SAN FRANCISCO, California (The Adobo Chronicles ) – Teenage idol Justin Bieber has lined up  a series of concerts in California in March next year at  venues in Los Angeles, Sacramento, Oakland and San Jose.

But sources close to the Canadian singer who spoke on condition of anonymity, said that Bieber will cut short his concert tour after his performance at the Oakland Oracle Arena on March 18, virtually cancelling his two scheduled concerts at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on March 20 and 21.

Instead, Bieber, who has had many encounters with U.S. law enforcement because of his behavior, will proceed to San Francisco to seek refuge from U.S. Immigration officials.

Bieber has repeatedly been charged with misdemeanors and violations including driving under the influence (DUI), resisting arrest and drag racing.

In 2013, the then 19-year-old Bieber was caught on camera urinating in a mop bucket as he and others raced through a New York City restaurant kitchen. Before exiting, Bieber sprayed a photograph of Clinton and dropped the F-bomb in reference to the former president.

The Department of Homeland Security’s Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS) is reportedly monitoring Bieber’s activities and is planning to revoke his work permit.

Fearing deportation, Bieber has decided to avail of San Francisco’s Sanctuary policy which prevents non-U.S. citizens from being handed over to law enforcement agencies to face crimes committed in the city or elsewhere in the U.S.

San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee told The Adobo Chronicles  that the City by the Bay remains committed to its sanctuary status and welcomes the addition of Bieber to the growing number of high-profile celebrities that have chosen to make San Francisco their home sweet home.

PUTIN ABRUPTLY CANCELS SNOWDEN’S ASYLUM VISA

imageMoscow, Russia – Russian president Vladimir Putin abruptly cancelled Edward Snowden’s visa, less than 48 hours after the suspected American spy was granted  a one-year asylum in Russia.

A spokesperson for the Russian government told reporters that the asylum cancellation came after Putin learned that Snowden is gay and that previous revelations about his dancer-girlfriend Lindsay Mills were a mere cover-up for his homosexuality.  Russia recently issued draconian laws to criminalize homosexuality and has stepped up a state-sanctioned campaign to persecute lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender citizens and visitors.

Ironically,  the discovery about Snowden’s sexual orientation came about after the U.S. National Security Agency leaked 5 years worth of email exchanges between Snowden and his long-time boyfriend.  The documents, obtained by the Russian government this week, showed that Mills is actually a lesbian cousin of Snowden. The NSA leaked documents did not identify Snowden’s boyfriend by name.

It was not clear whether Snowden is in custody or is back at the Moscow airport lounge which was the fugitive’s living quarters for many weeks prior to the asylum order.
