Strain Review: Super Silver Haze
Top 5 Facts of Cannabis Strain Review Super Silver Haze on The Johno Show. Today’s strain review so we will be smoking the top 5 facts about the Cannabis strain known as Super Silver Haze. Fact Number 5: History & Lineage Super Silver Haze sesh was bred by the legendary Neville Schoenmaker. It became the King of Sativa’s when it won the HIGH TIMES Cannabis Cup three years in a row 1997, 1998, and 1999. It also won awards at the High Times Harvest Festival. Parents of Super Silver Haze are Northern Lights, Haze & Skunk Number 1. They combine to give the Super Silver strain star-studded genetics from this smoke session. Fact Number 4: Positive vs Negative Effects The strain can make users want to get on their feet. It does produce a lack of focus but it can also provides a very profound and thought provoking creative streak. Super Silver Haze shifts gears during the second half of its long lasting high and begins to soothe the body. Users may experience a brightening of colors and sharpening of sounds. For most users the strain can be effective daytime medication for fatigue, mood disorders, nausea and migraines. Some users may find the bodily effects heavier than others but it may alleviate chronic aches and pains. Positive – Happy, Uplifted, Euphoric, Energetic, Relaxed Negative – Dry Mouth & Eyes Medical – Stress, Depression, Pain, Fatigue, Lack of Appetite Super Silver Haze is considered to be good for headaches, migraines, and helping to manage anxiety. The uplifting effects are a great remedy for high stress levels or when suffering from a lack of appetite or nausea. Fact Number 3: Sativa vs Indica & THC/CBD Levels Super Silver Haze is a Sativa dominant strain with an 80:20 sativa/indica ratio. It has become one of the building blocks for superior cannabis since it was released in the 90’s. Fact Number 2: Appearance, Smell & Taste The smell of Super Silver Haze can vary greatly, depending on which phenotype you get. Most often, the strain will be reminiscent of earthy haze with undertones of fruity skunk, which translates to pleasurable, sweet-tasting vapor that will have you excited for another hit. Flavors – Sweet, Earthy and Citrus Tasting of spice, skunk and citrus Fact Number 1: You Gotta Smoke It to Know It! So how do I feel?

Strain Review: Larry OG
Hey Stoners Welcome to The Johno Show I’m your host Jonathan. It’s strain review day and today we’re doing a two-for-one cause not only am I gonna talk about the top 5 facts of the Cannabis strain known as Larry OG but I’m also using Quaddeucenil’s newest product their Cartridge Concealer. First off let’s talk about Quaddeucenil’s newest product their Cartridge Concealer. I’m in love!! First, look how tiny this thing is. It fits right in the palm of your hand and it only has one button, which produces 8 watts or 3.7 volts that vaporizes the oil. It fits all 10mm cartridges on the market today and the concealer comes with a magnetic attachment that fits onto the cartridge so it doesn’t slip out of the concealer. You just have to remember to take the attachment off before throwing away the used up cartridge. And the price is fantastic!! It’s just $20 but don’t expect to find this on the Quaddeucenil website anytime soon. Instead you’ve got to contact them directly but believe me it’s worth it. What I love most about this tool and maybe it’s just for the Larry OG or it’s true for all oils is that I can take one hit in the morning and it makes my body feel great. I can even take two hits and it completely relaxes me. It’s not until the third or fourth hit that I’m getting high. So it microdoses super well. Otherwise I’d need to roll and finish a joint or smoke from my bong or pipe and then I’d be completely stoned. This allows me to take the equivalent of a low dose xanax and work my way up to how high I need to get. Okay now let’s talk about the Larry OG… Fact Number 5: History & Lineage Larry OG, also called Lemon Larry is an indica hybrid that was originally created in Orange County. It’s a cross between OG Kush and SFV OG. It won 1st place for medical Indica strain during the Cannabis Cup2014. Fact Number 4: Positive vs Negative Effects The Larry OG produces a potent yet easy body buzz that will allow you to relax while getting things done. The effects are happy but not overwhelming. In fact, many users have reported they feel both stimulated and relaxed at the same time and I can definitely attest to that and for me it helps me focus and it alleviates stress so it’s a good strain for those suffering from depression. Positive – Relaxed, Happy, Uplifted, Euphoric Negative – Sleepy (which I haven’t personally experienced), Dry Mouth, Dry Eyes, Medical – Stress, Pain, Depression, Insomnia, Lack of Appetite Fact Number 3: Sativa vs Indica & THC/CBD Levels The THC count of Larry OG is around 21%. Its CBD is usually around 0.5% but since I’m using oil and not flower my understanding is that this Larry OG is an ethanol extract, which is different from BHO, CO2 and distillate and I’ll definitely get someone on the show to discuss the differences in each of these. Fact Number 2: Appearance, Smell & Taste Like other members of the OG family, this strain has a very clean and piney aroma. The nugs tend to be dense and feature distinct burnt orange hairs that are longer than average. It gives off a pungent sweet and fresh aroma. The taste of the strain is similar to the smell and is sweet and tangy. Now for me again since I’m using an oil the smell and taste to me…and I know this is weird…but it’s like Coca-Cola. Go figure. Flavors – Earthy, Lemon, Pine Fact Number 1: You Gotta Smoke It to Know It! So how do I feel?

Strain Review: Strawberry Cough
Top 5 Facts on Cannabis Strain Strawberry Cough. It’s strain review day and weedtuber Johno is talking about the top 5 facts of the Cannabis strain Strawberry Cough I’m using a disposable vape pen from JollyStick. Disposable vape pens have become very common in the market and for good reason. The pen itself doesn’t increase the price of the oil by that much. Plus it’s super easy to transport. It literally looks like you’re just putting a pen in your mouth. Now let’s look at this Strawberry Cough… Fact Number 5: History & Lineage Strawberry Cough is a potent sativa blend with unmistakable strawberry flavor, which is the result of a crossbreeding project by cannabis pioneer Kyle Kushman. Its won the title of Best Flower in the 2013 Cannabis Cup. Kyle Kushman, a former High Times editor and now the proprietor of L.A. dispensary Bud and Roses, developed Strawberry Cough largely by accident in 2000. Kushman says he received a small clone from another breeder. The clone had supposedly been grown next to a strawberry patch somewhere in Connecticut. Kushman called that original clone Strawberry Field and then crossed it with a Haze plant. The result is Strawberry Cough. Now here’s the part of the story that maybe one part truth and two parts fiction. The way Kushman tells the story is that he built a buzz around Strawberry Cough in New York City’s underground cannabis market. He then moved out west to focus on cultivation in California and handed out clones of Strawberry Cough on the cross-country drive, which in turn boosted its popularity to it’s now staggering level. Fact Number 4: Positive vs Negative Effects Positive Effects – Happy, Uplifted, Euphoric, and Relaxed. It’s great for managing social anxieties and helps balance stress. The strain provides a cerebral uplifting effect. It’s said to be great for problem-solving, creativity and deep conversation. Medical Uses – Primarily Stress and Depression but also good for Pain and Fatigue. Negatives – Dry Mouth, Dry Eyes and if you take too much of it there is a high probability you may experience paranoia. And the high lasts longer than usual at about 3 to 4 hours. Fact Number 3: Sativa vs Indica & THC/CBD Levels Strawberry Cough is a sativa-dominant Hybrid with 80% Sativa and 20% Indica. The THC level is said to be around 20%. Fact Number 2: Appearance, Smell & Taste Strawberry Cough has solid densely-packed leaves and the buds look like tiny pinecones. The flowers are covered in cloudy amber trichomes producing a slightly yellowish appearance. When you smoke Strawberry Cough it produces a harsh smoke that makes many people cough. Hence the name. Now I’m gonna give you little insight and tell you a funny story. First, I’m actually allergic to berries including strawberries. Of course there are no real strawberries in this cannabis it’s just the smell. But now I’m not sure if it’s because I’m just never around strawberries or haven’t tasted one since I was in my teens but to me this smells like baby poop. And now here’s the story. I was hanging with some friends and we were hot boxing a hotel room and passing around a wide assortment of strains. Then someone must have lit a version of this strain and I got so sick of the smell. I truly thought someone had shit their pants and I had to get out of there as quick as I could. Until now smoking this strain I still believed someone had shit themselves, which thankfully now I know is not the case. So while everyone loves this smell for being similar to strawberries. To me it smells like baby poop. Which does make me gag a little even now when I’m using the oil. Fact Number 1: You Gotta Smoke It to Know It! So how do I feel?

Strain Review: Zkittles
Here are the top 5 facts of the Cannabis strain known as Zkittles. Tim Mattson runs the CannaBus Culture Film Festival June 22nd at the Wythe Hotel Cinema in Williamsburg Brooklyn. So Tim before we get into all this tell us about the CannaBus Culture Film Festival… Now Tim a couple things have changed since you were here last time. It’s warm enough for us to get back into the studio and we now smoke at the very beginning of the show. So let’s take a moment to do that now. Fact Number 5: History & Lineage Zkittlez is an indica-dominant strain with a mix lineage of Grape Ape an Indica strain and Grapefruit a sativa as well as another undisclosed strain. It’s bred by 3rd Gen Family and Terp Hogz. Zkittlez took 1st Place in the 2016 Emerald Cup and 1st Place for Indica at the 2015 Cannabis Cups in San Francisco and in Michigan. Fact Number 4: Positive vs Negative Effects Despite the fact it leans towards indica it provides a very clear-headed, active, focus, and alert feeling with a body high that is relaxing, calming, and stress relieving as you come down from the peak of your high. The effects include Relaxed, Happy and Euphoric. It can make some users a little sleepy. Medically it works great for Depression and Stress. It has limited effect on nausea, pain and insomnia. It can definitely cause serious dizziness, dry eyes and dry mouth. Very few people also experience headaches. Fact Number 3: Sativa vs Indica & THC/CBD Levels Zkittlez is an even split with 50% Sativa and 50% Indica. The THC is supposedly between 9 and 15%. Fact Number 2: Appearance, Smell & Taste It literally smells and tastes like skittles!! The strain has a sweet candied citrus, lemon zest. When smoking it smells like someone left a bag of skittles on their dashboard on a very hot day. It’s a mix of citrus zest, tropical punch and those jellied citrus candies you eat at Passover. The nugs also look amazing as they explode in a spectrum of light green hues. Now here’s a crazy story about this strain. I was smoking this with some friends in a hotel room. We had the jar open for maybe ten minutes beforehand. After we were done smoking I walked around the room and the place smelled like fresh lemon. It was like the cleaning people had just polished the countertops. The smell just lingered in the room afterwards. I’ve never experienced anything like that before. Fact Number 1: You Gotta Smoke It to Know It! So how do we feel?

For Medical patients it works well for Stress, Pain, Depression, Lack of Appetite and to a lesser degree Insomnia.

Strain Review: G13
The Johno Show guest is Michael Solomon the owner of Easy Butter Maker. Today is strain review day. Here are the top 5 facts of the Cannabis strain known as G13. Before we get started Michael tell us a little about Easy Butter Maker for all our weedtubers out there. And as is customary on The Johno Show we light up before counting down!! So let’s do it!! Fact Number 5: History & Lineage Last week, when I was in Florida, we reviewed OG Kush, which had mysterious origins. Well here I am again in Florida again and wouldn’t you know it today’s strain is also clouded in mystery and myth. G13 was allegedly created by the CIA and FBI at a super-secret location at the University of Mississippi when they were working with native Afghani weed for “medical” purposes. Some believe it was the product of the NIDA Drug Supply Program. The story goes that a single cutting of the plant was liberated by an unnamed technician and bred for the masses. Allegedly the G in G13 stands for Government Indica Strain. In 1999 the super-strain was featured in “American Beauty” when Lester Burnham played by Kevin Spacey acquires some from next door neighbor Ricky Fitts played by Wes Bently. Fact Number 4: Positive vs Negative Effects G13 starts with a euphoric lift that hits you hard with a push of energy and even increases motivation. Unfortunately, that’s quickly taken over by a heavy full body buzz that locks you down into deep relaxation lasting for hours. You’re still able to retain a calm, clear head and uplifted mood particularly with a bong. Medically this strain can be used for Stress, Pain, Depression, Insomnia and to a lesser degree nausea. Negatives are big time dry mouth and to a lesser degree Dry Eyes, Dizziness, Headache and a slight bit of anxiousness. Fact Number 3: Sativa vs Indica & THC/CBD Levels G13 is an indica-dominant strain with 70% Indica / 30% Sativa and 22% to 24% THC. Fact Number 2: Appearance, Smell & Taste G13 has a pungent sweet, earthy skunk smell. Some people say it reeks of wild berries making your mouth water. I’m a little concerned because sometimes these berry smelling strains interpret themselves as baby poop for me, since I’m allergic to berries and are never around them to remember what that smell is. But the taste on your lips is supposed to be an unmistakable creamy sweet flavor. Fact Number 1: You Gotta Smoke It to Know It! So how do we feel?

The strain we are smoking today is #31. Fact Number 4: Positive vs Negative Effects Recreationally, Gelato is a great strain to chill with friends or do low-key social activities. It starts with a cerebral head rush that hits you with an uplifted euphoria and focused energy. As the head high builds the body buzz will slowly wash over you, leaving you completely relaxed and calm with a sense of peace and well being. Gelato has known to improve concentration and boost energy. As long as you aren’t a novice this strain’s high is head heavy and won’t leave you couch-locked. It makes conversation easy, while the calming effects of the bud can help keep any social stress or anxiety at bay. Novice consumers or those with a low tolerance may find this strain to be a little sedative. In high doses, this strain is known to make people feel dizzy. Medically, Gelato is great for chronic aches and pains including headaches and migraines. Patients suffering from muscle spasms, chronic pain, inflammation and fatigue can all benefit from Gelato. It can also offer relief from anxiety, depression, PTSD and can be beneficial to those who struggle to fall asleep. Some describe Gelato as having amplified psychedelic effects like time dilation and sound sensitivity. Fact Number 3: Sativa vs Indica & THC/CBD Levels Gelato is an Indica Dominant Hybrid at 55% Indica and 45% Sativa with an average THC at 20%. Fact Number 2: Appearance, Smell & Taste Gelato has a bold floral aroma with a ton of pungency.

The People vs The Attorney General
The Johno Show livestreamed the Marvin Washington Press Conference suing Jeff Sessions in landmark lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the controlled substances act. Attorney General Jeff Sessions was named a defendant today in a federal lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the Controlled Substances Act as it pertains to Cannabis/Marijuana. In a 90-page Complaint, attorneys representing five plaintiffs maintain that the CSA, in classifying Cannabis as a “Schedule I drug,” is so irrational that it violates the U.S. Constitution. In their Complaint, plaintiffs demonstrate that the Federal Government does not, and could not possibly, believe that Cannabis meets the definition of a Schedule I drug, which is reserved for the most dangerous of substances, such as heroin, LSD and mescaline. By way of comparison, cocaine and crystal meth are considered Schedule II drugs and are thus considered less addictive and less dangerous. To be classified under Schedule I, a drug: (i) must have a high potential for abuse; (ii) must have absolutely no medical use in treatment; and (iii) cannot be used or tested safely, even under strict medical supervision. The plaintiffs point out that the Federal Government knows that Cannabis does not meet these requirements, especially given that, among other things, the Federal Government: (a) obtained its own medical patent based upon the Federal Government’s assertion that medical Cannabis is a safe and effective treatment for Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, and HIV-induced dementia (among other conditions); (b) established a national policy to refrain from investigating and/or prosecuting medical Cannabis businesses and users in the 29 States and three other areas under American jurisdiction (including Washington, DC) that have legalized Cannabis for medical and/or recreational use; (c) provided instructions, through issuance of the FinCen Guidance, on how financial institutions can bank Cannabis business; and (d) admitted that Cannabis does constitute medicine, including through statements by the U.S. Surgeon General and a Federal Administrative Law Judge. “The record makes clear that the CSA doesn’t make any rational sense, and the Federal Government knows it,” says Michael Hiller, lead counsel in the case.” Hiller went on to explain that, “if the Federal Government doesn’t believe in the rationality of its own statute, it’s unconstitutional to enforce it.” Among the other claims in the lawsuit are that the CSA: (i) was enacted and implemented in order to discriminate against African Americans and to suppress people’s First Amendment rights; and (ii) violates plaintiffs’ constitutional Right to Travel. The plaintiffs include: Retired professional football player and Super Bowl Champion, Marvin Washington, who desires, but is ineligible (due to the CSA) to obtain grants under the Federal Minority Business Enterprise program, to open a business that would allow professional football players (among others) to treat with medical Cannabis to reduce opioid dependency and addition; An 11-year old girl, Alexis Bortell, who moved to Colorado from Texas so that she could treat her intractable epilepsy with medical Cannabis; A six-year old Georgia boy suffering from Leigh’s Disease, Jagger Cotte, who has been using medical Cannabis to lengthen his life and control his otherwise excruciating pain; Disabled military combat veteran Jose Belen, who uses medical Cannabis to control his post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD); and The Cannabis Cultural Association, whose membership includes many People of Color who contend that the CSA was enacted and has been enforced in a discriminatory manner, rendering them unable to participate in, among other things, the Cannabis industry.

Top 5 Facts about TransitBlog.net
Hey Stoners Welcome to The Johno Show. I’m your host Johno. We are here with my friend Matt, founder of TransitBlog.net. We’re gonna ask him 5 questions about Transit Blog. Yeah! Question 1: Tell us a little about the Transit Blog. Transit is a platform to shed light on the people, places and events that inspire us to get somewhere. I wanted to tell stories from the road, the amazing people I met along the way and the moments that inspired me. Question 2: Have you helped premier any local talent and events? I’ve covered up and coming local artists to established international artists (D Double E, Swindle). We’ve premiered several albums for local artists and helped organize and market events like the Freq Show. We are partnered with a few collectives- Sermon 3, Progressive Beat Culture and EyeStayGold Records. Moving forward we are working on more events, new contributors from around the world (right now we have London, Berlin and Toronto working on articles about social change in urban settings, music reviews, etc), and merch. The merch will be exclusive merchandise from local street artists and exclusive musical releases. There are giveaways and guerrilla campaigns in the works as well to help expand partnered brands. Question 3: What is Transit Blog’s input into the Cannabis Industry? As far as our involvement in the Cannabis industry, it has been fairly passive up until this point. Last year I was covering Philly Smoke Session events at One Art Community Center, however this year they were unfortunately shut down. Like the CannaGather event, I would like to cover more people creating the industry. I would also like to expand visibility of the possibilities to my base which is often bogged down by the taboo ‘weed’ ideals and embrace the ‘cannabis community’. I believe reaching people through music, art and urban culture we can create a better educated cannabis base. I will achieve this through giveaways, interviews and event coverage. Also on the side I’m starting to grow my network of industry professionals and as we get closer to a full blown industry I am positioning myself to be an asset for marketing (my background is in grassroots marketing for start-ups). Transit would be a strong tool in the arsenal, but also I would be able to connect event organizers and artists to emerging brands. Question 4: What are some noticeable changes you’ve seen in terms of Cannabis at some of these shows? Question 5: How can digital media be a strong ally in the Cannabis market as it emerges throughout the nation?

Bong vs Joint vs Pipe
We are here with Matt founder of TransitBlog.net. We are going to talk about the difference and preference of a Bong vs a Pipe vs a Joint. Matt give our audience a little preview of what we are going to talk about on Wednesday. I just want to give a big shout out to StrainCentral for originally covering Bongs vs Pipes. I’m adding to the conversation by including Joints. If you’d like to see his original video you can click on the pop-up here. So let’s talk technical. According to Urban Dictionary a Bong is a device used for smoking various substances, but most commonly marijuana. A bong is filled with water which cools the smoke as it passes through. The bong was invented several thousand years ago in the middle east for smoking of tobacco, but has since become a popular method of smoking marijuana. A bong is the preferred method if smoking marijuana for many people because it drives the smoke deeper into the user’s lungs faster, thus exposing more of the mucus membranes to the smoke and thus getting the user much higher using less marijuana. A bong can be made of any material which is impermeable to both air and water. Glass is often considered the best material for fabrication of bongs, because it is easy to clean, durable, and absolutely air and watertight. Plastic is also popular, but is generally used for bongs which will not be used for a long time, as they tend to develop problems with the seals around the stem and cone piece as they are generally not made with as much care as a glass bong. Other popular materials include ceramic, wood and metal. Basic a bong can be made out of anything as long as it’s non-flammable. The most basic bong consists of a mouthpiece, chamber, stem and bowl. The bowl is almost always made of metal, as it must be heat resistant in order to allow the substance to burn, although one will often find that the bong is moulded in a single piece made entirely of the same material. Bongs often have a hole on the side called a “carb” to allow air to bypass the stem and allow large amounts of smoke to enter the user’s lungs rapidly. A Pipe according to Urban Dictionary is a relatively inexpensive and easily concealed smoking device. Typically, a small amount of cannabis is placed in a cone on the end of a metallic cylinder, then lit and inhaled. Pipes tend not to be the preferred method of ingestion for most cannabis smokers – joints and bongs are easier to smoke, and most pipes cause the user to cough when burning because you’re only using air as the coolant. And a Joint is a rolled cigarette containing weed instead of tobacco.

Bananadine: Smoking Banana Peels to Get High
Will Smoking Banana Peels Get You High – What is Bananadine? Today’s Q&A comes from the Velveteen Lounge kitsch-en YouTube Channel and it’s all about smoking banana peels. Honestly, I’d never heard of anything like that so my buddy’s sent me some documents from The Straight Dope website where Cecil, a modern day Ann Landers answered questions and gave advice. This time a character by the name of Leper Naaman wrote to Cecil saying quote: “Getting high off of banana joints. Is there really a chemical called “bananadine”? If so, can you really get high from smoking dried-out banana skins?” For the most part Cecil’s response was at best belittling. So let’s skip those parts and really get to the heart of the matter. Since it’s 2002, I punched bananadine into Google.com. Seconds later I was looking at the following recipe: 1. Obtain 15 lb. of ripe yellow bananas. 2. Peel the bananas and eat the fruit. Save the skins. 3. With a sharp knife, scrape off the insides of the skins and save the scraped material. 4. Put all scraped material in a large pot and add water. Boil for three to four hours until it has attained a solid paste consistency. 5. Spread this paste on cookie sheets and dry it in an oven for about 20-30 minutes. This will result in a fine black powder (bananadine). Usually one will feel the effects of bananadine after smoking three or four cigarettes. The recipe was attributed to The Anarchist Cookbook by William Powell. Mr. Powell is very vocal in seeking the book he wrote to be discontinued. He says “The Anarchist Cookbook was written during 1968 and part of 1969 soon after I graduated from high school. At the time, I was 19 years old and the Vietnam War and the so-called ‘counter culture movement’ were at their height. … The book, in many respects, was a misguided product of my adolescent anger at the prospect of being drafted and sent to Vietnam,” Powell says he got much of the information from military manuals at the New York Public Library, although it’s likely the banana recipe came from somewhere else. The Anarchist Cookbook is still available, its author reduced to pleading that the book is “misguided and potentially dangerous.”

5 Facts on Dabbing
Will is going to walk me through how to use a dab rig and we’ll also talk about the benefits and some drawbacks of dabbing. Hey Stoners Welcome to The Johno Show a weedtube channel, I’m your host Jonathan. We are here with my friend Will from QuadDeuceNil. Will before we begin tell us a little about Quad Duece Nil. Will as you know I’m a traditionalist whose slowly exploring other methods of taking in Cannabis. For most of my life I didn’t even do bong hits. It was purely pipes and joints. So I have a couple of questions for you regarding dabbing. Are you ready? Question 1: What is a dab? Of course, one can avoid the harmful carcinogens by vaporizing cannabis, and that is the thought process behind “dabbing” as well. Using one of many solvents, concentrate makers are able to separate the essential oils, which contain cannabinoids and terpenes, from cannabis plant matter. A list of commonly used solvents include: ethanol (Everclear), Isopropyl Alcohol, Propane, CO2, and Butane. A lot of confusion about cannabis extracts stems from the lack of uniform terminology in the cannabis community. For instance, ‘Butane Honey Oil’, or ‘BHO’ as it’s commonly referred to, is a type of concentrate made using butane as the solvent. Question 2: Is Dabbing Safe? Question 3: How do you know how much to take? Question 4: What equipment do I need for dabbing? Four pieces of equipment are essential for dabbing: a water-pipe, nail, heat source, and a dabber. A nail is connected to the downpipe of a water pipe, and then heated using the heat source. This is primarily done using a butane torch, although eNails are fast growing in popularity. Question 5: What temperature am I dabbing at? Low-temperature dabs, which best preserve the flavor of your concentrates, typically occur at 600 and 710°F. Dabbing with a lower temperature than that can result in the nail not being hot enough to heat the concentrate, causing it to go to waste by pooling up on the nail, bubbling and dissipating. Dab at a hotter temperature and you risk wasting your concentrate, burning away the terpenes and causing a harshness in the throat and lungs. We highly recommend using a Carb Cap with dabbing, allowing you to reduce the temperature, enhancing the flavor and get the most out of your concentrates.

Top 5 Facts about Sploofy
Top 5 Facts about Sploofy – The Personal Indoor Air Filter. Today I present to the Top 5 Facts about the amazing indoor air filter known as the Sploofy. Fact Number 5: What is a Sploofy? Sploofy is a personal smoke filter for people who want to smoke indoors without the smoke and smell. It’s designed with a replaceable cartridge function, so that you can easily switch out cartridges without having to throw the whole unit away. Fact Number 4: How Was Sploofy Invented? In 2014 three crazy college stoners first witnessed a “sploof” in action, which is when you blow smoke out of your lungs and through a cardboard tube stuffed with toilet paper or dryer sheets. They quickly realized the world needed something that worked and looked a lot better. Dryer sheets only temporarily mask the smell, but they don’t eliminate smoke or odor, leaving odor to linger. The Sploofy filters are made using high quality HEPA, the same technology used for lab tech clean room environments. Sploofy contains premium activated carbon made from coconut shells that absorbs odor at it’s source. Fact Number 3: How Long Do The Filters Last? According to the guys at Sploofy there’s isn’t a definitive answer to this. A Sploofy cartridge can last anywhere from a few weeks to a few months, depending on the user. Using a 12″ straight shooter water pipe they were able to pack 300 personal sized bowls through the Sploofy. Wow! That’s incredible!! It also works with dabs and vaperizers but it doesn’t work as effectively with joints or blunts because it can’t capture the smoke burning from them. Fact Number 2: How to Clean Your Sploofy? The best way to clean the Sploofy is to use paper towels and rubbing alcohol to clean areas with resin build-up. Giving your Sploofy a sanitary wipe will help prolong its use. You can even extend the filter’s usage by twisting off the cartridge from the mouthpiece and let it air dry overnight. That will allow the moisture to evaporate and extend the life of your filter up to 30%! Fact Number 1: How Does It Work? STEP 1 – PACK YOUR BOWL Grab just enough for a personal hit so it doesn’t stay lit and continue to smoke after your toke. STEP 2 – LIGHT THE BOWL AND INHALE Once the bowl is almost empty, give it a quick, deep inhale to clear the bowl leaving nothing behind. STEP 3 – EXHALE Now, here’s where you’re gonna grab your trusty Sploofy and hold it up against your mouth. Be sure you’ve created a tight seal and – just like blowing out the candles on a birthday cake – exhale straight into the mouth piece. The smoke will travel through Sploofy’s carbonated filters and trap any impurities along the way, thus, releasing an odorless stream from the other end.

So select a convenient place for your thumb or finger to be when lighting up. STEP 2 – Stick poker into the near bottom of the plastic bottle, preferably on the other side for convenience. You want to select a spot that is slightly above where your water is. STEP 3 – Insert stem into the bottom hole at a downward angle.

Donald Trump: Caitlyn Jenner Loves Ted Cruz
Caitlyn Jenner Loves Ted Cruz and Donald Trump but hates Hillary Clinton. ESPN’s Arthur Ashe Courage Award Winner Caitlyn Jenner started the second season of her reality show I Am Cait with a bombshell. She wants to be the transgender ambassador in a Ted Cruz presidency. Let’s explore what this delusional reclusive privileged rich white male turned delusional reclusive privileged rich white female has to say about presidential politics and how that’s impacting the success of her show. This is a case of Jenner’s money leading her political beliefs instead of leading with her personal rights. Anyone can convince themselves of anything. And in Jenner’s case she’s convinced herself that her bank account speaks louder than her sexual identity. So let me educate you Ms. Jenner on your love for a Christian Right candidate whose voter base is looking to roll back the clock on all minority rights. The Washington, D.C. Office of Human Rights recently conducted a study that found that nearly half of surveyed employers would prefer a less-qualified candidate over someone they perceived to be transgender and a 2011 National Transgender Discrimination Survey found that transgender people are four times more likely to be living in extreme poverty with a household income of less than $10,000 and they experience double the rate of unemployment than your average US citizen. And as far as your love affair with Ted Cruz let me remind you that he was front and center in Houston’s equal rights ordinance quietly called the bathroom bill which would have forced transgender women to submit to a humiliating “genital check” if they wanted to use the ladies’ room. Cruz is quoted as saying ‘I don’t want my daughters taking showers with little boys’ and that’s just the tip of the iceberg with this guy. He opposes The Equality Act, a law which would protect transgender people from discrimination in employment. In fact, he once even said that he believes a gay florist should be able to discriminate against a Christian couple just to ensure that a Christian florist can continue to discriminate against a same-sex couple. Cruz has said he’d appoint justices to overturn same-sex marriage and even supported the idea that sodomy should be illegal again. He’s called marriage equality “fundamentally illegitimate, lawless, and unconstitutional”. He introduced the State Marriage Defense Act which would have caused same-sex couples to become “unmarried” when they crossed the border into a state that didn’t recognize their marriages and he’s a primary sponsor of the First Amendment Defense Act, which would enable discrimination against same-sex couples. And the idea that you would be the trans ambassador to a Ted Cruz presidency is completely delusional. In the Advocate article you are quoted as saying “Wouldn’t it be great, let’s say he goes on to be president, and I have all my girls on a trans issues board to advise him on making decisions when it comes to trans issues. Isn’t that a good idea? Yes, trans ambassador to the president of the United States, so we can say, ‘Ted, love what you’re doing but here’s what’s going on.” That’s like a Jew saying to Hitler I love what you’re doing to unite Europe but here’s what I think you should do for the Jews. It’s completely delusional!! I’d like to see the crowd’s response when Caitlyn attends a Cruz rally. I’m guessing it would turn into a Trump rally pretty quick. Now here’s how you know money talks with Jenner far more than her political beliefs. She bashed Hillary Clinton on her show saying “If we’re unfortunate enough to get Hillary as our next president, we need her on our side. Although she won’t be. She couldn’t care less about women. She only cares about herself.” That was before the first episode of season 2 aired to a horrendous seven hundred forty thousand viewers and a point three (.3) rating

Donald Trump: Revisionist Election
In the revisionist world of Donald Trump let’s not forget that he publicly mocked Serge Kovaleski, a journalist with a physically disability at a Trump rally. Trump claims to have never met Kovaleski, despite the reporter having written about Trump’s troubled business dealings for the N.Y. Daily News from 1987 to 1993; when Kovaleski had interviewed Trump in his office at Trump Tower and at a dozen press conferences throughout the years. When asked specifically about having met Kovaleski, Trump’s response was to slam the New York Times for asking the question and disgustingly claim Kovaleski was grandstanding on his disability. Here’s the Quote: “Somebody at the financially failing and totally biased New York Times said that, over the years, I have met Mr. Kovaleski. Serge Kovaleski must think a lot of himself if he thinks I remember him from decades ago — if I ever met him at all, which I doubt I did. He should stop using his disability to grandstand and get back to reporting for a paper that is rapidly going down the tubes.” Absolutely Disgusting! Reason 2: Muslim’s on Rooftops This is the man that went on television and proclaimed there were thousands of Muslim’s dancing on rooftops in Jersey City way before the election. Here is Donald Trump’s Quote: “I watched when the World Trade Center came tumbling down. And I watched in Jersey City, New Jersey, where thousands and thousands of people were cheering as that building was coming down. Thousands of people were cheering.” Reason 3: Trump’s Vegas Steakhouse Shut Down For Health Violations Trump claims to be a great business man but when you look at his business today all it is is a rubber stamping of his name on things. Trump is itself the brand and the man has zero to do with the management of these businesses that sport his name. A perfect example is Trump’s Steak House at the Trump International Hotel in Las Vegas, which was sited for 51 health violations including, ready to gag: expired yogurt, month old caviar, two week old tomato sauce, expired peanut dressing, an improperly functioning freezer, five month old duck, undercooked halibut and improperly thawed raw tuna. Reason 4: Trump’s Extramarital Affairs The divorce from Ivana was particularly public as her and Marla had it out in the tabloids. At one point Ivana screamed at Marla to leave her husband alone. Trump certainly doesn’t back down from his infidelities. At one point Donald had a radio show called Trumped! That ran from 2004 to 2008 and infidelity was a continual topic of the show. At one point he shared his disappointment with Boeing’s decision to fire an executive because of an extra-marital affair. He said quote: “If you really did a poll, I would bet you most of the powerful men running companies are having affairs.” Lovely!! It’s surprising how Mike Pence would affiliate himself with a man like this. Reason 5: Trump’s Philanthropy or Lack Thereof… Trump has continually boasted about his charitable givings. He has often tied his charity pledges to new products coming on the market. In 1988 when his book The Art of the Deal came out he promised a portion of the proceeds would go to fight homelessness, for Vietnam Veterans, AIDS and Multiple Sclerosis. Based on the success of the book those types of charities should have ended up with several million dollars. However, the truth is that he gave $101K dollars to veterans organizations, $26K dollars to fight homelessness, less than $13K dollars for AIDS charities and only $4K dollars to multiple-sclerosis research. All the other donations went to charities related to Trump’s life including his high school and college. The School of American Ballet, where Ivanka Trump studied and a private school that educated Trump’s son Eric both got more than the AIDS and multiple sclerosis contributions combined. For a billionaire,

Donald Trump: The Nostradamus Prophecy
Nostradamus is just one of many prophets who use allegorical poetry to provide vague descriptions of things to come. Since the beginning of mankind people have believed some of us hold incredible powers to prophetically see into the future. Some people are using those prophecies to point at Donald Trump and hold him up as a beacon of light while others are calling him the bringer of doom. Let’s explore some of these prophecies and stick around to the end of the video to find out how you can enter the Superman vs Batman Contest where we’re giving away amazing prizes. Prophecy is the basis of many of our core religious beliefs. We are in the end just scared mammals frightened of the dark. So when someone comes forward claiming they can see past the present and into the future many of us fall to our knees for guidance. It is then up to the reader to interpret and connect the historical relevance to what is written. For example some people are pointing to Nostradamus’s Century 5, Quatrain 19 and saying it refers specifically to Donald Trump. Let me read it to you: The great Royal one of gold, augmented by brass, The agreement broken, war opened by a young man: People afflicted because of a lamented chief, The land will be covered with barbarian blood. Do you see how vague this is. The use of the word “gold” is what’s got everyone pointing to it because it’s a well known fact Trump likes to use gold to emblazon his name and interior elements of his buildings with that color. But let’s breakdown the rest of the quatrain. “augmented by brass” well if Donald Trump becomes president he will most likely fill his cabinet with experienced war veterans. So he will be augmented by brass. Now when it says “The agreement broken” Sure very easy connection here because it’s well known that Trump wishes to dissolve the TPP and other trade negotiations with countries like China. But when Nostradamus writes “war opened by a young man” followed by “People afflicted because of a lamented chief” is he saying someone is going to try to assassinate Trump and in so doing the people of America will become ill? And then the final part “The land will be covered with barbarian blood.” Our land? America? Or is he talking about Europe and the refugee crisis. Let’s start with “The great Royal one of gold, augmented by brass”. This can easily be interpreted as Tunisia’s ruling dictator and his family prior to the uprising along with his security forces. Ben Ali and his family were accused of plundering the country’s money. The First Lady was described as an “unabashed shopaholic” who used the state airplanes to make frequent unofficial trips to Europe’s fashion capitals. “The agreement broken, war opened by a young man” well the catalyst for the escalation of protests in Tunisia was the death of a young fruit seller who had his stand confiscated by a municipal inspector for no apparent reason. The young man doused himself with gasoline and set himself afire thus starting the Tunisian Revolution, which eventually spread and turned into the Arab Spring and brings us to the next part of the Quatrain “People afflicted because of a lamented chief.” That certainly sounds like what happened In Egypt when Hosni Mubarak was forced to resign ending his 30-year presidency and violent protests continued to the end of 2011. Finally, Nostradamus writes “The land will be covered with barbarian blood.” Everything that has happened since the Arab Spring falls into this line. The rise of ISIS, the fall of Syria, the murder and imprisonment of civilians throughout all Arab countries affected by the uprising. So you see prophecies like these are so vague they can fit nearly every major world event. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t cause for concern when it comes to Donald Trump. For many, Donald Trump represents the voice of an angry middle class figh

Donald Trump: History of Smear Attacks on Presidential Wives
The national news media would have you believe this is the worst political bashing of candidate wives in the history of American politics. But that simply isn’t the case. I took a look at past campaigns throughout this nation’s history and what I found may shock you. In the last 96 years since women won the right to vote, each presidential candidate’s wife has had to learn the trials of being visibly active on the campaign trail. It has never been an easy role to fill. As a public figure caught between society’s conflicting notions of what a potential president’s wife and her role in the white house should be. Smearing of presidential candidate’s wives is almost as old as America itself. In fact the first documented bashing starts with Dolly Madison in 1808. Federalist candidate Charles C. Pinckney circulated the rumor that James Madison made his wife sexually available to Thomas Jefferson in order to gain his endorsement essentially making her a political whore. It didn’t stop there. She was also bashed for her lavish spending and comments were made about the size of her breasts during the campaign. The election of 1828 will go down in history as among the ugliest mudslinging that focused on a candidate’s family. Andrew Jackson’s wife, Rachel became the center of controversy when it was learned she hadn’t officially been divorced from her first husband when she married Jackson in 1791. For this she faced daily assaults in newspapers supportive of the rival party, accused of bigamy and ridiculed for being fat and uneducated. The assaults took a terrible toll on her and she died of heart failure soon after the election and just before Jackson was sworn into office. Jackson’s mother was also in the crosshairs of incumbent John Quincy Adams who called her a common prostitute brought to the country by British soldiers. Things didn’t get much better by 1886 when Frances Cleveland married to then president Grover Cleveland had to issue an unprecedented public denial due to vicious rumors that she was cheating on him and that he beat her. This marked the first time in history a president’s wife had to publicly address rumors of her private life. Ten years later, in 1896, opponents of William McKinley had a smear campaign against his wife claiming she was mentally ill and confined to an institution. Sadly, Ida McKinley actually had epilepsy and during fits in public William would drape a handkerchief over her head to conceal the seizure and calm her down. In order to quell the rumors the campaign issued a biography of Ida that said she suffered from a nervous condition. Personal attacks like these continued into modern day with Dwight D. Eisenhower’s wife Mamie slandered for appearing to always be drunk a condition that was misinterpreted due to her inner ear problem. Betty Ford’s substance abuse was fodder for President Gerald Ford’s rivals and Vice President Nelson Rockefeller’s second wife Happy Rockefeller was accused of adultery due to an immediate marriage to one another after both divorced their first spouses. Kitty Dukakis the wife of democratic candidate Michael Dukakis was practically destroyed during her husband’s bid for the white house. She was accused of taking part in radical activities including flag burning and being an alcoholic. The second of which was true and revealed in her memoir where she also stated she’d undergone electroconvulsive therapy in order to treat major depression due to her husband’s defeat in the campaign for the white house. Even Cindy McCain the wife of John McCain was the target of a smear campaign that painted her as an addict. George W. Bush’s team invented a rumor that McCain’s adopted daughter was in fact his illegitimate black child out of wedlock. This lie sold incredibly well during the South Carolina primary to which McCain lost to Bush. So when you see the

Syfy: Childhood’s End
Arthur C. Clarke’s 1953 science fiction novel Childhood’s End has finally been adapted into a television series, which aired the second week of December last year. Arthur C. Clarke’s idea for the book began with his short story Guardian Angel published in 1946, which later became the first part of Childhood’s End. Published in 1953, the first printing sold out extremely quickly due to several good reviews and put Clarke on the map as a well respected science fiction author. Though the book is often regarded by both readers and critics as Clarke’s best novel. In the 1960s, director Stanley Kubrick was interested in making a film adaptation of the novel, but another director had already optioned it. So instead, Kubrick collaborated with Arthur C. Clarke on adapting the short story The Sentinel into what eventually became the critically acclaimed 2001: A Space Odyssey. The next scene brings us back to present day 2016 and a fleet of massive alien spaceships have appeared in the skies. Mankind dubs the aliens ‘the Overlords’ and they speak through a chosen emissary, a farmer named Ricky Stormgren played by Mike Vogel of Under the Dome fame. He only has contact with one of the aliens, the ‘Supervisor for Earth’ named Karellen, played by Charles Dance better known as Tywin Lannister on Games of Thrones, who hides himself away not allowing anyone to see what the alien race actually looks like. The Overlords proceed to eliminate disease, war, hunger, and pollution, bringing on the Golden Age of Humanity but it takes another 15 years before they are ready to reveal to the world what they look like. Now I hadn’t read the book so I was really in for a shocker when Karellen came down the stairs hand in hand with two small children emissaries and it was revealed that he looked like the devil. And boy the computer graphics on this thing was amazing. The next night’s episode fast forwards to 2035 and life on Earth is blissful. Slowly though we see that not everything is as it should be. There have been a scattering of children with high cognitive skills and Peretta Jones played by Yael Stone of Orange is the New Black, tries to counsel one of the children. There’s a lot of science fiction mixed with spirituality which is great but I’m not going to try to explain it in this review instead just go with the idea that a new higher species of man evolves and brings forth the apocalypse. And let me just say it was so refreshing to see an apocalypse that yes we caused but more in our reluctance to ask questions than via mutual thermonuclear destruction. The final night of the series jumps forward four years and we see the evolved human now able to communicate with all the other children. Karellen announces to the world that all of the children will be gathered together, that no more children will be born, and that the adults are free to live out their lives as they wish. The children begin to float up into the sky, which was slightly hoaky but impactful. Milo, the guy from the first scene, stows away on an Overlord ship and is transported to their homeworld where he witnesses a being of vast cosmic intelligence. Milo is shown the true meaning of the universe and returns to Earth to witness the moment the children join the intelligence, which unfortunately is the same moment the Earth is destroyed. He offers to transmit a report to Karellen of the final moments and asks Karellen in return to leave behind some memento of Earth’s culture, and Karellen obliges. And that’s it. The end. No long running series. No sequel. Just a great story told over three nights. Believe me I wish Hollywood was more willing to make these types of short lived shows. Good storytelling doesn’t have to require multiple seasons or sequels. If you haven’t seen this show yet you really need too. I’m giving this a solid A. Yes, it totally leaves you with a sense of hopelessness but that we are here as a great part of the la

Daniel Radcliffe: Horns
Somewhere at the bottom of your netflix cue is probably a little movie starring Daniel Radcliffe and Max Minghella called Horns. I’m gonna tell you if you should move that up to the front of your cue and watch it this weekend. Oh and I promise absolutely no spoilers with this one. Enjoy! Wikipedia describes Horns as an American dark fantasy horror film and I’m not sure I completely agree with that. I’d call it a dark spiritual crime drama? Truth is, it’s a hot mess. Not necessarily and mess though. When you think the movie is going in one direction it quickly turns a corner and goes in another. The film is loosely based on Joe Hill’s novel Horns and directed by Alexandre Aja. I never read Horns so I don’t have anything to compare it too and honestly I don’t have any movie to compare this too either. Hollywood pitches are notorious for combining movies together to give an example of what the movie is going to be like. So maybe this is Black Dahlia and Fantastic Four meets The Seventh Sign and Stand By Me? It’s a weird movie. Here’s the premise, Daniel Radcliffe stars as Ig, who becomes the prime suspect when his girlfriend Merrin is raped and murdered. Despite his declarations of innocence, he is shunned by the community, and only his childhood friend and lawyer Lee seems to believe him. He hides away from the press by staying with his parents and brother Terry. After drinking heavily Ig wakes up the day after a vigil for Merrin with a pair of horns protruding from his head. The horns make people tell Ig their darkest secrets and desires. Some hilarity ensues but it’s more of an entertaining chuckle than a full on laugh out loud kind of thing. Ig starts to use the power of the horns to prove his innocence by getting people to tell him the truth. He gains additional powers like being able to touch someone’s skin and see what they saw and the ability to attract every snake in the town. I don’t know if you’d call that a power but it helps move the story along. And that’s about as far as I’m going to go into explaining the storyline because from their the crazy train that is this movie really jumps the third rail and goes from being a lighthearted whodunit to a weirdly spiritual pseudo religious bible belt movie. And I got it and I liked it but I think if Alexandre Aja had pushed it any further I would have felt I’d been tricked into watching a Christian based movie. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Just that I like knowing what I’m getting myself into before hand. I think someone who’s a little more into religion will like the ending better and someone who’s really outside of religion or even offended by it should probably stay away from this movie. Overall I liked this movie. I think the acting was excellent. There are a lot of really great cameos and Radcliffe and Minghella do a great job. It’s just not a movie for everyone and I think that’s probably why it’s not at the top of your Netflix list. I know I give a lot of B+ in my reviews but to me a B is average and so many things that I watch tend to be slightly above average. If I gave everything an A rating then it wouldn’t mean anything when I said you absolutely must see a film or something like that. So Horns B+. If you’re home and it’s a rainy day and you’ve got some time to kill, watch it. It’s good.

Broadway: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
Every once in awhile a show comes along that is so different from the recycled movie scripts taking up the majority of Broadway theater today you feel compelled to tell everyone you know about it. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is just that type of production. Here’s my review and why I suggest you run to see it before it closes in September. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is a play adapted from the book by Mark Haddon. The story surrounds an autistic boy his neighbor’s dead dog and the relationship he has with his parents and school mentor. The play started in London’s West End and quickly came to Broadway at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre in 2014. It won the 2015 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play, 2015 Outer Critics Circle Award Outstanding New Broadway Play, the 2015 Drama League Award for Outstanding Production of a Broadway or Off-Broadway Play, and the 2015 Tony Award for Best Play. I don’t feel it’s fair for me to detail the play’s plot as it’s nearly impossible to do so without giving away some spoilers. Instead, I’ll tell you that this play is so wonderful that I saw twice in the same month. First, my mother’s husband took her and I to the show with second row tickets, which for true theatre goers you know can be both a blessing and a curse. Being that close to the action immediately bonds you to the events happening on stage. A good play becomes a great play and a bad play becomes the worst night of your life. The set design of this show includes complex LED displays on all three sides of the theater as well as the floor. Sitting in the front you lose the floor display making front-center mezzanine the best seats in the house. Seeing the play twice so close together meant I had the opportunity to explore the same actor’s ability and depth of performance. Christopher Boone the lead character was played by Tyler Lea making his Broadway debut after graduating from the University of North Carolina School of the Arts and doing a stint in Cygnet’s Shakespeare’s R+J. I actually had to do a little research into what Cygnet’s Shakespeare’s R+J meant because the way it was written in the playbill made it seem as though there was a minor character named Cygnet in Romeo and Juliet and I knew that wasn’t right. What I found was that Cygnet is the production house and Shakespeare’s R+J was a 1997 off Broadway play whereby all the characters from Romeo and Juliet are played by men. To say that Tyler Lea’s performance in the lead role was good is an understatement. In fact he’s mesmerizing. To play this type of character so early in an actor’s career is a stunning accomplishment and reminds me of a young Daniel-Day Lewis in the movie My Left Foot. What’s truly fascinating about both the script and stage direction is it requires the lead to not only become the character and know his lines but it’s so specific on where and what he’s doing on stage and it becomes as important to the storytelling as the interaction and dialogue between the characters. You’re probably thinking that’s the case for every show on Broadway and really every play that’s out there in the world. And yet something’s very different with this play, again I don’t want to give any spoilers out but Christopher needs to complete something he’s been working on throughout the first act in order for the show to move forward. That just shows how truly talented this actor is. Another fun aspect of the show is that it’s a play-within-a-play and the fourth wall gets broken at times. This does a great job at keeping the modern distracted audience engaged. There are even elements outside the stage that interact with the audience; particularly if you’re sitting in a prime number seat. Unfortunately, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time has run it’s course on Broadway. Though I’m not sure i

Donald Trump: Resuscitating Hitler and American Fascism
Welcome friends to The Johno Show today we are going to discuss the quick rise of Fascism in America. So grow out your Adolf Hitler little mustaches and practice saying Sieg Heil America!! “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!” That is what it reads at the base of The Statue of Liberty given to us by France. It’s what this country was founded on and it’s exactly what the terrorists are trying to destroy. Fear has gotten the best of us. I wish I could stand here and say “I knew it…I knew those Republicans were all fascists.” Unfortunately, stupid is as stupid does and fear crosses all political boundaries in America today as Mayor David Bowers, a Democrat, from Roanoke Virginia invoked the Japanese internment camps set up by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt as a good idea we should possibly rethink in terms of Syrian Refugees. Bowers said “I’m reminded that President Franklin D. Roosevelt felt compelled to sequester Japanese foreign nationals after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, and it appears that the threat of harm to America from Isis now is just as real and serious as that from our enemies then.” What America did to Japanese-Americans was not sequester. It was internment. And again we can pause to go back to the dictionary and see where Interment is defined as the imprisonment or confinement of people, commonly in large groups, without trial. In fact, Collins English dictionary adds that the term is especially used for the confinement “of enemy citizens in wartime or of terrorism suspects”. Of course we don’t want to think about the fact Guantanamo fits that description perfectly. Let’s just ignore that little piece of American history taking place as I speak. On April 18, 1975, less than two weeks before the fall of Saigon, President Ford authorized the entry of 130,000 refugees 125,000 of whom were Vietnamese. Now full disclosure my partner and his family was one of those refugees. So this story holds very tight in my heart. California Gov. Jerry Brown was so insistent on not having Vietnamese refugees in his state he sent his staff to the airport to try to stop the planes from landing on Californian soil. Now of course Governor Brown is a little older and a little wiser saying California would help accept Syrian refugees. As shocking as this may seem Brown was in fact reflecting on American sentiment at the time. A gallop poll was conducted in May 1975 that asked, if Americans were opposed to admitting Vietnamese Refugees into the United States 54% said they were opposed 36% were in favor of allowing Vietnamese refugees into the country and 12% were undecided. A year later, after the events of Kristallnacht, in which more than 15,000 Jews were expelled from Germany and sent to concentration camps, a survey conducted by the American Institute of Public Opinion found that more than 60% of Americans were opposed to accepting Jewish refugee children, who were the most in need of asylum. In fact Laura Delano, cousin to FDR, was quoted as saying “Twenty thousand charming children would all too soon grow into 20,000 ugly adults,” However a year later, America passed legislation to accept Christian refugees from England while leaving Jewish refugees to the mercy of the Nazi regime. So you see Fascism isn’t on the rise in America. It’s just always been right there under our skin the whole time and all we needed was a little prick reminding us that those people over there are the bad people that we don’t want in this country and sure enough those in power close the doors to the huddled masses yearning to breathe free.

Donald Trump: Not My President
I am furious with these anti-Trump protesters. Especially, those causing monetary damage to buildings and shops. The police should actively be carting these people away and throwing them in jail. In Oregon the police declared these protests are in fact riots which is a class C felony in that state. Anyone caught in the act could serve a maximum potential prison term of five years with a potential fine of up to $125,000. That’s exactly what each of these hoodlums deserve.

Donald Trump: President
I woke up this morning and started reading my Facebook news feed. It was filled with emotional outcries and bewilderment that Donald Trump is our next President. Many of you are shocked at how this could have happened. So I’m gonna take a second to explain it to you. If you are someone who is shocked by the results I’m guessing you live on the coast. That is to say you live in a state that borders the Atlantic or the Pacific. It is also to say that you have never held a manufacturing job. You can most likely look out your window and see your neighbor’s house if not their apartment building. It’s also to say that when you walk down the street to go to Starbucks you most likely pass either a Muslim, an African American, a Latino or a homosexual. If you live in a big city you probably passed all of those people.

Hillary Clinton: Comey Hits with October Surprise
FBI Director James Comey Hits Hillary Clinton with October Surprise for this election and it involves her closest assistant Huma Abedin. Hello World and Welcome to The Johno Show Live I’m your host Jonathan and this is the news today. James Comey went public with letter to Congress stating emails had been found on Anthony Weiner’s laptop between Huma Abedin and Hillary Clinton. FBI was reviewing the Underaged sexting investigating anthony weiner. 650K emails between Abedin and Clinton. They don’t know what’s in the emails. Comey says “Pertinent” but not necessarily Daming! Comey should provide more details instead of a vague letter. Did Comey Do This Maliciously? Harry Reid - accused Comey of violating the Hatch Act, which prohibits employees of the executive branch from engaging in political activity. Harry Reid - says Comey has knowledge of Trump’s relationship with Russia and that he believes the FBI possesses “explosive information about close ties and coordination between Donald Trump, his top advisors, and the Russian government,” although Reid offered no proof. Let’s talk about Huma Abedin for a second. If you haven’t watched my video specifically about her I’ll provide the link in the description below. https://youtu.be/j9Dlre8Vjqk Huma Abedin was born in Kalamazoo, Michigan, in 1976 but moved with her parents to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia at the age of 2 and only returned to the U.S. at age 18 to study at George Washington University. While there Abedin became an intern at the White House at age 19, where she was assigned to then-First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton. Huma's mother is a sociologist known for her strong advocacy of Sharia Law. She’s a known member of the Muslim Sisterhood, a division for women of the Muslim Brotherhood. She is a board member of the International Islamic Council for Dawa and Relief, which the U.S. government has formally designated as a pro-Hamas international terrorist organization. Huma’s late father has even more direct ties to terrorist organizations as he was recruited to work for the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs, by Abdullah Omar Naseef, who was the secretary-general of the Muslim World League, which is the Muslim Brotherhood’s principal vehicle for the international propagation of Islamic supremacist ideology. Naseef also held close ties to Osama bin Laden and Al-Qaeda. Huma herself was employed from 1996 to 2008 by the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs as the assistant editor of its in-house publication. Huma’s mother took over for her father running the institute and became the editor of its journal. A position she still holds today with Huma’s brother holding the title of book-review editor and her sister employed as assistant editor. It’s like a whole family affair. Of course none of these factors stopped then Secretary Clinton from meeting Huma’s mother personally while on a trip to the Saudi Kingdom. 21 Million early votes have already been cast. At the end of the day regardless of what is found in these emails the level of stupidity for both Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin to send and receive emails on an unsecure laptop that - KEEP IN MIND - may also have child pornography on it is incomprehensible. It’s like returning a public library book where you wrote in the margins you were going to kill someone. If emails were printed paper I’m surprised we haven’t found thousands of them in a public toilet somewhere. What do you think? Was Comey right in releasing that vague letter or was it politically motivated? Do you think Comey has something on Donald Trumps relationship with Russia?

Disapproval has Voters Seeking Libertarians
As Donald Trump continues his xenophobic speeches, Republicans are desperate to hold onto the Senate and House. The same fear is reverberating through the Democratic party as displeasure with Hillary Clinton’s emails is having an effect on lower races. American’s aren’t happy with their lack of choice. Many are deciding to forgo their automatic acceptance of the incumbent candidate and look to alternatives for all lower races. One such race is taking place in New Jersey's 8th congressional district. Albio Sires the Democratic incumbent is up against both a Republican and Libertarian. Sires has been in office for 10 years but his name recognition is low. This is due to his district having a disproportionately high number of rental properties. Many renters tend to move within a couple of years requiring even Sires to re-introduce himself to his constituents. This has given his opponents an unforeseen advantage in this year’s campaign. I recently spoke with Dan Delaney the Libertarian running against Sires. Here is that interview:

Am I Libertarian
The Republicans and Democrats have made it impossible for me to vote for either of their candidates. Hillary Clinton is a criminal and Donald Trump at best is an idiot and at worst a spy for Russia; in my humble opinion. I believe both candidates could do significant damage to this country. Whether it be presidential elections, city, state, or some ridiculous mid-season ballot initiative I’ve never not voted. And I’m certainly not sitting out this seasons disaster. So where does that leave me. It caused me to take a long hard look at what I personally believe in as an individual barring any outside influence from friends, the media, special interests or celebrities; who try to convince me that I must vote for one of the two major political parties.

Hillary Clinton’s husband, Bill Clinton our 42nd President of the United States did a lot of great things during his time in office. He provided health coverage for millions of children, ordered U.S. military intervention in the Bosnia and Kosovo wars, and even participated in a Camp David Summit for the advancement in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. A subject our current president Barack Obama hasn’t even touched. But he made a lot of mistakes as President, as a husband and as an employer.

Hillary Clinton: Huma Abedin
Huma Abedin was born in Kalamazoo, Michigan, in 1976 but moved with her parents to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia at the age of 2 and only returned to the U.S. at age 18 to study at George Washington University. While there Abedin became an intern at the White House at age 19, where she was assigned to then-First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton. Huma's mother is a sociologist known for her strong advocacy of Sharia Law. She’s a known member of the Muslim Sisterhood, a division for women of the Muslim Brotherhood. She is a board member of the International Islamic Council for Dawa and Relief, which the U.S. government has formally designated as a pro-Hamas international terrorist organization. Huma’s late father has even more direct ties to terrorist organizations as he was recruited to work for the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs, by Abdullah Omar Naseef, who was the secretary-general of the Muslim World League, which is the Muslim Brotherhood’s principal vehicle for the international propagation of Islamic supremacist ideology. Naseef also held close ties to Osama bin Laden and Al-Qaeda. Huma herself was employed from 1996 to 2008 by the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs as the assistant editor of its in-house publication. Huma’s mother took over for her father running the institute and became the editor of its journal. A position she still holds today with Huma’s brother holding the title of book-review editor and her sister employed as assistant editor. It’s like a whole family affair. Of course none of these factors stopped then Secretary Clinton from meeting Huma’s mother personally while on a trip to the Saudi Kingdom. Huma has been a long-time aide and trusted advisor to Hillary Clinton. Even before she starting servicing as vice chairwoman of Clinton's 2016 Presidential campaign she was traveling chief of staff and served as direct assistant to Hillary Clinton during Clinton's campaign in 2008. She then served as U.S. Secretary of State Clinton's Deputy Chief of Staff in the State Department getting a "special government employee" arrangement at $62 and hour, that allowed her to work as an outside consultant for Teneo for $105K dollars for seven months work plus as a paid consultant to the Clinton Foundation to help plan for Hillary’s post-State philanthropic activities. And she remained Hillary Clinton’s personal assistant. All for total of $355K for that year. Not bad for a federal employee. Huma Abedin was married to Anthony Weiner on July 10th 2010. Anthony Weiner is the disgraced former congressman who thought it was a good idea to run for mayor of New York City in 2013 despite not having stopped his sex addict behavior of taking photos of himself naked and sending them to women on the Internet. This second round of embarrassment is what makes up the amazing documentary in theaters now, appropriately titled “Weiner” during which audience members get an inside look into a downward spiraling campaign as new revelations of five-time a day phone sex sessions with a woman other than Weiner’s wife are revealed. This documentary is right up there with some of the best political intrigue films. Weiner is Shakespeare’s Coriolanus. Huma even says at one point in the documentary “It’s like I’m living a nightmare”. And here is where I have my biggest issue with Hillary leading this country and Huma not two steps behind. Despite what they may personally feel their marriages are, they are both textbook victims of spousal abuse. How are we as a nation supposed to put our trust in these two battered women and expect them to go toe-to-toe with men like Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong Un, and Bashar al-Assad? When they couldn’t even kick their own husbands to the curb for violating their sacred marriage vows.

Hillary Clinton: Gays
The biggest crime the Clinton’s ever pulled off was convincing minorities that they had their support. Today we’re gonna take a look at how the gay community rallies to defend the Clinton’s and yet historically the Clinton’s have been the cause of major setbacks for that community. And I have a big surprise for you at the end of this video. So stay tuned and Enjoy! You’re probably thinking right now; is he really going to bash Hillary Clinton on gay rights. After all she’s a democrat and democrats notoriously support the gay community. Well actually, that’s a complete misnomer.The democrats have become incredibly proficient at pandering to select segmentations of the American audience. They say their pro-gay, pro-choice, increased education and employment in urban areas only after public opinion has moved voters in that direction. Don’t get me wrong; I’m not saying the Republicans are good for the gay community. I’m not an idiot. Right now the Republican party is being held hostage by hateful right wing homophobic evangelicals who force their agenda into the primaries leading to forced acceptance by anyone running for Republican office to their right wing nutso-facto agenda. The Clinton’s however dress themselves up as pro-gay only when it suits them and then begrudgingly. Had Hillary Clinton won against Barack Obama we would not have gay marriage today. In fact I suspect Hillary would have aligned her LGBT stance to be more in line with a moderate Republican than the left leaning legacy Obama is leaving us with today. Need a reminder on what the Clinton’s did against the gay community? Let’s start with DOMA, the Defense of Marriage Act, which Hillary Clinton actively supported and was passed by her husband President Bill Clinton in 1996. That law barred federal recognition of same-sex marriage. Now today, both Bill and Hillary swear their decision to support this horrendous piece of legislation was to stem the tide of something far worse coming down the path. That “something worse” according to the Clinton’s was an attempt by the republican’s to amend the constitution to prevent gay marriage. Unfortunately, the timeline doesn’t work in their favor. Both Elizabeth Birch the executive director of the Human Rights Campaign from 1995 to 2004 and Evan Wolfson, founder and president of the Freedom to Marry organization both confirmed there was no threat in the immediate vicinity of 1996 for a constitutional amendment focused on gay marriage. That came four years after DOMA was already enacted. The truth is the day after DOMA cleared the House, White House press secretary Mike McCurry said President Bill Clinton believed that the underlying position in the bill was right. Only now are they backpedaling because history didn’t wind up on their side. Next up, Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. Remember that one. Yeah that was under the Clinton administration too. Signed on February 28th, 1994 Don’t Ask Don’t Tell saw the military discharge over 13,000 troops prior to its repeal by President Obama in 2011. And that doesn’t even begin to count the number of potential new recruits who saw what was happening and decided the military wasn’t for them. November 2002 when Chris Matthew’s asked then New York State Senator Hillary Clinton point blank “Do you think New York state should recognize gay marriage? And she gave a one word response. “No”. July 2004 speaking again as Senator from New York Mrs. Clinton said: “I believe that marriage is not just a bond but a sacred bond between a man and woman. I have had occasion in my life to defend marriage. To stand up for marriage.” Of course this comment is in reference to Bill’s infidelity with Monica Lewinski and God knows how many other women. Even when public opinion was clearly changing in 2010 when she was Secretary of State, she said “The issue of same sex marriage is a matter left to each state.

Hillary Clinton: Email
We are just days away from the FBI announcing if they will indict Hillary Clinton for hosting an email server in her home, deleting over 30K emails and wiping the server clean. Hillary Rodham Clinton is so well protected in Washington no one is going to convict her of any crimes. This is an issue of ethics. Hillary Clinton kept a separate email server at her house setup by a former state department aide. Who has been granted immunity provided he speak freely with the FBI. The FBI is reviewing if she retained classified materials on her personal email account. If so, then she violated the same statute General Petriuas has already pleaded guilty to. It’s a misdemeanor - it’s not a felony - there’s no grand jury there’s no trial jury. However, the punishment is up to a year in jail and a $100K fine Per Document!! An initial investigation there are approximately 22 highly classified documents found on that private server. So classified in fact that the FBI legal team reviewing the case isn’t even allowed to read them. Clinton’s defense is that those documents weren’t marked classified prior to the investigation. However, they couldn’t have be marked classified, because by not using government servers she actually prevented the government from reviewing those emails. What she isn’t telling the American public is that as secretary of state she held the same level of clearance as the president, the secretary of defense and the head of the CIA. She holds original classification authority which means she’s the person who at the highest level can mark something classified. So of course there wasn’t an email marked classified on the server - it was her job to do that!! There are four sections of the law the FBI is reviewing in this case. First, the Federal Records Act requires agencies hold onto official communications, including all work-related emails. Government employees cannot destroy or remove relevant records. The Federal Records Act of 1950 provides the legal framework for federal records management, including record creation, maintenance, and disposal. Federal agencies are required to establish an ongoing program for records management and to cooperate with the National Archives and Records Administration. An amendment signed in 2014 by President Obama, with bipartisan support, modernized the Federal Records Act expanding the definition of federal records to include electronic records. The act grants The National Archivist as the final decision makers on what constitutes a Federal record. It also clarified the responsibilities of federal government officials when using non-government email systems and empowered the National Archives to safeguard original and classified records from unauthorized removal. This case also questions if the email server represents a blatant circumvention around the freedom of information act as it is designed to improve public access to agency records and information. By Mrs. Clinton deleting 30K emails she may have already violated this act. The deletion of emails may also go against The National Archives and Records Administration’s regulations, which stresses that materials must be maintained "by the agency," that they should be "readily found" and that the records must "make possible a proper scrutiny by the Congress." Federal law does allow government officials to use personal email so long as relevant documents are preserved for history. The FBI will also be looking at Section 1924 and 798 from Title 18 of the U.S. Crimes and Criminal Procedure Code, which focuses on the deletion and retention of classified documents. "Knowingly" removing or housing classified information at an "unauthorized location" is subject to prosecution as a Class A misdemeanor federal crime under section 1924 and a class A felony under section 798.

Hillary Clinton: Benghazi
This week in the Clinton Lies series we take a look at Hillary Clinton and her disastrous time as Secretary of State under the Obama administration and her involvement or denial thereof in the Benghazi attacks. On September 11, 2012 Islamic terrorists attacked the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, killing U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and U.S. Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith along with CIA contractors Tyrone S. Woods and Glen Doherty at a CIA compound hours after Stevens was killed. It’s important to note that Stevens was the first U.S. Ambassador killed in the line of duty since 1979. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would have Americans believe this terrorist attack was a complete surprise to her. In fact, Clinton was the first person in the Obama administration to attempt to falsely tie an anti-muslim YouTube video, called Innocence of Muslims, to the Benghazi attacks despite what we now know were internal conversations at the white house to not tie those two things together. She made an initial statement which MSNBC posted at 10:32pm that day and moments later at 11:12pm she sent her daughter, Chelsea Clinton an email saying officers were killed in Benghazi by an al Qaeda-like group. The day after the attacks Clinton sent an email to the Egyptian prime minister writing quote "we know the attack in Libya had nothing to do with the film. It was a planned attack, not a protest." But the outward lie to the American people continued for days, using the video as the scapegoat for the attacks. The truth is U.S. security officer Eric Nordstrom twice requested additional security for the mission in Benghazi from the State Department. He went so far as to send a chronological listing of over 200 security incidents including militia gunfights and bomb attacks dating from June 2011 to July 2012. 48 of those incidents were directly located in Benghazi. Let’s just highlight some of those attacks. In April 2012 an IED was thrown at a convoy carrying the United Nations Special Envoy to Libya. No one was injured in that attack. In May 2012, an Al-Qaeda affiliate claimed responsibility for an attack on the International Red Cross office in Benghazi. Resulting in the International Red Cross suspending all operations in Benghazi saying they were "appalled" by the attack and "extremely concerned" about escalating violence in Libya. On June 10 the British ambassador to Libya survived an assassination attempt in Benghazi. The British Foreign Office immediately withdrew all consular staff from Benghazi. These weren’t just angry people ranting in the streets as Americans were initially lead to believe. These were coordinated efforts of terror. And what happened to Mr. Nordstrom’s requests? They were ignored by State Department official Charlene Lamb who is quoted as saying she wanted to keep the security presence in Benghazi "artificially low." In her January 2013 testimony before Congress, Secretary Clinton claimed security decisions at the Benghazi compound had been made by others, stating quote: "The specific security requests pertaining to Benghazi were handled by the security professionals in the State Department. She says quote “I didn't see those requests, I didn't approve them, I didn't deny them.” Do you remember back when Hillary Clinton was running against Obama and her campaign produced that 3AM advertisement? Well I certainly don’t want someone who responds with “I didn't see those requests, I didn't approve them, I didn't deny them.” What a great way of wiping your hands clean with the blood of innocents. Ok, you didn’t see those requests but do you pick up a newspaper? Do you watch CNN? Cause you can’t tell me that when the International Red Cross and the British pulled out of Libya that you were completely unaware that stuff was getting real in Benghazi.

You’ve probably concluded that I’m a left leaning liberal dead set on making sure none of these Republican nut jobs get into the White House. But you’d only be half right. Yes, it’s true. None of the Republican candidates would be good for America but guess what...neither would any of the democrats.
