Furiously Scrubbing Reality

Posted on

A cheap talking head on the Rachel Maddow show discussing the ‘fast and furious’ hearings said “Once you immerse yourself in this issue it’s like being on acid.”  That was an insult to good acid, which probably can’t even be found anymore, but in a way correct in that the government and media are attempting to alter perception and create a reality that has little to do with what has happened and is happening.

The media is actually all on the same side and as they march along they have this Drill Sargent screaming left-right, left-right, left-right so that they stay in line and keep their respective talking points in focus.

Republicans pretend ‘gunwalker’ was a leftist plot to try and further enact some gun control. Democrats pretend the repubs and the hearing and contempt charges are just wanting to make Holder and Obama look bad in an election year. Obama invokes ‘executive privilege’ to protect internal discussions and deliberations and the spin and debate will continue until the public is tired of hearing about it and moves on to something else.

I can only speculate and ask questions but doesn’t government arms running and drug trafficking go hand in hand? Could it be that the real cover-up from both sides of the cesspool is to distract us from the fact that the U.S. government, CIA and accessories are the biggest dope traffickers in the world. This speculation will not be discussed on the nightly news.

Was ‘fast and furious’ set up as some sort of plausible deniability scenario in case the heavy duty big number gun running operations of the U.S. were found out? We supply the cartels directly or by proxy don’t we? What do we get in return?

I’ve wondered about the weapons found at the scene of the dead border patrol agent. Was it as simple as the shooter(s) ditched the guns so as not to be caught with the evidence or were they left there on purpose to point at the relatively minor ‘furious’ operation and keep us occupied away from the bigger suppliers? Maybe that’s going a little too far down the rabbit hole but rabbit holes do exist. Perhaps it’s as basic as a big screw up by the feds in one of their many little operations.

The U.S. government, CIA and military drug running have a long history. From Vietnam to Iran-Contra to Mena to CIA creation of crack for the ghettos to Afghanistan today the evidence is overwhelming. Few reporters are going to touch it. They remember Gary Webb. (The Dark Alliance by Gary Webb pdf)

As always when there’s big money involved, there are the banks at the center of the crime scene. The Mexican cartels and others needed money laundered and Wachovia gladly obliged.

A slew of federal charges filed in 2009 by Federal prosecutors in Florida hit Wachovia with the largest violation of the Bank Secrecy Act in U.S. history.

Douglas Edwards, senior vice president of Wachovia Bank confessed they didn’t do enough to spot illicit funds in handling the $378.4 billions for the Mexico’s Casa Cambios. But Edwards declined to answer specific questions including how much they earned for handling the billions of dollars for the currency operation.

Overall, the amount of drug proceeds ($378 billion dollars) that the CDC deposited into Wachovia Bank actually equaled one third of Mexico’s entire $1.4 trillion dollar annual GDP.

As part of the agreement Wachovia agreed to pay the government a fine of $110 million dollars with an additional fine of $50 million dollars to be paid to the U.S. Treasury Department. The total fine of $160 million dollars was less than 2% of the bank’s $12.3 billion dollars in profit made in 2009. By the time Wachovia agreed to pay the hefty fine, Wells Fargo purchased Wachovia during the banking crisis for $12.7 billion. Then Wells Fargo reaped a windfall from the government, a gift of $25 billion dollars of taxpayers money as part of President Obama stimulus package in 2009.  more

Even the UN reported this:

Drugs money saved some banks from collapse at the height of the global crisis the United Nations’ drugs and crime chief claimed.

Antonio Maria Costa, head of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime, told the Observer that there were signs that some banks were rescued by billions of dollars that ‘originated from the drugs trade and other illegal activities.’

He said he had seen evidence that the proceeds of organised crime were the ‘only liquid investment capital’ available to some banks on the verge of collapse last year.

Costa said that as a result, a majority of the $352bn (£216bn) of drugs profits was absorbed into the economics system, effectively laundering it.  more

But to get back to my rambling point. ‘Fast and Furious’ is nothing. The real story is that elements of governments and banks depend on the profits of the drug trade to continue other portions of their agenda and to make a few individuals very rich. The diversion of ‘furious’ serves a purpose and maintains business as usual. Some of the huge profits of  ‘dope’ get funneled back to politicians and media in exchange for keeping up the illusions in a vicious circle of corruption. Thousands of dead Mexicans and a few Americans in the cartel wars and an unknown number of overdosed and damaged addicts all over the world are just collateral damage in this psychopathic pursuit of profits and control and are seen as easily replaced pawns.
,
“The War on Drugs” is another aspect  We lock more people than any other country and the ‘drug war’ contributes to much of it. The public and private industrial prison system is a huge industry. Tons of money are given to local police for the militarization of their forces just in case they are needed to back up the feds in a ‘crisis.’ 

Colorado is set to vote this November for the legalization of marijuana. Can you imagine how that vote would go if the main stream media started talking about federal involvement in the drug trade? Even the electronic voting machines could not rig the outcome if a majority of people realized this.

Hundreds of hours of air time will be spent on ‘furious’ but not a second on the true underlying reasons for it.
 

We are trapped in a media acid trip and we’re not going to come down from it anytime soon. The bankers and their contractors will make every attempt to see to it. Our only chance is to spread the word ourselves. I see a great number of folks open to the idea of our government as the dope dealers and the big banks as the money launderers. It’s way past time to end this madness.

A Con Game

Posted on Updated on

My ‘con‘ Diane Black is not only an Israel firster but has a husband who claims to be a doctor and has made millions in the drug testing industry through his company Aegis Sciences Corporation. This pseudo-doctor is now making the rounds at Tennessee’s capital hill trying to influence the legislature to derail the “Safe Access to Medical Cannabis Act.” Of course he stands to lose a sizable chunk of his income from this sensible bill especially if one day full legalization comes to be. He and his wife, who needs to be ousted from Congress, might have to actually work for a living if the fraud of the ‘war on drugs’ ends.

The letter Mr. Black is passing around is here.   Lobbying to maintain one’s position in a con game is nothing new, in fact, it’s how the legal system works. According to the illegal meanderings of the Supreme Court, Aegis is a person who can give bribes and influence people to maintain their positions of power and profit.

Even the Tennessean is publishing what most likely is a lobbyist screed posing as an ‘editorial.’

The fix is in. A couple of things the Tennessee legislature cannot be accused of is having common sense and compassion. Honest representation at all levels of government without the taint of blood money is a broken concept.

Day of Insanity

Posted on

 

In Oakland there was insanity today.

Mass fatalities” are reported in a shooting at an Oakland religious nursing college.

A sick SOB enters the campus and kills 7. Cops may have caught the shooter but it’s after the fact. The victims in the shooting gallery were unarmed and helpless.

Meanwhile across town, the feds, also being the sick SOB’s that they are, raided Oaksterdam University, California’s first cannabis industry training school. The victims in this were also unarmed and helpless. No casualties except for the Constitution and some green plant material.

This is a calculated attack across the state on everyone who is trying to bring the cannabis industry out of the darkness and into the light,” said Executive Chancellor Dale Sky Jones. “They’re going after industry leaders one at a time.”

Travesty at two campuses.  Both schools are very similar. They both taught people how to help others and become an integral part of the economy.

You can’t blame the local and state law enforcement for the killings with the information we now have, although it is convenient the shooting story buried the illegal fed raid one. The cops can’t be everywhere. But where are they for the federal medical marijuana ‘Stalinist’ purges?  Jerry Brown could send in the state cops and tell the plutocrat goons they have no jurisdiction and to get the hell out of there and never come back. Oh yeah, the top boys are laying back and counting their federal bribes and putting a spit shine on their toys.

Speaking of toys and insanity, the Pentagon and one day the local arm of the police state are wanting nuclear powered drones that can stay up for months without refueling.

Sandia National Laboratories is often asked to look at a wide range of solutions to the toughest technical challenges. The research on this topic was highly theoretical and very conceptual. The work only resulted in a preliminary feasibility study and no hardware was ever built or tested. The project has ended.”

Uh… right, the project has ended. If you believe that then I’ve got a building that used to house a pot college to sell you, a blood splattered classroom you can clean up and I’ll give you an old original piece of paper that is now worthless except as a fire starter for the cold and homeless.

Drug War Clock 2011

// DrugSense Drug War Clock

Statistics from DrugSense

Every for profit endeavor in order to succeed must have one thing … customers. 

For the police/judicial/prison systems the ‘War on Drugs’ creates its own customers by implementing laws that say what an individual cannot ingest or possess. The question remains whether the drug use or the legislative/criminal ‘justice’ system does the most harm to society. Many of us came to conclusion long ago that it’s not the drugs that are the major problem but the war against them.

Lately I’ve been following what is going on in my local county. Arrests for drugs and violation of probation for previous drug charges far outnumber all others combined. Sometimes it’s marijuana but most often it is the latest ‘craze’ … meth. Don’t get me wrong, I’m no proponent of meth use but there’s one thing to understand. Meth is a do it yourself drug, similar in that respect to weed. Country folks have always had that DIY mentality and combined with lack of education, money and jobs, some choose to go into business for themselves. Plus they like the high.

Every single person in my county jail is white so here it is not a minority issue. Bail for those caught with the “shake and bake” meth making technique has been set at up to $400,000 just in the last month. Besides maybe 1st degree murder, any other crime will get you out on a much less bond. The police are always itching to nab a meth maker. It justifies their existence. Without the ‘drug war’ much fewer police would be needed, a county strapped for cash could use the money elsewhere and those police left on the job could concentrate on the more egregious crimes against persons and property. This applies not only locally but to the state and federal law enforcement agencies.

The government hates DIY. The sanctioned illegal drug market includes everything from the CIA and military and federal officials to the big banks that launder the money. One needs to look no further than Afghanistan to see that our own government in combination with international bankers are the major players in the world wide drug trade. They have plenty of help but you know the story.

Many will say that legalization of all drugs is the answer. After all, the medical/pharmaceutical legal drug trade kills many more people than the illegal ones do. A fraction of the billions of dollars saved each year by legalization could be going into honest prevention and treatment. Yes, there will be still be casualties in legalization. A percentage of users, however small, will not be able to handle drugs and fall into the abyss of addiction and death. That’s the way it’s always been. Most of us have seen it. Legalization will not change that.

The idea that government should get into the drug business with taxation and control of the market won’t work at all if too high a taxation is imposed. That would just leave open a black market to undersell the government and the criminal elements would continue. The end of the prohibition of marijuana with allowing people to grow whatever they please is a no-brainer. Along with that the re-introduction of industrial hemp would create new farming opportunities and a multitude of renewable ‘green’ products. That scares many big corporations who don’t want the competition. Legalization of all other drugs is a more complex issue and I don’t have all the answers on that.

Some will say that legalization will lead to a drugged society that is much easier to control. It’s a valid argument. One of the recipes in the cookbook of the Protocols is to ply the masses with alcohol and in the updated version it is drugs. Aldous Huxley warned us of this in “Brave New World.” The  ‘soma’ would be  designer drugs to allow us to enjoy our slavery and debt. For all we know they are already on the shelf ready to go when the time is right. A tweaked version of Ecstasy (MDMA) maybe?

We have numerous pressing issues facing our declining country. Illegal wars of empire and a contrived collapse of the economy for the profit of a few stand at the top of the list but at this point in time it also seems to me that a great number of lives are being wasted because of the ‘war on drugs.’ Non-violent offenders whose prospects for a ‘normal’ life are cut short because the war needs customers … and they are it.

The Land of the Free punishes or imprisons more of its citizens than any other nation. This collection of testimonials from criminal offenders, family members, and experts on America’s criminal justice system puts a human face on the millions of Americans subjugated by the US Government’s 40 year, one trillion dollar social catastrophe: The War on Drugs; a failed policy underscored by fear, politics, racial prejudice and intolerance in a public atmosphere of out of sight, out of mind.

The United States has only 5% of the world’s population, yet a full 25% of the world’s prisoners. At 2.5 million, the US has more prisoners than even China does with five times the population of the United States. 8 million Americans (1 in every 31) languish under some form of state monitoring known as correctional supervision. On top of that, the security and livelihood of over 13 million more has been forever altered by a felony conviction.

The American use of punishment is so pervasive, and so disproportionate, that even the conservative magazine The Economist declared in 2010, never in the civilized world have so many been locked up for so little.

The Exile Nation Project has an interesting full length documentary on the ‘war on drugs.’ Part 1 is below and the rest can be found at NoMoreCensorship.

Forget Iran, Let’s Invade Costa Rica

Posted on Updated on

It’s been awhile since we invaded a Latin American country, not since Haiti earlier this year. What took so long? And why is the main stream media so silent on this?

I suppose some uppity folks in Costa Rica must be cutting in on the CIA drug trade. Can’t have that can we? 7,000 troops and 46 warships should do the trick. Watch your back Hugo …..

They’re sending down just a massive amount of military. It’s sort of like dropping the atomic bomb on a group of ants.”

In case you have not heard the latest that the USA is lending a “helping hand” to the Costa Rican government by assisting them with their drug trafficking problems that have been on the rise now for sometime. So far this all sounds fine and dandy however when was the last time the US lent a hand without demanding something in return? This is where things get ugly for Costa Rica. For as long as anyone can remember, the United States has pursued the opportunity to build a US Military base inside of Costa Rica. What many do not understand is that they already have one!

The US military base in Limon is an operational center for preliminary and confidential negotiations. In total, the USA holds 14 military bases throughout Latin America. Clearly this might concern countries like Venezuela.

Considering the US is rapidly becoming quite famous for creating war on inanimate objects, it would appear that they ran through the usual BS lines like “bringing democracy”, “freedom to the people”, “war on terror”, “war on drugs”, “war on abortion” and did we mention “war on drugs”? Yeah well that’s the one the roulette wheel land on. I mean really here folks, I’m sure it kind of went like this…

Ok lets bring democracy to Costa Rica. Ra Ra! Ooops…they’ve got that already and it’s even considered more stable than our own government. Ok what’s next? Ahhh yes….let’s bring freedom to the people of…oh really…you’re kidding me? They already are a free and happy country? Darn it. Ok what else do we have? Surely there must be some Taliban hiding in the jungles of Costa Rica somewhere right? No? Ok this is getting ridiculous now. {more}

U.S. Navy Evacuates Gulf

Under the guise of the “war on drugs” the U.S. Military is evacuating its ships and hardware from the Gulf of Mexico to safety off the sheltered coast of Costa Rica.

The “war on drugs” cover story is laughable being that we can’t even get that level of engagement on our border with Mexico where all the drugs come through.

The Navy is obviously worried about either poison from the methane/corexit 9500 mix or a massive methane explosion/tsunami. A tsunami fits with the NOAA blackout of the U.S. tsunami warning system. It also explains why BP is not actively cleaning up the oil on the beaches. Why clean them up if they are going to be gone. {more}

Tennessee’s "Safe Access to Medical Cannabis Act."

Posted on

Finally the local media covers a proposed medical marijuana bill for our state.

WKRN Nashville 2-16-10

The bill is certainly not perfect, marijuana should be totally legal for everyone, but it is a great improvement over what we have now which is prohibition and criminalization. The proposed cost of $60 per ounce to patients sure beats the high cost in California and elsewhere.

The issue of legalizing medical marijuana is both progressive and conservative so there really should not be any heated debate between concerned citizens. Only those who have vested interests in the pharmaceutical industry and the police state prison system that bottom feeds in the ‘war on drugs’  would dare to make any attempt to deny relief to sick people, especially under the guise of ‘morality.’

All freedom minded Tennesseans should contact their representatives and firmly recommend that they pass this law.  HR 2562 and SB 2511.

Let’s not mince words here. Legalizing medical marijuana is the first step. Other steps will be the legalization of industrial hemp and cannabis for personal use including growing. It’s called states rights and the feds have no authority and need to stay out of it.

Bernie Ellis, one of those interviewed in the above video, has a story that is documented by Jim Ridley and the Nashville Scene. It’s a human interest tale of someone who valued principle and compassion over their own personal security.

Proof the Copenhagen Climate Conference is a Fraud … Hemp is ‘off the table’

Posted on

No matter where you stand on the issue of ‘climate change,’ a sure sign that the Copenhagen conference is not really interested in solutions but only in the extortion of money and global control is that hemp is not ‘on the table.’

Ever hear Al Gore say a word on the benefit of planting massive amounts of hemp as a carbon capture plant and its many uses that could replace thousands of polluting products and create hundreds of thousands of ‘green’ jobs.

Nope, you haven’t and you never will. It would make too much sense. The frauds want a centralized mechanism where only a few benefit and the rest of the world would be under their thumb.

We should say no to false science, CO2 demonetization, cap and trade, carbon credits, the UN, bankers, big oil and corporate thieves and yes to hemp, small farmers and the new entrepreneurs who actually have some answers for a better world. Easier said than done but we can get there.

Silence at Copenhagen …

Hemp Global Solutions

Our basic premise is that hemp is far more productive than typical agro-forestry projects, producing annual, versatile biomass alongside more rapid CO2 uptake. It can produce a vast range of sustainable raw materials with an overall low environmental impact, as well as improving soil structure, using low fertiliser and no other chemical inputs (i.e. reduced agrochemical residues).

Hemp can be grown on existing agricultural land (unlike most forestry projects), and can be included as part of a farm’s crop rotation with positive effects on overall yields of follow on crops. This, along with super versatility in diverse soil conditions and climates, makes hemp cultivation a viable and genuine potential.

The vast quantities of hemp derived products and raw materials created by large scale cultivation could replace many oil-based unsustainable products and materials, particularly in construction, locking in captured CO2 and creating secondary benefits to the global environment. In particular, hemp could be used to replace significant quantities of tree-derived products, allowing reduced use of existing tree populations, thus maintaining their CO2 uptake.

Hemp also produces much higher quantities of stronger and more versatile fibre than cotton, and many other fibre crops, which often have very high chemical residue and water footprints. Extra processing required by hemp is also at least partially offset by its recycling potential. {more}

If all fossil fuels and their derivatives, as well as trees for paper and construction, were banned in order to save the planet, reverse the Greenhouse Effect and stop deforestation;

then there is only one known annually renewable natural resource that is capable of providing the overall majority of the world’s paper and textiles; meet all of the world’s transportation, industrial and home energy needs, while simultaneously reducing pollution, rebuilding the soil and cleaning the atmosphere all at the same time…

and that substance is the same one that has done it before . . .
