, an intelligence analyst with the RCMP’s Criminal Intelligence Directorate. Mr. Lacroix adds that bikers still have a stronghold in Quebec, but have lost their monopoly in some Canadian cities, expanding operations into outlying areas, like suburbs and rural townships. “In some cities [in Quebec], the Asians are playing a greater role but bikers control most of it,” he says. “Asian groups are operating in Laval today, and that would have been unheard of 10 years ago.” One hundred kilometres east of Laval, residents call with tips on local grow operations almost every day, says Corporal Roger Caron, head of Granby Detachment in Quebec, just 50 kilometres north of the Vermont border. But keeping up with day-to-day calls while targeting the drug networks that sustain marijuana cultivation and other drugs is impossible, admits Cpl. Caron. “It’s totally out of control,” he says. “And what worries me most is that this problem is not going to get any better.”
