Obama is `Chocolate Jesus' According to Los Angeles City

LOS ANGELES, Calif. (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Glenn Beck is promoting
citizen journalism, busting ACORN for advising a prostitute with
housing. Patrick Duff and Craig Rubin are hoping for the same type of
government action by exposing what they feel is government corruption.
Rubin and Duff are both religious leaders that provide medical marijuana
in the City of Los Angeles.
Rubin, who played the owner of the medical marijuana club on the
Showtime hit show "Weeds," was arrested at his own medical
marijuana club in real life, Temple 420, and then given court permission
to reopen. Rubin opened another church-run dispensary, The Beverly Hills
Green Cross (2370 Robertson Blvd, Los Angeles, 90034), and is currently
working there. Duff founded a Rasta organization that provided medical
marijuana. He was closed by the City over location permits, then the
City allowed another medical marijuana club in that location. Duff and
Bob Marley's relative lead the congregation of Rastas and provided
medical cannabis to qualified patients.
When the Royal Temple was raided KTLA wrongly reported that former
mayoral candidate Craig X Rubin had been arrested. What really had
happened was that Rubin spoke to the media that evening on behalf of
Duff since Duff had spoken up for Rubin at City Hall two weeks prior.
The Temple volunteers who were arrested that night had all charges
dropped, however the cannabis was not returned.

Inspired by Fox News and the citizen journalism taking place on the
Internet, Duff and Rubin got together and began to investigate the
investigators. What they realized was the guy investigating Duff, L.A.
building inspector Tom Willis, is perhaps undermining federal policies
because Rubin and Duff believe he has an axe to grind – or worse.
Rubin, creator of an on-line cannabis school, profitfrompot. com, had his
completely legal marijuana educational site included in the City record
as to why his church's permit should be pulled, so Rubin and Duff
decided to look for information on-line to find the motivation of their
adversaries. What they discovered shocked them.
"Patrick," Rubin said speaking of Duff, "found one Web site
because the City inspector who shut him down mentioned Patrick's
first and last name in one of his posts."
Inspector Tom Willis freely admits he is an inspector of medical
marijuana clubs on the Web site race-dezert. com, where his handle is
TWillis. He writes, "Among my responsibilities as a building
inspector for the city of Los Angeles is inspecting Medical Marijuana
Dispensaries. " The self-described "low level bureaucrat"
also writes on Tacomaterritory. com.
On the Web site race-dezert. com Willis questions Duff's sincerity in
the Rasta religion because he is of Irish decent and on 9/11 of this
year he calls Obama, "Chocolate Jesus" under a forum entitled,
"The Kenyan gets Townhalled." He rejoices publicly over
President Obama being ridiculed by subordinates. He allegedly calls
Muslims, "Mooks," and jokes about killing his boss and a
co-worker on June 23 of this year saying, "I got a boss and a
co-worker that are gonna die on Dec. 20th of .357 caliber lead
poisoning." It may be a joke to him, but Duff and Rubin feel it
gives insight into his personal character and motivations.
Rubin saw law enforcement steal merchandise on his surveillance system,
and named the individuals in front of City Council while they were
voting to pull his church's permit. He also told them that $9,000
was taken by law enforcement and never reported. Rubin and Duff feel now
that their only recourse is to sue the individual council members for
violating their civil rights under color of law, so they got together to
discuss the commonalities of their situations.
It was then they decided to begin to inspect the inspectors. Rubin found
it particularly disturbing when Willis brags in one of the forums,
"I have cash," when offering to buy something and in a second
post, "I have $1,500 in crisp one hundred dollar bills."
"We are just starting our investigation, " says Rubin, "Glenn
Beck inspired me to root out corruption in local government. I agree
with Willis on a lot of issues and don't like Obama's policies
myself, but I am more respectful of our President and laws. These
statements need to be investigated. "
