This week, Olga Sanchez Cordero, the future interior minister of incoming Mexican president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, announced that the government is strongly considering the decriminalization of all drugs.

Sanchez Cordero said at a seminar that she has full permission from the incoming administration to do whatever it takes to stop the cartel violence in the country, and ending the drug war is at the top of the list.

‘The water is disappearing in San Felipe Ecatepec, an Indigenous town three miles outside of San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas, in southern Mexico.

People sometimes walk two hours a day to get water. Others have to buy their water.

“In the past four years, our wells have started drying up,” says Juan Urbano, who just finished a three-year term this February as the president of the Communal Territory of San Felipe Ecatepec. “People sometimes walk two hours a day to get water. Others have to buy their water.”

Where is all the water going?

In between San Felipe and San Cristobal lies a Coca-Cola bottling plant, operated by the Mexican company FEMSA. The plant consumed over 1.08 million liters of water per day in 2016.’

‘As a growing number of individual states in the U.S. stand up to the federal government on marijuana prohibition, Mexico legalized medical marijuana nationwide on Monday.

Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto issued a decree, following the bill’s overwhelming approval from Mexico’s Senate in December, with a vote of 98-7, and from Mexico’s Lower House of Congress in April, with a vote of 374-7 vote.

The ruling eliminates the prohibition and criminalization of acts related to the medicinal use of marijuana and its scientific research, and those relating to the production and distribution of the plant for these purposes.

The decree stated that the nation’s Ministry of Health would be in charge of “public policies regulating the medicinal use of pharmacological derivatives of cannabis sativa, indica and Americana or marijuana, including tetrahydrocannabinol, its isomers and stereochemical variants, as well as how to regulate the research and national production of them.”’

Ford has confirmed plans for a new assembly plant in Mexico, likely fueling more criticism of the company in the current presidential election.

“We’re going to be in vesting in a new plant in Mexico’s San Luis Potosi state to produce more small cars for North America,” said Ford President of the America’s Joe Hinrichs.  “It’s a $1.6 billion U.S. investment that will create 2800 additional direct jobs by 2020.”

Hinrichs told WWJ AutoBeat Reporter Jeff Gilbert that construction will begin this summer.  The first small cars will start rolling off the line at the plant in 2018.

While the new jobs will be in Mexico, Hinrichs says they could lead to more engineering and design jobs at the company’s Dearborn headquarters.

But the UAW wasn’t ready to be reassured, calling the announcement a disappointment and “very troubling.”

For decades, it has been rumored the United States government was secretly sponsoring the smuggling of cocaine into the country. Federal officials have long denied such speculation, pointing out the billions of dollars spent intercepting drugs. Newly released documents, and testimony from Justice Department and DEA officials now show the stories of government running cocaine are true.

An investigation conducted in Mexico found the American government allowed that country’s largest drug cartel, Sinaloa, to operate without fear of persecution. That groups is estimated to be responsible for 80 percent of the cocaine coming into the country through Chicago. In exchange, the leaders of Sinaloa provided the DEA information on rival gangs.

The drug cartel working with the federal government is run by . He is considered to be the world’s most powerful drug trafficker. In addition to Chicago, his group also maintains cocaine operations in several major cities around the country.

Written statements were provided to a U.S. District Court in Chicago, confirming the alliance between the DEA and Mexico’s largest cocaine cartel. The written testimony, combined with other evidence, shows DEA officials met with leaders of the Sinaloa cartel more than 50 times between 2000 and 2012. This would mean DEA-authorized drug smuggling goes back to at least the beginning of the George W. Bush administration, and continued for year under Barack Obama.

One of the groups leaders, Vincente Zambada-Niebla, claims the American government also sent military-grade weapons to Sinoloa. According to the latest revelations, it was these weapons which were part of the Fast-and-Furious scandal. Automatic firearms which disappeared during that operation, led by Eric Holder, were used to kill U.S. Border agents.

This latest evidence and testimony points toward a massive scandal, involving both Republican and Democratic administrations. At the very least, this provides the best evidence so far that the Federal government was sponsoring the smuggling of billions of dollars of cocaine into the United States. Worse still, weapons purchased for the U.S. military may have been sent to the cartel, and used to kill American agents.

Those actions transcend any partisan politics.

Iowa utilities joining drill simulating knockout blow to nation’s power grid

–Scenario calls for ‘prolonged blackout’ 05 Nov 2013 Iowa’s largest electric utilities will participate next week in a closely watched exercise simulating a knockout blow to the US electrical supply by cyber-sabotage and physical attacks. Officials with MidAmerican Energy and Alliant Energy confirmed to the Des Moines Register they will be involved in GridEx II on Nov. 12 and 13. The event is sponsored by the North American Electric Reliability Corp., a non-profit entity whose mission is to ‘ensure the reliability’ of the bulk-power system in North America. The exercise will reportedly involve thousands of utility workers, business executives, anti-terrorism experts and government officials from the United States, Canada and Mexico.

[Under cover of chaos and darkness, just what will these nutjobs aka the US government/corpora-terrorist trolls, do?

Narcotics: Business of Western wars

Container trucks carrying NATO supplies are seen parked at the Pakistani town of Chaman, before being moved to Afghanistan, July 27, 2012.

Heroin trafficking is the lubrication that keeps the wheels of Western politics moving as intended.”

Related Interviews:
It was only a week ago that the US government released Eric Harroun, a former soldier who had been fighting with foreign backed al-Qaeda terrorists and the CIA against the Assad government in Syria.

This week, former Army sergeant Joseph Hunter and a group of other veterans, one from Germany’s armed forces, were arrested for much the same thing, offering “security services” for Colombian drug cartels.

Were worldwide press censorship to ease, the public would learn that America’s drone program is used more for maintaining control of drug production and distribution than terrorism. In fact, according to Russian officials, heroin from Afghanistan, all produced and exported under unspoken but very public approval of US officials, killed over one million people last year.

Drug production, when examined using economic modeling, makes oil racketeering and arms trafficking seem primitive in comparison. No technology is used, fertilizer financed through IMF programs, poppy fields irrigated through USAID programs, heroin processed in German-built labs, shipped on American truck convoys or CIA-leased aircraft, distributed around the world at 10,000% profit.

The CIA has been doing this since the early 1980s and, as every sane person in the world knows, built the drug empire in Afghanistan, the largest in the world.

By “security,” we mean killings, in this case, the group had actually been hired by Americans posing as Colombian drug dealer.

Their job was to murder anyone, including drug enforcement officers, public officials and their family members, even the president of the United States, if asked.

There is a problem with all of this, perhaps more than one problem.

Isn’t this exactly what thousands of Americans, members of the military, the intelligence services, thugs working for USAID and NGOs, have been doing all along.

Political power of the drug

America’s government faces a shutdown, this time because powerful banks and insurance companies feel their profits and political power threatened by health care laws that regulate their long despicable practices.

The members of congress paid by the insurance and health care racketeers were, in dozens of cases, put into office by drug money laundered through offshore accounts controlled by former presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

This marriage of power, the narcotics lobby, the pro-war lobby, particularly McCain, Graham and Lieberman, is also the heart of the Israel lobby.

Before the last election, in meetings with the former head of the FBI’s drug task force, I was given documents outlining ties between top Republican Party officials and the Mexican drug cartels, which are currently terrorizing over a dozen American states.

Gangs of killers employed by these cartels, fully supported by the Republican Party, control most of America’s southwest region and are closely partnered with the LDS (Latter Day Saints) religious sect.

They have set up their own “kingdom,” called “Deseret” inside the United States where they have married religious rule with organized crime.

The Kingdom of Deseret still exists, a region covering nearly 18% of the United States, extending from the Mexican border to the snowy peaks of Idaho.

Citizens of Deseret control much of the FBI and CIA, gambling operations in Las Vegas and have enjoyed over a century of partnership with lawless elements in Mexico.

Extremists among the Deseret hierarchy boast of controlling America’s naval vessels operating in the Mediterranean and Persian Gulf and of their ability to access nuclear weapons.

This is the group that controls the NSA. The NSA’s $4 billion “fusion center” is being constructed in Utah, an LDS-controlled region, “ground zero” for the Kingdom of Deseret.

Background

As early as the 1840s, the LDS terrorized wagon trains heading across the west, kidnapping women, murdering all others.

Within their own community, they maintained control through “Avenging Angels,” assassins that enforced religious doctrine and hierarchical control, though murder. This system still exists.
It was the model for America’s current privatization model, with mercenary groups answerable to extremist organizations and racketeers, all paid for by American taxpayers, running drugs, delivering poison gas to al-Qaeda and orchestrating terror attacks.

In the late 1800s, the LDS or “Mormons” as they are called, fled to Mexico after an unsuccessful war against the United States. There, they formed alliances with bandits and revolutionaries along the border, groups that have now “morphed” into the drug cartels of today.

Those relationships are alive and well today and extend through the heart of America’s financial centers and controlling America’s lower legislative body, the House of Representatives.

Key members of that organization enjoy huge financial benefits from offshore accounts that were made public during the last election, made public and then forgotten.

This power is used in combination with the Israeli AIPAC lobby to support NSA spying and widespread manipulation of financial markets, particularly using the mass of proprietary data gleaned through spying and given to Israel through the recently publicized Memorandum of Understanding.

Call this a “front row ticket” to controlling all financial transactions, technology and intellectual property of the United States, controlling and peddling around the world through open and legalized “piracy.”

Afghanistan

The war in Afghanistan has made the power of the narcotics lobby over America’s military, intelligence and governmental organizations more than obvious.

The narcotics cartels obviously control America’s media.

During the 12 years of American rule, Afghanistan has gone from a nearly drug free nation under the Taliban to a country of addicts and the producer of over 95% of the world’s refined heroin.

Even the United Nations has been warned off, no longer even reporting heroin production in Afghanistan. America talks about its anti-drug efforts though former US envoy, Richard Hollbrooke, openly admitted that narcotics production was key to America’s policy in Afghanistan.

No one has spoken of it since.

Invisible drug empire

Two weeks ago, the US government sentenced an African American soldier, a West Point graduate, to prison for involvement in the heroin trade in Afghanistan. From Navy Times:
“A West Point graduate and former Army captain busted for trafficking heroin from Afghanistan to the U.S. was sentenced Sept. 4 to 10 years in a federal prison.
Saleem Akbar Sharif, 36, of Johns Island, S.C., also agreed to surrender $100,000 in drug profits. He pleaded guilty last year to conspiracy and possession with intent to distribute heroin.”

There is a problem here.

The US government has never admitted that heroin is produced in Afghanistan. They claim only opium paste is produced.

For a West Point graduate to be arrested for making only $100,000 selling narcotics, the crime should have been laziness and inefficiency.

No document has ever admitted any heroin production in Afghanistan, there are no records, and, in particular, not one photograph of any heroin production facility.

The US has never found one, in its “war on drugs.” Similarly, the US never found WMD’s in Iraq or the dozen or more massive underground bunker complexes Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld cited when advocating an American invasion of Afghanistan. In a televised interview with Tim Russert, Rumsfeld spoke of facilities that housed thousands, underground monorails, storage of armored vehicles, entire cities underground. He supplied a graphic, not entirely unlike the cartoon Netanyahu held in his hands while humiliating himself before the UN general assembly in his diatribe about Iran’s nuclear energy program.

But heroin production does exist.

Yet, chemicals used to produce heroin are shipped into Afghanistan at US government expense labeled “dry cleaning supplies.”

The same containers leave through the Pakistani port of Karachi, laden with processed heroin, or so top security officials in Pakistan have told me.

These containers, unnumbered and unregistered, move under the full authority of the United States government.

If you check the Internet, looking for news of anti-drug operations or photographs posted on social network sites, you will never see opium transported, never see heroin processing facilities, never see a container loaded or a plane packed with heroin flown out to NATO headquarters in Brussels to be unloaded.

In a dozen years, there has been no evidence published, none sought and much suppressed.

This is the power of the private and not so private armies that protect and defend the world’s narcotics traffickers, a group which includes political leaders, the US, Canada, Britain, France, Israel, Switzerland, Turkey, certainly Afghanistan but more, so many more.

Heroin trafficking is the lubrication that keeps the wheels of Western politics moving as intended.

To The National Paranoia Agency, We Are All Potential Bad Guys

“We live now in an era where normal values have been displaced. The good is called bad, the bad – good.” – Russian journalist Anna Politkovskaya (assassinated in October 2006).

For the totalitarian National Paranoia Agency (NPA), which is running a massive surveillance program targeting the American and global populations, there are two types of individuals: bad guys and good guys.

Definition of a bad guy = An individual, either in government or in civil society, who is critical of government policies and political leaders.

Definition of a good guy = An individual who sheepishly and mindlessly defends the government’s worst abuses and crimes.

From the NPA’s point of view, a bad guy is not a terrorist, a bad guy is an individual who tells the truth about terrorists. The NPA does not care about stopping the flow of terrorists and arms across borders. President Obama has shipped guns to Mexico, and is funding Jihadist terrorists in Syria.

The NPA does not want informed citizens. It wants brainwashed sheep. But, with heroes like Edward Snowden around, it is getting harder to keep people in the dark.

Bill Gates Retakes World’s Richest Title From Carlos Slim

Bill Gates is once again the world’s richest person.

The 57-year-old co-founder of Redmond, Washington-based Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) recaptured the title from Mexican investor Carlos Slim yesterday, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, as the software maker hit a five-year high. It is the first time Gates has held the mantle since 2007. His fortune is valued at $72.7 billion, up 16 percent year-to-date.

Slim’s America Movil (AMXL) SAB, the largest mobile-phone operator in the Americas, has dropped 14 percent this year after Mexico’s Congress passed a bill that could quash the billionaire’s market dominance. That’s helped erase more than $3 billion from the 73-year-old tycoon’s net worth.

Reality

Reality (Photo credit: Beatnic)

Before I shock you with facts, let me ask you a question: How important is reality to you? That’s a strange question, I know, but think about it for a second. If reality makes you uncomfortable, what should you do?

Should you ignore it? Should you face it anyway? Should you find reasons to get rid of it? Should you attack the person who showed it to you?

You will find nothing in this article about amendments, laws and judges. What you will find here is a fact that has been passed-over by the entire gun control argument.

Here it is; it’s really simple, so think about it for a few seconds:

The anti-gun arguments presume that the state is morally superior to individuals. 

Even though they seldom say it explicitly, the gun control proponents believe that average people are too violent and erratic to hold guns. They want the government – the state – to take our guns away  because only the state is responsible enough to handle serious weapons.

There is, however, a gigantic problem with this: States are far more dangerous than individuals.

That’s a demonstrable fact, by the way, not merely an opinion. I ran the numbers, and it isn’t even close.

According to the UN’s statistics, total number homicides in which guns were involved in 2010 (or the most recent year reported) were 93,414.

I am as sure as I can be that those numbers are juiced – I have too much experience with the UN (another set of stories, for another day) to think that they left their agendas outside as they crunched these numbers – and I am going to ignore the inclusion of thousands of deaths in Mexico and other places that should be attributed to the US War on Drugs. I’ll accept the numbers as they are.

So, let’s say that guns are legitimately and primarily involved in all of these 93,414 cases. Maybe you think that’s a pretty bad argument for the moral superiority of individuals. But if so, take a deep breath and gather your moral courage. You ready?

The death rate for states is more than 20 times as high.

This figure has been well-documented, by the way. If you want to check it, start with political scientist R.J. Rummel’s Book, Death By Government.  (The actual figure may be higher than 200 million.)

So, 93,414 x 100 = 9,341,400 people killed with guns over a century. That’s a bad number, but it’s less than 1/20th of the 200 million who were killed by governments.

Not possible, you say? Sorry, your beliefs are clashing with reality, and your devotion to reality is at risk.

Also, the 200 million deaths attributable to governments were over the course of the entire 20th century, when the average population was far less than what it is now. Population-adjusted, states are probably at least 30 times more deadly than individuals.

If you think I’m misstating this, run the numbers yourself!

You know this from your personal experience too:

How many fistfights have you seen among the 200 people who live closest to you in the past couple of years? Maybe one? Maybe none?

Among the 200 or so states in this world, there have been at least 30 fights over the same time.

The numbers say that states fight much, much more frequently than do individuals. And they certainly kill far more people when they do fight.

By any objective standard, states have to be considered far more aggressive and violent than individuals. So, who is it that should be really holding the weapons?

The usual argument to the contrary, by the way, goes like this:

GuvBoy: Okay, maybe lots of people were killed by governments, but there were different leaders then!

Freethinkin’Boy: And the morals of politicians have improved? Have their operations substantially changed? They still have the same capital city, right? And they still have a small group of men gathering up all the taxes and ordering everyone else around, right?

GuvBoy: Yeah, but now we have modern, enlightened democracies!

Freethinkin’Boy: I see… please tell me this: Precisely how and when did they become enlightened?

GuvBoy: <Silence>

Such arguments, of course, actually have to do with people being irrationally devoted to governments and too afraid to consider otherwise.

If reality were ever to matter, it would be the flawed individuals who got the guns, not the mega-flawed states.
