This Surge Knight Was At “The Secret Meeting that Changed Rap Music and Destroyed a Generation”


After more than 20 years, I’ve finally decided to tell the world what I witnessed in 1991, which I believe was one of the biggest turning point in popular music, and ultimately American society. I have struggled for a long time weighing the pros and cons of making this story public as I was reluctant to implicate the individuals who were present that day. So I’ve simply decided to leave out names and all the details that may risk my personal well being and that of those who were, like me, dragged into something they weren’t ready for.

Between the late 80’s and early 90’s, I was what you may call a “decision maker” with one of the more established company in the music industry. I came from Europe in the early 80’s and quickly established myself in the business. The industry was different back then. Since technology and media weren’t accessible to people like they are today, the industry had more control over the public and had the means to influence them anyway it wanted. This may explain why in early 1991, I was invited to attend a closed door meeting with a small group of music business insiders to discuss rap music’s new direction. Little did I know that we would be asked to participate in one of the most unethical and destructive business practice I’ve ever seen.

This could finally be the end of the road for the record-label head who, a generation ago, helped bring the West Coast gangsta rap of Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and Tupac Shakur to the mainstream, pushing aside the pop rap of artists such as MC Hammer and Tone-Loc and putting low-riders and gang signs into heavy rotation on MTV. In the process, Knight established himself as a legendary music-biz tough guy. His exploits — some mythic, some real — during the heyday of Death Row Records have become part of hip-hop lore: In the early Nineties, he allegedly shook down Vanilla Ice into handing over publishing profits, walking the rapper out to a hotel-room balcony to show him how far his fall would be. (“I needed to wear a diaper that day,” Ice said later.) In his memoir, former N.W.A manager Jerry Heller alleged that Knight and his cohorts, bearing baseball bats, intimidated Eazy-E into releasing Dre from his Ruthless Records contract. (The claims have never been substantiated.) Knight was sitting next to Tupac when he was gunned down in 1996 in Las Vegas; his participation in a fight on the night of the shooting would land him in prison for five years on a probation violation.

Love Them Or Hate Them


Love them or hate them.

The Federal Police have repeatedly, created a media free zone and then killed.

That’s a reality. It is also the reality that the US has a militarized police with a long-standing trigger habit.

71 people have been killed by US police already in 2016.

Not sure if that includes Mr. Finicum.

1139 Last year.

They are asking for a 3rd party mediator, a witness. (see video)

This is not unreasonable given the state of our nation.

Getting these people out alive should be 1st priority.

They are four people. That have good and just cause to be afraid.

They have not been blind to what’s been happening in cities.

There is cause for fear.

This is one of the best quotes I have seen so far explaining what we are seeing:

This is the way it goes. The Corporate PR got you angry at a whole subset of people. So that, extrajudicial killings were OK, but the ones that were yelling then, “Wait! Wait. This is not OK.”

Will be the one’s cheering your death, now.

Got to mend some bridges.

It is not OK just because they are whitey to say, “Oh see we told you so…” and not help.

Please Help.

Analysis of Remarks by SAC Greg Bretzing at a Press Conference to Address the Ongoing Situation at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge


With little fanfare, this is a raw analysis of the press conference that went with the release of Remarks by SAC Greg Bretzing at a Press Conference to Address the Ongoing Situation at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge written statement present by FBI Portland
January 28, 2016

I will make it as easy to digest as possible within time constraints. This is not a polish piece. This is intended only to document in the most immediate fashion. If it warrants being polished this will be the draft it comes from. To use this analysis, please contact me. All rights reserved. This is the intellectual property of the Julia Clark Organization.

The source of the analysis is from shuff1111 of youtube. I do not know him. He only by chance was one of the first to have the Video of the press conference up. What I do find odd is that the press conference was not recorded and posted by any known agency or corporate media. Thank you shuff1111 for your service.

 

This is the Analysis derived: 

I have highlighted or noted points. This is not intended for laymen explanation. Please ask if you need more explanation or are curious about a highlight or note. 

1:10 trips over the word transparency

1:37 trips over the word several

3:42 video stream fails

3:42 says “Shortly the camera will pan back to” the video feed does not pan when it returns.

3:53 the video feed returns.

3:53 He says, “Oh, heads up.”

4:06 He says, “The camera is panning back to the jeep at this point.”

12:52 He states Oregon State Troupers were the ones that fired the weapons.

13:43 He uses “Umm” and tightened lips and sucked them inward

13:44 Shakes his head in a no fashion

13:47 He says, “That law enforcement showed great restraint while holding his hand in front of him in a barrier type way

13:50 He says “Then when the vehicle, then took off.” his voice quivers

13:51 Uses ‘Ummm”

13:52 He says, “you could see that it just about seriously injured, ahh, a law enforcement officer.”

13:53 a micro head shake

13:58 he says, “as its, as it barrels toward”

14:01 he says, “And that umm” pursed his lips together

14:06 He says, “based on the deadly force policy of the FBI and OSP Umm ahh that “

14:06 and extended blink

14:17 Uses “Umm” then says “as you can see afterwards and as I explained in the video, those pops and sounds that umm. Of course, there is no sounds in the video.”

14:28 He says, “flash bangs, ahh, sponge projectiles that pierce the window and oc gas

14:44 shakes head

14:44 He says “all occupants in the jeep surrendered without incident” shakes head again

14:50 He says “ahh with no violence”

15:00 smiles

15:06 Purse and smacks lips, their latest.

16:48 Serious look, looks, down and to the right, takes a deep breath uses “Umm” 3 times while explaining

18:23 He is asked if this is a stop for a traffic violation. The question clearly amuses him. He first clearly states, “no.” then says, “Not that I’m. Well, then. You know what, I don’t know, there might have been” takes a ha, “that was not the purpose of the call err the stop”

  • This is troubling. He clearly and jovially changes the case file to fit his theory. He says,”No.” firmly, then catches himself. Dismisses himself and stops that dismissal midsentence. then moves to the willing chair with the statement, “well, then”, and  makes a choice to fudge the records with the justification, “You know what” statement, then proceeds to change the record.
  • However, his utterance and mistaken word of using call instead of stop. Highly suggests that  that the call the Bundy’s had hours before from the FBI negotiator was also a fabrication and not in good faith.

 

18:29 He takes a question about distance. He says that he “You know, the exact distance, I can’t tell you. That’s why we actually show you the video. You can tell that a period of time went by and that they were traveling at a high rate of speed. Umm. He purses lips and licks them. “And they had plenty of. And again they were, they were stopped for well over four minutes. And then they chose.. as I said two nights ago or last night.” smacks lips, “Actions have consequences”

19:19 stumbles over the word truck, using car instead and correcting himself.

19:23 he says, “And is currently in our custody, umm” then purse lips

19:34 he says, “But umm as the video clearly shows”

We Are Against Rape And The Rape Culture.


Moral Compass

Use your Moral Compass

All names are changed or excluded, except mine: 

Apparently. I need to make an statement that I am against the normalization of rape.

Recently, I was invited to a group chat. One of the participants made a apathetic comment about rape fantasies being normal. I responded in dismay. Their reply was “their best friend was a sexologist.” implying that they were knowledgeable in sexual studies because of their best friend’s degree. I pointed out “The full understanding and scope of sexual studies also includes predatorization.”

Instead of apologizing for being apathetic about rape, they condescendingly apologized about “triggering me.” Triggering, in case you do not know, is a term used to describe events that cause emotional distress in victims of trauma.

At that time, I decided to not bet the reputations of my peers, and vet this person myself.

And when I questioned the person. They took a “cop shot” by saying, “Are you really a cop lover Julia? “

The rancor of the query, “Are you really a cop lover?” is appalling to me. Almost as appalling as being flippant about rape.

To attempt a cowing by shaming someone as “cop lover” is wrong.

To imply that I, or anyone, should be ashamed of being a “cop lover” is wrong.

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Fraud Examination, Justice Studies, and Writing. Fraud Examination, Justice Studies are law enforcement related.

Justice Studies, Law Enforcement Studies, and Criminology are important academia.  

Addressing Fraud and corruption requires the research of and the application of such knowledge.

The very basis of my Organization includes law enforcement.

For 22 years, The JC Organization has spoken out against corruption, acted against corruption and assisted others in addressing and acting on corruption. The JC Organization has quietly promoted an ethics campaign inclusive of all tenets by giving encouragement and support to people, so they can make their own stances for good ethical choices

We do not discriminate against  police departments in addressing fraud and corruption. And addressing fraud and corruption within police departments is one of the most dangerous areas of activism.

Moreover, one of the most noble men I knew was my Step-father. He was Sheriff of the county where I grew up. Am I a cop lover? Absolutely, I loved my Step-father dearly and still miss him to this day.

My law enforcement background aside;

When lobbying the drug cartels for support on the campaigns against corruption, rape and murder as part of the vice trade did come up. We took a strong ethical stance. Rape and murder are not to be a part of the vice trade. People should not be allowed to live out such fantasies, even if others were willing to be victims for a price.

If you have fantasies about murdering, you need to closely examine why.

If you have fantasies about rape, you need to closely examine why.

If you have fantasies about rape or murder, examine them and figure out what’s going on. Are they fantasies, or are you coming undone?  Because fantasizing can be an outlet, as long as you keep it in the realm of fantasy and don’t take it out into the real world.  We have become completely desensitized to violence as a culture. When you don’t recognize this it can become dangerous, both for you and everyone you come in contact with. ^^^

To be casual about rape fantasies, rape culture, and rape in general allows our sensibilities to harden, very similar to when we overlook injustice as exampled in these quotes:

Every time we witness an injustice and do not act, we   train our character to be passive in its presence and thereby eventually lose all ability to defend ourselves and those we love.   

We become co-conspirators in that injustice.  To stand by and do nothing makes us complicit, even though we don’t raise a hand, because inaction can be worse than the action. Inaction somehow makes it OK.

One of the most esteemed amongst my peers lives in the shadow of this facade duplicity, which is best described in this quote:

You cannot oppose something, yet forgive it circumstantially. …

We oppose rape, yet laugh at the rape of those we deem deserving of it in prisons. …

Our duplicity opens the door for justification, which invariably leads to deeper and deeper moral collapse.

We are against rape and the rape culture.

If you are in any way pro-rape, you can expect aggressive action against you.

If this scares you more than the rape culture scares you, you are part of the problem.

The Declaration of Independence—Except for ‘Indian Savages’ – ICTMN.com


Pause right there. Does the most famous document in American history really state “all Men are created equal,” then hypocritically proclaim right afterward its first inhabitants are “merciless Indian savages”?

Yes, it really does, and this founding document was more than just a document written in the context of a bitter conflict. Consider, although Jefferson is most credited for penning this famous document, it was written by a committee of 5 people – including Benjamin Franklin and John Adams – and ratified 86 times by the Continental Congress before becoming official and signed. So this was a carefully mulled over phrase in that Natives would forever be considered “savages” in regards to their future relations with the U.S.

Go figure, in Jefferson’s rough draft was a statement he was adamant in having “against King George III for creating and sustaining the slave trade, describing it as ‘a cruel war against human nature.’” He was eventually overruled.

4 Alternate Theories on Who Hacked Sony — NYMag


While North Korea complained about The Interview to the United Nations in July, it appears the film’s connection to the Sony attack originated in the media. In an email sent to Sony executives three days before the attack, the apparent hackers wrote in broken English, “monetary compensation we want.” There was no mention of The Interview in these initial communications, and on December 1 someone claiming to be a Guardians of Peace spokesperson told CSO Online that reports citing the film as the motivation for the hack were untrue. “We are an international organization including famous figures in the politics and society from several nations such as United States, United Kingdom and France,” the hacker claimed. “We are not under direction of any state.”

being able to uy someone would have been useful in getting information to be able to bust him and his location.

One time when I was having  very difficult time with cowing from many redflag accounts, rotharmy put up a video that had been obtained by surveillance . It was a surveillance of him I had no doubt. After that the cowing against me lightened up

I wonder if I can find the video I am speaking of.  Nope could not find it. If I happen upon it in any of my blogs, I’ll put it over here, if I remember to.

Sony Pictures Knew of Gaps in Computer Network Before Hack Attack | Re/code


Auditors found that since transitioning from a third-party vendor in September 2013, Sony Pictures had failed to notify the corporate security team to monitor newly added devices, such as web servers and routers.

Studio management told the auditors its corporate security team is focused on bolstering devices on the perimeter of Sony’s networks and that it hasn’t applied “the same level of rigor” for other, non-security devices such as routers and web servers. The document doesn’t go into detail as to why a different standard was applied.

By the end of July, Sony Pictures provided a current inventory of all devices to be tracked.

Auditors also found that Sony Pictures failed to reconcile the list of security devices its corporate team should have been monitoring with those it was monitoring. As a result, they might have missed additional devices being added to or removed from the networking, adding that “critical security devices may not be monitored.”

Sony Pictures’ in-house staff pledged to develop a process for keeping track of its devices by Oct. 31 — barely a month before hackers made their presence on the studio’s corporate network known.
