I live a few streets away from where this video was shot. The video is not Earth shattering but I have seen this phenomena here. The last time I saw one coming from the South East. It looked like a moving star, just like the video below, but it veered left and then went up right to the Orion constellation where it “parked” itself underneath it pretending to be a star. It stayed there for hours until I could not see it anymore because the Sun came out.
Something’s flying in the air over the Camosun and Jubilee neighbourhoods of Saanich and Victoria and it’s got Mike Allan thinking differently about what’s in our sky.
Allan lives with his family on Haultain Street, a few doors in from Richmond Road. He was a skeptic about anything that had to do with the phrase ‘unidentified flying object’, until he became witness to some strange events when he arrived about five years ago.
(One of the only instances of footage that Allan has.)
Since then he’s witnessed the strange occurrence of light, kind of like a star, that moves around the sky in abnormal ways, often hovering.
Other UFO’s have been recently reported in Duncan and Sooke.
In this case, the light mostly runs northwest to southeast, loosely mimicking the path of a satellite, Allan said.
“Sometimes there’s two at satellite altitude but then they criss-cross and satellites don’t do that.”
Usually the light is the size of a star but much brighter. Its movement is unlike any plane, drone or satellite, Allan said. They appear below cloud levels and as high as the satellites.
“When I tell people they look at me like I’m crazy, and granted I would think they were crazy too but it’s happening,” Allan said. “My neighbours are totally skeptical until they see it, now there’s a few of us who’ve seen this.”
Unsure exactly what it is, he refers to it as “the bright thing in the sky.” His daughter calls it “the UFO-thingy,” he laughed.
“When we moved to Haultain we had a tenant that was full on into UFOs, and I was like yeah right, there’s no such thing,” Allan said. “Now whenever I’m out at night I’m looking up, looking for one, and then it’s a matter of getting someone who’s closest to you to see it too.”
Allan’s neighbour, Darrel, is among those who’s since come to recognize the odd incidents of lights.
“It defies physics, whatever it is, these aren’t drones,” Darrel said. “Maybe it’s military or something.”
They are too bright for their size to go without a motor, Allan said.
“To have that amount of light you’d need a powerful motor, you think you’d hear it.”
The light isn’t always the same. They can be seen during the day and at night.
“Last week it was low, it was not a satellite,” Allan said. “[Satellites] don’t bob through the air. It’s something kind of like turbulence, with no flashing beacons, moving faster than planes do across the sky.”
Ben Dorman, a longtime volunteer with the Victoria chapter of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, and has spent a lifetime looking up at the Saanich sky with his naked eye and through telescopes. He coudn’t speak to anything within the atmosphere and said there aren’t any similar optical illusions in the sky similar to this that he knows of.
“The only bright things which move through the sky are above the atmosphere and they’d be a streak,” Dorman said. “Something in orbit is not going to dance around.”
So what is it?
As conspiracies go, anything is possible, Allan says.
“By the definition of UFO, yes, it’s an unidentified flying object. Everyone’s skeptical until they see it. What can I say, you gotta keep looking at the sky, they’re there.”
The Australian city has topped the Economist Intelligence Unit’s ranking of the most livable cities in the world for the seventh year in a row.
Melbourne has been awarded the title of the world’s most liveable city for the seventh year in a row in the Economist Intelligence Unit’s ranking of the most livable cities in the world.
The ranking was calculated by assessing 140 cities around the world, and giving them a score out of 100 based on stability, healthcare, education, infrastructure and culture.
The top 10 cities remained unchanged from last year. Vienna and Vancouver came second and third respectively, followed by Toronto, Adelaide, Calgary, Perth and Auckland. The Finnish capital of Helsinki, and the German city of Hamburg rounded up the top ten.
Melbourne scored 95 for stability, 95.1 for culture and environment, and a perfect 100 for education, healthcare, and infrastructure. The city got an overall rating of 97.5. No city was able to make the top mark of 100, which is labeled as ‘ideal’.
Meanwhile, global business cities including New York, London, Paris, and Tokyo – described by the Economist Intelligence Unit as being ‘victims of their own success’ – are all named outside the top ten list because of ‘high crime, congestion and public transport problems’.
Several U.S. cities registered declines in their scores which, the report says, ‘stems in part from unrest related to a number of deaths of black people at the hands of police officers’, as well as ‘protests held in response to President Trump’s policies and executive orders’.
Meanwhile, Syria’s war-torn city of Damascus occupied the bottom position as the least liveable city in the world. Lagos in Nigeria, Tripoli in Libya, Dhaka in Bangladesh, and Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea made up the rest of the bottom five.
The report pointed out that the world’s security is volatile due to rise in militancy targeting innocent people. More broadly, global stability continued to weaken due to the increase in terror-related incidents world wide.
“Violent acts of terrorism have been reported in many countries, including Australia, Bangladesh, Belgium, France, Pakistan, Sweden, Turkey, the UK and the US. While not a new phenomenon, the frequency and spread of terrorism have increased noticeably and become even more prominent.”
A report by the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR), suggests the US war in Afghanistan has been fueling America’s drug crisis.
RT: Do you think there are any links between the record production of opium in Afghanistan and America’s heroin crisis?
Jim Dean: It is a connection in that before we went into Afghanistan there was almost no heroin production there. And then after we went in it miraculously began to skyrocket, because the northern warlords went back into growing opium to fund the war and also enrich themselves. What also happened is, we found out much later that US contractors – particularly not only the military but the ex-military people who were involved in doing a lot of the flights in and out of the country began shipping drugs out.
We did not know whether they were just doing it on the side. But later we found out a lot of the increase in heroin production was being officially done and the money … eventually ending up in political campaigns in the US, and also to fund black projects for intelligence operations that they didn’t want anyone in Congress to know.
So yes, the big increase in production did come as a result of the US invasion of Afghanistan. But the story gets a little more complicated because once you have opium, it has to be turned into heroin. That is a long story that evolved over what’s been many years now.
RT: There has been a warning that heroin has been smuggled from Afghanistan into the US through Canada. How is it possible?
JD: Canada has a lot of their heroin coming in from Afghanistan. The Canadian border is the most porous because it has the least number of border enforcement people. In terms of carrying things in, they can’t have people stationed every 100 yards.

We hear in the US that heroin production in Mexico has also greatly increased and officials here, although there is disagreement on this, say most of the heroin currently coming into the US is coming from Canada, but that the amounts coming in from Afghanistan are increasing. The question is: how are they getting in after all of those long fights. The danger of shipping it for a long distance.
Our information is that a lot of it is being brought in are government operations that are being secret, they don’t go through normal customs, because their operations are classified, and they have their own air transport. This is how a lot of this drug trafficking is going into political campaigns, and big wigs are moving around through the defense and intelligence contractors that are being widely used now by the US.
Americans putting their lives on the line in Afghanistan deserve better from their commander-in-chief” –
RT: What is the main cause of opium production increase in Afghanistan?
JD: The US campaign just made it completely wide open. The country was devastated economically – there was no real economy. So growing drugs, and particularly poppies, no other crop could really compete with it. And the Taliban was no longer there to stop drug production because they knew what the long-term consequences would be.
It is a little bit more complicated because a lot of that heroin and opium was traveling not only into the former Soviet Union states but also into Russia. They have their own growing epidemic because they were being flooded with cheap heroin coming out of Afghanistan. We see now that was part of the destabilization process that the West and NATO was beginning with Russia; to increase the problem that they have with drug addiction, and Putin spoke out about this very early on.

Snidanko’s fame went international when former Vancouverite Tommy Chong used him as the inspiration for Sgt. Stadanko, the opening track on Cheech and Chong’s 1973 comedy album Los Cochinos.
The fictional Sgt. Stadanko also appeared in the Cheech and Chong films Up in Smoke and Nice Dreams. But what the real Sgt. Snidanko thought about his fictional counterpart is unknown — he declined interviews.
Snidanko died Aug. 2 at his home in Richmond, two months shy of his 80th birthday.
“He had renal failure, heart (failure), everything just shut down,” said his son Ryan. “But he did pass away very peacefully. He was home, he didn’t want to go to the hospital. He was very stubborn that way.”
Adrian Snidanko was born in Smokey Lake, Alta., and grew up in Edmonton, where he was a Golden Gloves boxer. He joined the Mounties when he was 18 and was posted to B.C., initially in Penticton and then in Vancouver.
“He was one of the first members in the Vancouver street crew, (policing) street-level trafficking in the Downtown Eastside and around the city,” said Ryan. “Drugs were a federal jurisdiction back then, so the RCMP had jurisdiction over it.”
As Vancouver became a hippie haven and pot use spread, Snidanko worked hard to stem the tide. Psychedelic music promoter Jerry Kruz recalls that Snidanko went all out at a 1966 Steve Miller show at Kruz’s venue, the Afterthought.
“He had all the traffic stopped on (Fourth Avenue), it was like a movie scene,” said Kruz. “I came out in front and the whole street was blocked off, he had barriers at each end of the street, at Arbutus and Yew. Abe came in with a procession of cops behind him, Abe and (his cohort Const.) Brown.

In our August 7 eulogy for the late Ernst Zündel, we alluded to the “Talmudic mentality” and the penchant of people afflicted with it for revenge and hatred, which they project on to Zündel in paroxysms of rage and libel.
No sooner had we published our tribute than Mark Bonokoski stepped forth to confirm our observation.
Mr. Bonokoski writes for one of Canada’s largest newspapers, The Toronto Sun. It’s difficult to account for the fact that the Sun, which wears its human rights’ heart on its self-righteous sleeve, would print Bonokoski’s disgusting column, with its sadistic craving to see a pound of flesh extracted from Zündel, but that’s what has occurred.
In the August 7 issue of the Toronto Sun online, in an article titled — believe it or not — “Ernst Zündel deserved agony,” Mr. Bonokoski was not content with the lifetime of persecution inflicted on Zündel for his ideas, speeches, printing and writing, including multiple costly criminal trials, two years’ imprisonment in solitary confinement in Canada, five years imprisonment in Germany, the burning of his home and its contents by an arsonist, and his deportation and subsequent banishment from the United States and Canada.
In Bonokoski’s fevered imagination:
“Zündel deserved agony, but got none. The fact that he was able to die at home in Germany, of natural causes, and apparently in robust health up until the heart attack hit, is just another example of how life isn’t fair.”
These are grotesquely inhuman words. What sort of mentality urges suffering and cruelty on a dead activist? It can be found here:
“Jesus shares his place in the Netherworld (hell) with Titus and Balaam, the notorious arch enemies of the Jewish people. Whereas Titus is punished for the destruction of the Temple by being burned to ashes, reassembled, and burned over and over again, and whereas Balaam is castigated by sitting in hot semen, Jesus’ fate consists of sitting forever in boiling excrement.”
—Peter Schäfer, Jesus in the Talmud, Princeton University Press, p. 13, (with reference to the Babylonian Talmud tractate Gittin 57a).
What sort of mentality decries the hatred of Jews but approves the hating of Germans? It can be found here: “Every Jew, somewhere in his being, should set apart a zone of hate — healthy, virile hate — for what the German personifies and for what persists in the German.” — Elie Wiesel, Legends of Our Time, chapter 12: “Appointment with Hate,” (Schocken Books, 1982).
“The anti-German bias of Elie Wiesel’s article (“An Appointment With Hate,” Commentary magazine, December, 1962), is easily justified and need not be repudiated.” writes Joseph Meier in Commentary magazine, dated April 1, 1963.
Because few people with social standing have the courage to point out the megalomania and searing hypocrisy evident in the preceding citations, these malignancies grow unchecked, conferring upon our supposedly egalitarian society a Talmudic supremacism consisting of special prerogatives for bullying and hating marginalized dissidents and non-conformists, who have little or no voice in the mainstream media and are dehumanized with impunity, to the glee of the guardians of “human rights.”
I don’t like organized sports but I have been an athlete all my life and I pay respect. These shots are awesome.
I used to focus on the defense part of the game. No one would go pass thru me. Well, that’s the idea and it only works half the time. You know why? Because there is always someone bigger, smarter, and better than you. That’s what I learned from sports.
