Fresno Deputy Police Chief Gets Four Years in Prison For Selling Drugs

Keith Foster lacks remorse and has not accepted responsibility for conspiring to peddle heroin and marijuana while employed as deputy chief of the Fresno Police Department, a judge said Monday in U.S. District Court.

Foster, 53, also committed perjury on the witness stand during his trial in May, Judge Anthony Ishii said.

In addition, Ishii ruled that Foster obstructed justice and violated his position of trust.

Yet, the judge sentenced Foster to 48 months in prison, when the prosecution sought a sentence of 78 months.

In announcing the punishment, Ishii said there’s a perception in society that “people with money or in high positions get a break.” But the judge said he had balance Foster’s positive contributions to the community, which include nearly 30 year of police work.

Ishii also noted Foster’s strong family ties and his lack of a criminal record before his conviction.

Foster stood quietly next to his attorney, Michael McKneely, when his sentence was announced. He has to surrender to federal authorities by Jan. 13. Outside court, Foster, surrounded by family and friends, appeared more upbeat, vowing to appeal his conviction and sentence.

The 48-month sentence is similar to the punishment offered in a plea deal that Foster rejected prior to going to trial.

On May 23, a U.S. District Court jury found Foster guilty of conspiring to distribute heroin and marijuana. The jury was unable to reach a verdict on six other charges, including distribution of oxycodone.

E. Marshall Hodgkins, Foster’s lawyer, called the result “a tragedy.” He said Foster was offered a plea deal of four years in prison during the trial, but turned it down.

The verdict put a dark cloud on the Fresno Police Department, where Foster rose through the ranks to become Chief Jerry Dyer’s likely successor, and put a damper on Foster’s image as a role model to the city’s west side community.

State Authorities Fine 5yo Girl for Selling Lemonade Without Business License


Porterville, CA — The state knows no empathy, logic, or reason and will enforce its most asinine decrees—even if it means targeting an innocent five-year-old girl’s lemonade stand. Without resistance, this encroachment upon our everyday activities is as inevitable as the tide.

In Porterville, California, a family is learning this harsh reality of the state after they were issued a citation from city hall for $59—the local fee for applying for a new license—plus a fine.

Autumn Thomasson proudly set up the stand outside her family’s home last June as a means of raising money to buy a bicycle. She sold lemonade, candy, and snacks and raised a whopping $82—enough to buy herself a new bike.

Her family took to Facebook to celebrate the young entrepreneur’s hard work.

“It meant so much to know she earned her own money, that Mom and Dad didn’t need to go buy her. She got to bring her own wallet and buy it herself and pay at the cash register,” DeHaas told Fox26.

However, her entrepreneurial spirit was crushed this week after her mother received the threatening note of extortion in the mail.

“What kind of world do we live in where kids can’t do lemonade stand or any kind of stands for that matter without getting in trouble?!” Gabby Dehaas wrote of her daughter’s extortion over lemonade. “How are we suppose [sic] to show our kids to work hard for what they want and to expand their ideas/entrepreneurship if they need a license for every little thing! I just got fined for my daughter have a 3 hour lemonade a couple months ago, so she could know how to earn enough money, to know a value of a dollar! 
I’m not mad about the money for the fine I’m mad about the pettiness of the reasoning. These things are just straight wrong!”

The citation included a print out of Dehaas’ Facebook post advertising her daughter’s stand.

“I was thrown back by that. I didn’t appreciate a screenshot of my daughter sent back to me,” DeHaas said.

After Dehaas’ post began to pick up steam, however, authorities quickly back-peddled once their ridiculous extortion scheme was exposed.

Porterville City Manager John Lollis told Fox26 the letter was sent in response to a complaint filed with the city. He is now apologizing.

“There’s no excuse why it should have been sent,” he said. “We want our youth to be engaged and looking at business opportunities.”

DeHaas told Fox 26 that her daughter learned a valuable lesson about this entire debacle. “There’s always gonna be bitter people or bad people,” she said. “But there’s always gonna be good outweighing everybody.”

Despite claiming that this letter “should not have been sent,” the reality of the matter is that municipalities across the United States carry out similar rackets on a daily basis—especially in California.

As TFTP previously reported, Orange County authorities shut down Annabelle Lockwood’s “small business” and gave her 30 days to get the proper permit and license.

The permit was said to cost around $200, but in order to secure the permit Annabelle was told she’d need to meet a bevy of government requirements – costing $3,500 – just to serve fresh-squeezed fruit juices to thirsty passersby.

Bearing down on the age-old tradition of youngsters setting up lemonade stands demonstrates how obsessed the State has become in “regulating” small business.

It appears that Annabelle made it through the gauntlet, with the help of many who donated to her GoFundMe account after reading her story and Thomasson received an apology. Others, however, are not so fortunate.

In Portland, Ore. an 11-year-old girl wanted to sell mistletoe from their farm at a holiday market to help her dad pay for her braces, which cost $5,000. But the Parks Bureau refused to let her set up without a permit, lease or concession agreement. She was told she could beg instead.

New Nissan Leaf selling well in Europe

When the 2018 Nissan Leaf was introduced with its 150 miles (or so) of range, I speculated that there might be a strong market for a lower cost, medium-range electric vehicle to compete with the 200+ mile Chevy Bolt and 300+ mile Tesla Model 3. After all, you have to weigh an extra 100+ miles of range that you may rarely use against the $5000 or more premium you’ll be paying to get it.

So far, that prediction appears to be panning out. Autoblog reports that Nissan has taken more than 9000 orders globally in the first two months of availability. 3,500 of those have been in Europe, with more than 2,000 in Norway alone.

The car isn’t yet in showrooms on this side of the pond, but Nissan has been taking pre-orders. It will be interesting to see how the Leaf fares in the more road-trip centric US culture. As someone who has seen my used Nissan Leaf actually improve in terms of practicality as charging infrastructure proliferates, I’m pretty confident that this car would meet the real world needs of a great many drivers with little to no question of range anxiety. Whether that translates to actual sales, however—or whether the more-is-better mentality means everyone springs for a 200+ range car, even if they don’t need it—will remain to be seen.

Humans aren’t exactly rational about many major life decisions. Buying a new car is no different.

Clinton Selling Uranium to Putin Is Not the Endgame-“Can You Hear Me Now?”


can you hear me now poster 2

I told you so, I told you so, I told you so. I even told you so with much more detail, more than two years ago, than the media is telling you today. This is not the egotistical rant of an insecure journalist. I do not have time for that as ego will not restore our Republic and preserve our right to worship the Lord in the manner that we Christians see fit. I am merely laying a foundation of credibility to reveal what is coming to America.

I going to present the I told you so, beginning two years ago. I am doing so because there are really bad, yet identifiable things coming that all of us need to prepare for. Most readers will not believe what is coming if I do not retrace my steps to over two years ago and, once again, build the case.

Despite the media revelations which validate my prior publications and the events related to Clinton selling Uranium to the Russians, there are major holes in the current reporting. One such related event has to do with why the Bundy’s are in prison. That will be revealed here in this article.

In December of 2014, I wrote an article where I made reference to Rules for Radicals. I was citing and applying “Rule 11” of this Clowared and Piven manifesto, and I made reference to what has now segments of the MSM and most of the Independent Media in an uproar as it is being revealed that Hillary sold 20% of Amercia’s uranium to Russia.

RULE 11: “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.

“As bad as Donald Trump is, Hillary Clinton is still waiting in the wings to save us.” …Under Trump, the Russians will rule the country because Trump is controlled by Putin. Hillary is not controlled by Putin, she is, therefore, the constructive alternative. Someone forgot to tell the MSM that Hillary sold 20% of American’s uranium to Putin.

America is really in an uproar because special prosecutor Robert Mueller, hired “to manufacture evidence of Trump’s Russian collusion activities”, actually was the first to deliver uranium to the Russians. Here is an excerpt of an article I wrote in July of this year:

WikiLeaks Implicates Mueller in the sale of Highly Enriched uranium at the behest of then Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton

“WikiLeaks Implicates Mueller in the sale of Highly Enriched Uranium at the behest of then Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton

Perhaps if Robert Mueller, Special Counsel, wants to investigate Russian collusion, he should start with himself.

At one time, I had a problem with Mueller’s appointment as Special Counsel because of his former friendship with disgraced FBI Director, James Comey.

While looking in the rear view mirror of recent history, my concern is trivial compared to what is presently being revealed. The stakes have grown to enormous proportions and Mueller is being proven to be guilty of multiple felonies as well as treason which is an offense which could potentially be punishable by death.

Former FBI Director Robert Mueller was appointed as Special Counsel for the sole purpose of investigating possible Russian collusion charges between President Trump’s campaign and the Russian government. On the heels of the collusion, Mueller is also looking for the smoking gun for obstruction of justice, on the part of Trump, which is the same charge that ultimately brought down the presidency of Richard Nixon. However, sometimes life is ironic and in a stunning development, Wikileaks, Julian Assange, tweeted a released State Department cable, which clearly and irrefutably proves that then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ordered former FBI Director and present Special Counsel, Robert Mueller to deliver a sample of stolen Highly Enriched Uranium (HEU) to Russia in 2009.”

In the same article, I published the confirming Russian memo to the same effect:

“…Uranium One, was created to handle the “dirty work” of the uranium transfer to the Russians. At the center of the shell corporation, as released Wikileaks records, demonstrates that an individual named Frank Giustra was the organizing figure. Over time, Giustra contributed a total of  $31 million to the Clinton Foundation in a clear case of pay for play bribery!

The Wikileaks released State Department communications show State Department officials had obtained, in the Fall of 2009, an internal Rosatom memo that warned about Putin’s intentions to acquire American originated uranium. Despite the evidence which should have forced Clinton to bring the FBI into the matter as an investigative body instead of being Clinton’s stooge in the uranium deal, presents clear evidence which was available to both Mueller and Clinton, a full year before the first CIFUS approval to move uranium to Putin,  Clinton did not recuse the State Department from the deal in which two CIFUS votes clearly gave Putin control of 20% of all American-based uranium.”

I actually made a short video this past summer about Clinton and Mueller and the selling of uranium to the Russians.

(the Numanna promo code mentioned in the video has changed to “Hodges9”)

In the same July article, released over 3 months ago, I published EXTENSIVE and supportive government-based documentation that proves that Mueller and Clinton delivered Uranium to the Russians for personal profit. Before moving on to more related information, please allow me one editorial comment:

Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were executed for sellling nuclear secrets to the Russians in the 1950’s. Bill and Hillary Clinton as well as Robert Mueller participated in and personally profited from the selling nuclear of grade material to the Russians. Which is worse? Should these three modern-day versions of Benedict Arnold face the hangman’s noose for committing heinous acts of treason against the people of the United States? Yet, Jimmy Kimmel keeps inviting Hillary Clinton on his show? This speaks to the true nature of Hollywood doesn’t it?


On January 5, 2016, going on 2 years ago, I published a detailed account about how the Clinton/Mueller sale of uranium to the Russians involved the Bundys and was the underlying reason of why the Bundys are still in prison. If you wondered why we have so little information on the Bundy family and their confederates, I will tell you.

In the January 2016 article, I detailed how Clinton’s minions would go on ranchers’ land and use the tyrannical power of the BLM to extract a sizeable portion of the nation’s uranium supply. Clinton, in turn, converted the funds into Clinton Foundation assets to be used for her run for the presidency.

In June of 2016, I published an account in which I accused Obama and Hillary of being double agents for the CIA and Russian intelligence. I was laughed at. I repeat the allegation and I would encourage the reader to go to the link and read the article which is almost a year and a half old. I guarantee the reader, that there will not be many laughing at this allegation like there were in the Summar of 2016.

On April 23, 2015, over 2.5 years ago, the New York Times first published the allegations that the Clinton Foundation sold uranium to the Russians. Many of my critics tried to falsely give me credit for breaking this so-called false story. But actually, it was the NYT that broke the story! I followed up and took the story to a whole new level from what the NYT reported. Dave Hodges and the New York Times, partners in journalism. Who would have thought that this was possible?

One can clearly see that I cited the New York Times for breaking the Clinton/Uranium story in January of 2015.


“…The New York Times further asserts that members of the Canadian mining industry, who have supported Clinton’s campaign, financed and sold off to the Russians a company known as Uranium One. Uranium One is directly responsible for transferring uranium from BLM land to the Russians through an off-shore holding company. Again, according to the NY Times, the Russians, through three The

I have much more detail that I have published with regard to this topic. I will give you one teaser. There are some sources that will swear that the Clinton Foundation, along with George Soros funded the Vegas massacre.  This is only part of a coming and bigger plot.

In future articles I will be revealing why this is true. However, there are even more pressing implications arising out of these events that link Bill, Hillary and Mueller to the Russians. For example, has anyone ever wondered why the liberals keep pounding the Russian collusion narrative against Trump, despite the fact that a blind man could see that it is not true? The strategy is called “hiding the evidence in plain sight”. Hillary and the Deep State knows that the uranium deal was surfacing. What better way to hide THEIR Russian collusion by accusing their opponent of what they were doing. Therefore, the Clinton Foundation can cover its tracks inside of this narrative. I offer these tidbits for what is coming. For what is coming is so threatening so frightening that nobody would have believed what I am going to reveal if I had not written an article about “I told you so”.

Gucci Announces They’re No Longer Selling Fur In 2018… But What About Leather?

Next Story

It’s official: World renowned Italian fashion brand Gucci will no longer be selling fur products. Set to be implemented by 2018, animal activists are calling the ban a “game changer” in the fashion industry, and it’s no doubt a step in the right direction.

Fast fashion has been a significant contributor to animal cruelty for a long time. Wearing fur used to be a necessity in colder climates centuries ago when there were limited or no other alternatives, but at this point it’s simply a fashion statement.

We have access to innovative, cheaper materials that can keep us equally if not more warm, yet we continue to torture and kill animals for their fur. Marco Bizzarri, President and CEO of Gucci, announced the fur ban on Wednesday at the 2017 Kering Talk at the London College of Fashion.

Gucci Announces a Ban on Fur

After announcing the ban, Gucci CEO Marco Bizzarri explained, “Being socially responsible is one of Gucci’s core values, and we will continue to strive to do better for the environment and animals.”

Gucci maintains that this shift can be attributed to their new creative director, Alessandro Michele. “In selecting a new creative director, I wanted to find someone who shared a belief in the importance of the same values. I sensed that immediately on meeting Alessandro for the first time,” Bizzarri said.

But, wait; it gets better. Gucci’s remaining items made of fur will be auctioned off, and the proceeds will be donated to the Humane Society and Italian animal rights organization LAV.

This is a really wonderful step in the right direction, as the fashion industry is no stranger to animal cruelty, but it’s doesn’t mean they’re banning all animal products. They’ll still be selling all of their leather goods.

Sometimes, when we see the fur on a piece of clothing, we can detach from the reality of its production. We’re not seeing it on a murdered animal, we’re seeing it on a clothing rack, so we don’t always make the connection.

And so, we continue to wear our snakeskin purses and our leather belts without so much as batting our eyelashes because we don’t think about what these consumer items once were. We don’t envision the deaths of these animals, we simply see the fashion items we so desperately desire.

Consumerism can be blinding, which is why it’s so important to share this type of information! We’re not trying to scare you, nor are we telling you you’re a bad person if you wear fur or leather. We’re just reminding you of what these products once were: living beings.

These furry friends who get turned into the latest fashion trends did not live full, beautiful lives. They were likely tortured to death, as many animals are electrocuted to death so their blood doesn’t splatter all over their fur. They live in tiny cages and barely see the light of day, if at all.

It’s not just devastating for the animals, but for the environment as well. Fast fashion has been an ongoing issue for decades. Many people will argue that leather and fur are more durable and more environmentally sustainable, but at this stage that’s simply no longer true. There are cruelty-free options available that produce far less pollution and emissions.

Final Thoughts 

Although Gucci still has a long way to go until they become a cruelty-free company, this is still a step in the right direction. Yes, they still produce leather products, which is a devastating reality, but at least they’re starting to understand the issue with killing animals for fashion and are beginning to reflect that in their product line.

Much love!

‘Smart-looking Gypsies’ selling fake bitcoins in Russian town

The man purchased the fake coins for a thousand rubles ($17,4) not far from one of the local shopping centers, according to his wife, who posted the information on social networks.

“Smart-looking Gypsies are selling ‘bitcoins’ near the Aksyenovsky department store. My husband bought a couple of coins for a thousand (rubles), came home and they turned up to be fake and it’s impossible to sell them,” she posted.

“The vendor assured that they were constantly rising in price and we could earn several thousand due to difference in the rate of exchange,” she wrote, posting her photo with the fake tokens.

The fraudsters working in the town could have bought the fake coins at any gift shop in Russia and abroad. An average price of a fake bitcoin sold in an online retail platform AliExpress is a hundred rubles ($1,74).

Meanwhile, local police have opened an investigation into the case following the publication, reports RIA Novosti.

“The police investigation hasn’t revealed any complaints about bitcoin scams from local people. We will go on checking,” said chief spokesperson for the Interior Ministry for Kaluga Region Natlia Gorokhova.

The spokesperson called on citizens tricked into buying fake cryptocurrency to contact the police.

Bitcoin and other digital currencies haven’t been legalized in Russia.

A new bill regulating the trade of cryptocurrencies is currently being debated in Russia’s lower house of the Federal Assembly, the State Duma, and is expected to be passed by the end of the year.

At the same time, the Central Bank of Russia is suspicious of the cryptocurrencies comparing them to a financial pyramid. The regulator reportedly continues assessing the phenomenon of cryptocurrencies.

AMAZON Called ‘TERRORIST’S Best Friends’ Selling All Parts Needed To Make Nail Bombs For $128 With No Safety Checks


EDITOR’S NOTE: You would think that when someone goes on Amazon and orders all the ingredients necessary to make a TATP explosive in a single order, that a security measure of some kind would be triggered. However, you’d be wrong. Looks like Amazon has no issues with supplying the would-be jihadists with all the tools necessary to ply their trade. Jeff Bezos should spend less time bashing Trump, and more time looking over the details of his own house. 

Amazon did nothing to halt the purchase or alert officials. Tory MP Alec Shelbrooke said: “It shows once again that internet firms aren’t playing by the rules. I would go as far as to say that Amazon is aiding and abetting terrorism.”

The Sun has decided not to detail the components for the “Mother of Satan”-style IED in full. Similar bombs, with a TATP explosive favoured by ISIS, were used in attacks at Parsons Green Tube station and the Manchester Arena.

Yet Amazon did nothing to alert authorities or halt our transaction. Former Military Intelligence explosives expert Major Chris Hunter said: “The fact that The Sun has managed to buy all of this in one go is truly terrifying.


“With relaxed security like this, Amazon really could be considered the terrorist’s best friend.”

He added: “This is really nasty stuff. The Sun’s managed to obtain lethal quantities of these chemicals that, when put together, could kill dozens and maim many more.

“Looking at all the material acquired, I estimate you’d be able to produce a device similar to those used on 7/7 which were able to destroy Tube carriages and a bus.

“How a multi-billion pound corporation can sell this without flagging it up to intelligence services beggars belief. They need to take a look at themselves and ensure it never happens again.”

The Sun launched its probe on the day of last week’s botched Tube attack at Parsons Green, South West London, which saw the terror level raised to critical. We used an account on Amazon set up that afternoon and bought the items, flagged on ­government warning lists.

No system kicked in to link our list of purchases and their potential use in making an IED. It had taken our team ­minutes on Google to find details of ingredients required for a bomb.



One item, hydrogen peroxide, is restricted for sale by the Home Office. But we were able to buy a repeat order on the site. Our purchases also included component parts including a pressure cooker, batteries and fairy lights.

The Government introduced extra checks to clamp down on the sale of suspicious chemicals after London’s 7/7 attacks. But loopholes in current guidelines exposed by The Sun mean Amazon is technically free to sell and deliver the DIY bomb kits.

Will Geddes of security consultants ICP said: “The fact you have bought these things is terrifying.

“I’m astounded you got them from one source in a single batch. Amazon should have a system where, when these items are bought together, they notify the authorities.”

Lady Gaga: ‘I Regret Selling My Soul To Illuminati Dark Forces’

Pop star Lady Gaga has spoken openly about her membership of the Illuminati for the first time to say that she regrets joining the secret society.

Gaga, a sufferer of the painful fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS), says she believes her longterm illness is the result of her allowing “dark forces” to manifest themselves in her body when she “sold her soul” to “the Illuminati” early on in her career.

The singer spoke candidly in her upcoming Netflix produced Gaga: Five Foot Two documentary which is meant to be a warts-and-all portrait of the troubled star.However, the final cut appears to be more of a fly-on-the-wall footage montage of rehearsals, studio sessions, public appearances, private late-night conversations, medical appointments, and multiple tearful breakdowns.

According to production staff, many of the interview scenes were left on the cutting room floor due to “orders from above”.

When describing some of the more interesting scenes that were cut from the final edit, production staff revealed that Gaga recalled meeting with a Catholic priest to discuss undergoing an exorcism to rid her body of the “dark spirituality” that she invited into her body during “Satanic rituals” early on in her career.

She described how she was first inducted into the Illuminati by “donating her soul” which she says took place at a club in New York’s Lower East Side after performing a burlesque show in 2006.

Gaga described the experience as “very real and visceral, not metaphorical at all.”

“I had just been on stage, it was a good show, I was high on the love and applause from the crowd.

“I was outside lighting a cigarette, thinking about scoring some more cocaine.

“I was aching for more. More of everything. I just wanted to feel good. Feel anything.

“Then this man, a strangely ageless man in a suit, spoke to me.

“He was leaning against the wall, smoking, and he said to me

‘I think you’ve got what it takes. Do you want it?’

“I asked what ‘it’ was. I thought he was coming on to me.

“But he smiled and said ‘Everything. Success. Fame. Riches. Power. Do you want it all?’

“I looked at him curiously. I couldn’t work him out.

“Then he just stood there and sang one of the songs from my routine earlier.

“It was otherworldly. “I stared at him like he was a dark jewel dredged up from the deepest ocean.

“I got down on my knees and asked him who I should praise.

“I looked him right in the eye and told him I wanted it all. “I told him I’d do anything.”

I have always been honest about my physical and mental health struggles. Searching for years to get to the bottom of them. It is complicated and difficult to explain, and we are trying to figure it out. As I get stronger and when I feel ready, I will tell my story in more depth, and plan to take this on strongly so I can not only raise awareness, but expand research for others who suffer as I do, so I can help make a difference. I use the word “suffer” not for pity, or attention, and have been disappointed to see people online suggest that I’m being dramatic, making this up, or playing the victim to get out of touring. If you knew me, you would know this couldn’t be further from the truth. I’m a fighter. I use the word suffer not only because trauma and chronic pain have changed my life, but because they are keeping me from living a normal life. They are also keeping me from what I love the most in the world: performing for my fans. I am looking forward to touring again soon, but I have to be with my doctors right now so I can be strong and perform for you all for the next 60 years or more. I love you so much.

A post shared by xoxo, Gaga (@ladygaga) on Sep 18, 2017 at 12:01am PDT

Before meeting the man she describes as “my illuminated prince,” Gaga had little commercial success or public recognition, as a struggling performer who mostly played in dive bars, in burlesque clubs, and at late night revues,  Gaga was able to create the music and achieve everything she had ever dreamed of, in exchange for one thing:

Her “soul”.Outside the Mercury Lounge in New York City that night, Gaga “concluded a deal” with the prince and instantly found that “success was a cinch”.

In exchange for her soul, Gaga was able to create the music for which she became famous with the most well-respected collaborators, producers, and promoters in the business queuing up to work with the unknown club singer.

Within one year she was one of the biggest selling artists on the planet. “His promises came true very quickly.””At the start, I thought we made a good team. But it wasn’t long before I began to suffer.”Gaga has fought with conflicting forces battling for supremacy inside herself for years, and she’s frequently at war with herself in the documentary.

One side is driven to perform, whistle the other seems to be struggling with “dark forces”.Gaga has suffered from the physical illness, fibromyalgia, a chronic pain condition, for years, which she is the physical manifestation of her fight to get out of the Illuminati-controlled record industry and break her contract with the “dark prince”.”

They may give you special powers, outer beauty, talent, and wealth for a while… but it doesn’t last,” Gaga said. “This is the reason why so many people who dabble in the dark arts are so unhappy. They flicker bright like a morning star and then wind up committing suicide or destroying themselves with substance abuse.”

They flicker bright like a morning star and then wind up committing suicide or destroying themselves with substance abuse.”Lady Gaga has recently announced that she is rescheduling the European leg of her Joanne World Tour, citing the “severe pain” that is impacting “her ability to perform”.

In a post from her official Instagram page, featuring a photograph of herself holding a crucifix and praying, she said she had “always been honest” about her physical and spiritual health conditions, and has been “searching for years to get to the bottom of them.”

“As I get stronger and when I feel ready, I will tell my story in more depth and plan to take this on strongly so I can not only raise awareness but expand research for others who suffer as I do, so I can help make a difference,” wrote Gaga.

After Cops Stole His Cash For Selling Unlawful Hot Dogs, The Internet Gave Him $70,000

The internet has spoken in the case of the viral video of police robbing a man for selling unlicensed hot dogs and they’ve raised over $70,000!

Berkeley, CA — Berkeley police are in the spotlight this week after one of their officers not only cited a man for selling hot dogs to willing customers without a permit but then opened up his wallet and robbed him of his cash as well.

The entire robbery was captured on video and subsequently went viral. But that was only the beginning. Showing how much society respects hard working entrepreneurs while decrying the police state that robs them, a Go Fund Me for the hot dog vendor has raised over $70,000.

The Go Fund Me campaign was started by the person who was brave enough to question authority and film the road side robbery. According to the campaign:

The funds raised will be utilized to cover legal and personal loses. In addition, funds in excess are to cover other vendors who have been robbed of their hard earned living through citations and removal of their carts. It is my goal to locate Juan in Berkeley. Any and all help to support and locate him is welcome.

On Monday, the video became so viral that UC Berkeley Vice Chancellor Scott Biddy had to issue a statement, in which he justified the theft of the hot dog vendor’s money.

“While I cannot comment on the specifics of this particular case, our practice is to issue warnings before giving a citation,” Biddy said. “In a case such as this, it is typical to collect any suspected illegal funds and enter them into evidence.”

According to NBC 5, UCPD officials said that three other people were warned about vending without a permit, but the vendor in the video was the only person who was given a ticket.

Perhaps it was because he had the thickest wallet.

Whether or not the money in the man’s wallet was from selling unlicensed hot dogs remains to be answered. However, that was apparently of no importance to UC police officer Sean Aranas who found it necessary to confiscate it all.

Yes, selling food without first paying the government for permission—known as a permit—is against the law. However, this does not in any way justify this incident.

“That’s not right man, that’s not right,” Martin Flores, the man who took the video, said as he used his phone to record Aranas issuing the hot dog vendor, Beto, a ticket.

“That’s how it works,” the male officer responded. “Take it to a judge, and the judge can decide whether or not it’s right.”

The officer then

took the money out of the vendor’s wallet, and when he began to protest in Spanish, the officer told him to “Back up.”

“You’re going to take his hard-earned money?” Flores asked. The officer replied, “Yep.”

“He doesn’t have a permit,” the officer replied as he dug through Beto’s wallet to steal his cash. “Yep. This is law and order in action.”

In an interview with NBC Bay Area’s sister station Telemundo, the street vendor said he holds down a regular job in construction. He was selling hot dogs to earn a little extra money, he said.

“People saw I wasn’t doing anything wrong,” he said of the response to the video. “I wasn’t stealing or drinking. I was just working to sustain my family.”

As TFTP has reported, in the Land of the Free, if you do not pay the State before you attempt to sell a product or service to a willing customer, you can and will be extorted, kidnapped and caged, with extreme prejudice.

Sadly, Americans are being conditioned to think that in the land of the free, people are somehow morally wrong if they try to make a dollar without first being extorted by the state.

The bottom line is — in modern day police state, USA — exchanging goods and services is a crime unless the State gets their cut. We are told that this is for our safety and that we could all die if a brown man sells unlicensed hot dogs on the road side. But nothing could be further from the truth.

Morality does not equal legality — and the video above is more than enough evidence to prove this.
