In response to testimony, police raided Byron Sonne’s old home in Forest Hills in Toronto. Turns out he buried an explosive device in his garden and the cops dug it up to detonate it according to this article in the Star.
From TheStar here:
Police have removed and are preparing to detonate what they say is explosive material from the backyard of the former Forest Hill home of Byron Sonne, the so-called “G20 geek,” nearly two years after his arrest for allegedly possessing explosive materials.
The material, which was located in the backyard of the residence, was placed in a specially designed container called a hopper.
Evidence presented in court during the case’s closing arguments included reference to a magazine — which is used to store ammunition — being buried in Sonne’s backyard.
Responding to those claims, Toronto police officers, the explosive disposal unit and firefighters descended on the Bathurst and Eglinton area home Sonne formerly shared with his now estranged wife Wednesday.
Late in the afternoon, police said they had found what they were looking for.
When police searched the home on Elderwood Dr. in 2010, they discovered an amateur laboratory and workshop in the basement and stores of various materials in marked jars – including chemical fertilizers and potential ingredients for rocket fuel.
Sonne admitted to having materials that could be made into an explosive, but said he hadn’t combined them and had not intended to.
That house was owned by Sonne’s exwife’s parents. I’m sure they were surprised when the cops showed up again to go spelunking through the garden to unearth explosives. Sonne’s trial just wrapped up last Friday and the verdict is due in weeks. I wonder how this new raid will affect the outcome of the trial?

President Obama blasted the Supreme Court yesterday, defying them to strike down Obamacare. He accused them of being an “unelected body” and said that overturning Obamacare would be “judicial activism,” and an “unprecedented act.” Never mind that the courts have been overturning unconstitutional laws for over 200 years. So the 5th circuit court of appeals, as a giant middle finger to Obama, assigned Federal lawyers, arguing for a separate Obamacare lawsuit, to write a 3 page single spaced letter to either affirm or deny that the United States Courts still have the power of judicial review. Wow.
From a scathing CBS here:
a federal appeals court apparently is calling the president’s bluff — ordering the Justice Department to answer by Thursday whether the Obama Administration believes that the courts have the right to strike down a federal law, according to a lawyer who was in the courtroom.
The order, by a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit, appears to be in direct response to the president’s comments yesterday about the Supreme Court’s review of the health care law. Mr. Obama all but threw down the gauntlet with the justices, saying he was “confident” the Court would not “take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress.”
Overturning a law of course would not be unprecedented — since the Supreme Court since 1803 has asserted the power to strike down laws it interprets as unconstitutional. The three-judge appellate court appears to be asking the administration to admit that basic premise — despite the president’s remarks that implied the contrary. The panel ordered the Justice Department to submit a three-page, single-spaced letter by noon Thursday addressing whether the Executive Branch believes courts have such power.
Unbelievable! The President and the DOJ are not above the law, and the courts are going to get it in writing. And while it is awe-inspiring to see judges going to the mat over the Constitution, it is equally appalling to see Obama and his legal toadies trying to sidestep that same document.

Just outside of Luray, Virginia we stumbled across this collection of black Appalachian doll babies in a Quilt Shop. They were handcrafted, individually named, and sitting atop a cabinet of quilted pillow cases.
Chelsea Clinton is certainly responding to dog whistles. The desire to keep up the attacks against conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh has Chelsea saying that Rush once referred to her as a dog based on her looks. But does Chelsea seriously think she’s some kind of beauty queen?
From the DailyMail here:
Chelsea Clinton has told how Rush Limbaugh made fun of her looks when she was 13 years old by comparing her to a dog.
The 32-year-old said she identified with Georgetown University student Sandra Fluke, who was branded a ‘slut’ and a ‘prostitute’ by the controversial talk show host, during a panel about women in politics last week. ‘She and I actually have something in common. We’ve both have been attacked by Rush Limbaugh,’ Clinton said, adding, ‘She was 30. I was 13.‘
The former first daughter was referring to the 1993 incident in which Limbaugh mocked the teenager’s appearance.
‘Socks is the White House cat. But did you know there is also a White House dog?’ he had said, before showing an image of the young Clinton.
LOL. Well, Chelsea does have her Mom’s cankles. And back in ’93, it certainly wasn’t a state secret that Chelsea was a total bowser. She was even lampooned by Beavis and Butthead.
Kudos for Microsoft in taking the lead to squash so many of the botnets out there. They are doing things that law enforcement hasn’t been able to do. And they do it better too. Compare Microsoft’s approach, of selected targeting of specific hosts to the scattershot disruptive approach of the DOJ and ICE of grabbing DNS names.
To me the movie gets pretty boring past the Scranton hosting facility. Hosting services are being provided out of a section of rowhouses? And why does Scranton look like the Ukraine? That place really is a hellhole, isn’t it?
Thanks to Adam for the tip!
Tow Truck drivers typically steal cars for parking violations or for lack of payment. But when you need help getting off an Alpine road? The tow truck driver will dump you down the ravine and jump out like a boss.
Either that, or you shouldn’t hire Asian tow truck drivers.

Gads, the pure lack of respect for someone that works a thankless job is pretty jarring eh?
Nothing is creepier than a dozen or more naked headless mannequins standing around in the department store.
The Old Navy at Dulles Mall is changing locations and they stripped all of the Still Life hired help for the death march to the new storefront. We rounded the corner between the men’s and ladie’s tees and were shocked at the display.
I am always bewildered that humans take any sass from a hollow-boned marsh dweller like a goose. Seriously, they weigh 8 pounds. They have to roll a 98 or higher on two d10 just to cause a single hit point of damage.
And not all of these next ones are geese, but the same applies to any waterfowl.
And did you see when turkeys attack?

Obama has been dealt a string of setbacks and embarrassments unlike anything ever seen in American politics this week.
From AmericanThinker here:
- Last Friday, Mr. Obama wandered into the killing of Trayvon Martin. Aided by his ignorance of the situation, knee-jerk prejudices and tendency toward racial profiling, Mr. Obama played a heavy hand in elevating a tragic situation in which a teenager was killed into a full-blown hot race fight. He veered off into this bizarre tangent about how he and the poor dead kid look so much alike they could be father and son. It was election-year race-pandering gone horribly wrong.
- While in South Korea he was caught on a hidden mic negotiating with the president of our longest-standing rival on how to sell America and her allies down the river once he gets past the next election.
- Meanwhile, the Supreme Court took up Obamacare, the single most important achievement of Mr. Obama’s presidency and, boy, was it embarrassing. By most accounts, Mr. Obama and his stuttering lawyers were all but laughed out of the courthouse.
- Mr. Obama closed his week pulling off a nearly unimaginable feat: He managed to totally and completely unify the nastily-fighting Democrats and Republicans in Congress. Late Wednesday night, they unanimously voted — 414 to zip — to reject the budget Mr. Obama had presented.
Nothing says “Go sit on the bench, Rookie!” like a bitchslap from your own party in Congress rejecting your budget. I hope Obama has a worst week come November.
I gotta admit, I watch Fox News because I love the anchors and I like fair News Reporting. But Democrats famously flock to CNN because of the softball political questions from what they assume to be a friendly news staff. But if CNN starts setting up racist Congresswomen like this more often, I might have to watch more CNN. We’ll see. Anyways, here is Corrine Brown, Democrat from Florida, going on a tirade when she is framed as being a racist who only cares about black victims.
Where does one purchase a floopy wig like that? And below is a followup where Corrine Brown decries “bullshit” gotcha reporters.
If white people are sick, blacks have pneumonia, huh? Sounds racist to me. As a reminder to Floridians, this racist cretin is up for election this year. So do us a solid and send her packing okay?
Kids are afraid of Santa, and usually with good cause. And kids are equally afraid of giant rabbits who mutely paw at them to the twisted delight of their parents. All in the name of Easter, right? And the Easter Bunny is even scarier with crappy bunny costumes. Check out the terrifying rabbits and the scared kids in this slideshow.
Its absolutely disgusting that a news organization would edit a 911 tape to make someone appear to be racist when he’s clearly not. To do so is to invite the lynch mob with dog whistles and to fan the flames of hatred. All for what? Ratings?
From Hollywood Reporter here:
In the NBC segment, Zimmerman says: “This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.”
The full version, though, unfolds like this:
Zimmerman: “This guy looks like he’s up to no good, or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about.”
911 operator: “Okay. And this guy, is he white black or Hispanic?”
Zimmerman: “He looks black.”
The only way this type of irresponsibility on the part of News Organizations is going to stop is to sue their balls off. Zimmerman has a clear case of slander here in my opinion.
