By Gordon Duff STAFF WRITER/Senior Editor

Republicans and “Tea Party” candidates are expecting to take over congress in a very few days, a “big win” totally underwritten with drug money.  There is no secret about it.

By June, $200 million in “foreign” contributions had already come into the GOP and Tea Party and not one cent of it is accounted for.  It is “corporate” money, money that doesn’t have to be American, doesn’t have to be legal, money that would put any normal American in prison for years if they had one cent in their pockets.

The $200 million is laundered drug money, much from Afghanistan but much also from Mexico, those drug money cartels that are buying America’s Southwest, the same cartels that did so well during the Bush years when the border with Mexico was open and totally unwatched.

You didn’t know that?

Those photographs showing backpacks and trash, abandoned by drug money “mules” and other illegals, the massive flow across the border, you didn’t know those photos were taken between 2001 and 2008?  You didn’t know that, in 8 very long years, the 8 years of the “W” Bush presidency, the number of illegal aliens in the United States doubled?

Now you wonder why the Mexican drug cartels are sending millions into America, all legal and proper “corporate” contributions, nice and clean, laundered just the way the Supreme Court wants it, drug money to keep their business growing, reopen the border, money to guarantee them favorable courts, friendly “law enforcement” and a return to “business as usual.”

The majority of the cash, however, originates from Afghanistan.  Not from the country itself, but from the $65 billion dollar a year heroin industry created from nothing after the US invasion of Iraq.  America joined with the drug money cartels of the Northern Alliance to remove the Taliban.  You remember the Taliban, the group that wanted too much of a percentage from the American oil companies who were planning a pipeline through Afghanistan, the same Taliban that eliminated opium production entirely?

Drug Money Made from American Fertilizer

Now the opium is being processed right there in Afghanistan, heroin made from opium grown with American fertilizer in fields protected by American soldiers, fields controlled by war lords working closely with the CIA and America’s military commanders in the region who make sure Russia, Europe and America have that needle in the arm and stay hooked for another generation.

Vietnam was a drug war as were the Reagan era phony wars in Central America.  You can’t turn on the TV without seeing it in a movie.  Movies aren’t always right but whenever you see Stephen Seagal or Chuck Norris stomp a drug money baron, we only wish they were doing it for real.

What is this election going to create?  Never in American history has foreign money been allowed this freely into the United States.  Japan, Saudi Arabia, Germany and Israel have typically spent the most and bought the most power.  Then came China.  They began buying politicians too, a million here, a hundred thousand there.

There is a lot of reasons to invest in a new congress.  If the war in Afghanistan ends, drugs won’t move freely.  If torture and rendition end, those planes that fly prisoners around won’t be able to carry the tons of heroin around the world too.  Isn’t part of the plan to make heroin so cheap that millions of Russians will be addicted?  Isn’t this part of the secret CIA plan also?

Drug Money War Being Taken Over By Terrorists

Isn’t all that drug money keeping Afghanistan from being taken over by terrorists?  This is what Ambassador Richard Holbrooke keeps telling us, keep the drugs flowing and America will be safe, safe except for that addict who just kicked down your door.

Over $1.2 billion will be spent on the upcoming election, over a billion to fund the jobs of 200 legislators whose income wouldn’t cover two days interest on that money.  Can you smell that smell, that rotten “government” smell?  Money used to come from big oil, crooked banks, pharma and nutty billionaires with names like Buffett and Scaife or perhaps DeVos.

Now the money is from drug cartels, mercenary armies and huge drug money laundering banks, brought in by the carload, open and free, no laws can control it.  All that is needed is a corporation, and that can be done in some states for 15 bucks.  Corporations can take foreign assets, send them to the United States, assets from any source, legal or illegal, and transfer those assets to a political party.

This year 90% of the drug money is going to the Republicans.  I wonder what is is buying?  I suspect Americans will eventually find out.

    in California the liberal left loons will use drug money to get more liberals into office to make sure the whole state is drug legal…

    it is not gaining here, as there are still enough sane people to say no to legalizing drugs..

    it’s just to bad there are too many liberal nuts who continue to vote in the worst of the worst liberal nuts..

  2. Equalizer  October 21, 2010 at 11:13 pm

    g, “Judicial Watch” NOT U.S. Judicial Foundation…don’t know who that is. JW is Tom Fitton’s organization…I especially appreciated JW’s work on exposing the corruption in California’s Superior Court System…I’ve seen the cronyism there first-hand…so I’m headed to appellate…superior court are a bunch of double-dippers (probably triple!)

    Fitton needs some lessons on Israel, but has a handle on immigration, corruption (corruption county florida, etc.)…

  3. Penumbra  October 20, 2010 at 11:25 pm

    And yes, a fair number of those in the group(s), especially at the highest levels are Luciferian (the “Torch Bearer”, Angel of Light, etc.) by conviction. Thus the often mocked notion of the “Illuminati” (the “Enlightened Ones”). They perceive supremacy in fields of earthly knowledge as illumination, while their souls are steeped in darkness and self-delusion.

  4. Penumbra  October 20, 2010 at 11:20 pm

    What they know is group collusion and according to each or each “faction” whatever specializations they determine necessary to the furtherance of their ideological goal (One World Government, One World Finance, One World Medical/Eugenics/et al, One World Law Enforcement/societal control, Media perception management, etc).

    As technology advances, they with the means at their disposal are able to groom appropriate “experts” in a field (or establish the field altogether) and let it grow to achieve calculated systemic ends.

    Sure they have known that those in the ongoing process at any one moment in time may not live to see its culmination, but they reap the fruits of its progression nonetheless and live in luxury/impunity, so what do they care so long as the agenda progresses. For the ideologue, the individual means nothing, the agenda is paramount. Take the detailed injunctions set out by Mayer Amschel Rothschild to his sons before his death as prime example of this legacy thinking.

    This is the advantage they have over the masses who, thinking only in the moment, cannot fathom that others could think in such far reaching fashion simply because neither they nor anyone they might know thinks that way (to their knowledge).

    This is also why the marginalizing label of “conspiracy theorist” has such uncritically accepted purchase in the public psyche. Unless one has experienced life amongst the aspirants to power, one takes at face value the rhetoric of concern expressed so often by this or that elite. But the sociopathy that drives the aspirant to power becomes evident through their narcissism and periodic wreckless arrogance, if one waits and watches.

    Sufficient numbers have not watched nor do they watch even now, making it so easy for powermongers to further their goals in plain sight.

  5. wolf  October 20, 2010 at 9:54 pm

    Exactly…like the frog in pot of boiling water simile.
    But tell me. WHO functions this way? It seems somehow not human, this multi-generational, incremental conspiracy. The players take actions during their lifetime that contribute to the ultimate goal of one world government that won’t be achieved until long after they are gone.

    Are they proud of playing their part in keeping humanity down…in creating this evil dystopia? Do they do it because they think their dark lord will reward them in the afterlife? They are extremely intelligent in a diabolical way. Makes you wonder what they know that WE don’t?

    BTW, I had to look it up. Dystopia: a society characterized by human misery, as squalor, oppression, disease, and overcrowding.

  6. Penumbra  October 20, 2010 at 11:34 am

    Such is the power of concerted incrementalist subversion. What would cause immediate uprising if imposed in the moment is otherwise ignored if carefully inculcated into the public psyche as “business as usual” over generations.

    This has been the hallmark of dynasties like the Rothschilds, Rockefellers, Carnegies, et al. to undermine and eventually down the road overturn the founding precepts of this nation (indeed all nations) with the unwitting masses cheering it on all the way. That is, until the real end game becomes painfully obvious as it begins to kick in the doors of those same masses.

    Welcome to the dystopia.

    Did the Rockefellers steal the gold in Ft. Knox?

    Quote: “It’s a long time ago, and it hardly can be found in the archives of the Los Angeles Times (Owner Zell*) or anywhere on Internet, but on Friday, July 19 in 1974, the Los Angeles Times published an article on the probably disappeared gold in Ft. Knox, making the ‘gold reserve’ one of those US american ‘great illusions’… It turned into ‘fiat gold’!”

  15. Penumbra  October 19, 2010 at 10:39 am

    I refer to the District of Columbia Organic Act of 1871. This began the process of incorporation of what was intended to be a voluntary federated body of Sovereign States into Corp USA, owned by foreign banking interests and fully indentured through debt to their will.

    the original organic Constitution wasn’t destroyed in the process but it was superseded by a similarly worded (albeit with subtle differences) corporate charter. Getting back to an understanding of the switch that was pulled in this process will help to make clear why the system has consistently failed to serve the people despite campaign promises and sworn oaths of office through the generations from then till the present.



  16. jonathan mark  October 19, 2010 at 8:18 am

    Thank you Fayyaz.. It is good to know that it is a National Plant of Pakistan. I believe, also, all drugs should be decriminalized.. and treated not as a legal but as a health issue. At least some democracy is at work in the USA, this November California is having a referendum vote to legalize and tax marijuana, which would help that state and impact criminal drug dealers in a significant way. This is why the Obama justice department is fighting against this state-rights act.

  17. SMaj  October 19, 2010 at 3:41 am

    Check the Washington Post concerning the issue of the money situation. I remember distinctly the Am Legion magazine, the VFW magazine mentioning the issue of the disabled veteran issue or the question by Obama about charging for prescriptions. Are you also stating that Acorn was lilly white and shaky things were not going on with them and could you prove that they were clean of no wrong doings regardless of the phony people who posed as a pimp and hooker?

  18. Lem G.  October 19, 2010 at 1:42 am

    It is the go-betweens that help launder the drug cartels profits in both Mexico & AFGN that make tracking the flow of money difficult for the average investigative reporters. People disappear. Private security firms are getting more work than they can handle ensuring some AFGN officials and warlords are kept away from public access. The CIA got extremely good at this sort of thing in the golden triangle during the IndoChina Cultural Exchange Program. The system in place was SO good,
    that its been repeated in Mexico and for the last several years in AFGN.
    People should not be surprised that the net excess profits are going into those candidates who look the other way when it comes to who is making their donations.

  19. wolf  October 19, 2010 at 1:40 am

    Yes even worse. Thanks for the update.

    Penumbra, I’ve seen you reference the year 1871 before in your comments as to marking the beginning of the end for America and I searched it once and came up with “The Force Act” which gave the prez the power to use the military to combat domestic terrorism…if I got that right. I assume that is what you were referring to?

  20. Penumbra  October 19, 2010 at 1:18 am

    Actually, wolf, what FDR did was NOT by means of any bill (i.e. Congressionally debated and enacted legal process), but rather by unilateral Executive Order 6501. This made it even more an act of outright treason against both the people and the Constitution insofar as Executive orders, by nature, are neither law nor are they to have any direct bearing upon the citizenry, being as they are orders purely for agents and officers directly employed by the Federal Government.

    This was a dictatorial act of theft pure and simple.

  21. wolf  October 19, 2010 at 1:07 am

    “Our power has been created through the manipulation of the national monetary system. We authored the quotation. ‘Money is power.’ As revealed in our master plan, it was essential for us to establish a private national bank. The Federal Reserve system fitted our plan nicely since it is owned by us, but the name implies that it is a government institution. From the very outset, our purpose was to confiscate all the gold and silver, replacing them with worthless non-redeemable paper notes. This we have done!”

    “Prior to 1968, the gullible goy could take a one dollar Federal Reserve note into any bank in America and redeem it for a dollar which was by law a coin containing 412 1/2 grains of 90 per cent silver. Up until 1933, one could have redeemed the same note for a coin of 25 4/5ths grains of 90 per cent gold. All we do is give the goy more non-redeemable notes, or else copper slugs. But we never give them their gold and silver. Only more paper,” he said contemptuously. “We Jews have prospered through the paper gimmick. It’s our method through which we take money and give only paper in return.”

    –Harold Rosenthal
    (from an interview with Walter White Jr. 1976)

  22. wolf  October 19, 2010 at 12:40 am

    Yes vinnie I think you are correct. It looks like they made off with it in another well orchestrated multi-generational scam.

    In 1933 new President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed a bill forcing all the American people, to hand over all their gold at base rate, with the exception of rare coins. He disowned himself from the bill claiming to not have read it and his secretary of the treasury claimed this was “what the experts wanted”.

    Bought at bargain basement prices with money produced from nothing by the Federal Reserve, the gold was melted down and stacked in the newly built bullion depository called Fort Knox. Once collected in 1935 the price of gold was raised from $20.66 up to $35 per ounce, but only non American gold qualified to be sold. This meant those who had avoided the crash by investing in gold they had shipped to London could now nearly double their money while the rest of America starved.

    But that’s not all folks. By the end of WWII Fort Knox did hold 70% of the world’s gold, but over the years it was sold off to the European money changers while a public audit of Fort Knox reserves was repeatedly denied.

    In 1981 President Ronald Reagan was convinced to have a look into Fort Knox with a view to re-introducing the Gold Standard. He appointed a group called The Gold Commission. They found that the US Treasury owned no gold at all.

    All the Fort Knox gold remaining is now being held as collateral by the Federal Reserve against the national debt. Using credits made from nothing. The Fed had robbed the largest treasure of gold on earth.

  23. allovertheplace  October 18, 2010 at 11:06 pm

    Absolutely correct. The basis of all value is labor. In fact money equals labor in value. But thus is not how the federal reserved money system is designed. It is designed so that a cadre of ‘experts’ can ‘manage’ the economy and, essentially, force the free market to become subject to them. Money is paper. But people work for it, kill for it. There is the power.

  24. Penumbra  October 18, 2010 at 9:24 pm

    AS, if you read G. Edward Griffin’s “Creature from Jeckyll Island” he argues that when the standard has been reestablished throughout history, even in cases where the particular nation had previously been divested of gold, the gold stocks returned quickly.

    So long as the nation demands gold payment for its transnational commerce, the balance of payment is restored fairly quicker.

  25. Anonymous Smith  October 18, 2010 at 9:03 pm

    Wouldn’t it be prudent to first make sure that we actually have gold in our treasury vaults before we start talking about returning to the gold standard?

  26. Gordon Duff  October 18, 2010 at 8:46 pm

    prove it

  27. SMaj  October 18, 2010 at 8:08 pm

    Another thing Dan, The Washington Post reported in their paper that the Democrats received more money for campaign issues from overseas sources than the Republicans did. But yet his highness Obama, who can’t prove a bloody thing, say the Chamber of Commerce gets all kinds of money from foreign sources.

  28. kenneth  October 18, 2010 at 7:26 pm

    what article are you reading? he states that all political parties are receiving laundered drug money, but the gop, and tea party are getting a bigger cut. you are living in a naive world if you think any movement, any revolution is being financed by the chumps standing there holding the signs, the same ones soon to be holding the bag.

  29. Ken Rechtstein  October 18, 2010 at 7:15 pm

    Except for the MONEY the Federal Reserve PRINTS out of the blue… Drugs-Bubbles-Financial Frauds-Arms Deals: all provenue from said activities goes into lining the pockets of the Zion Talmudic Mafia Dons. Same do the taxes, we pay. It’s the perfect racket, feeds the same tribe and its assets-agents in Gov- Congress-Senate-Pentagon-Academia-Agencies… As long as the FED is in the hands of the banksters, same vicious circle will prevail…

  30. Gordon Duff  October 18, 2010 at 5:28 pm

    Your political analysis is interesting, not informed, not accurate, not even intelligent. Ok, it isn’t interesting anyway. The question should be, “Why is the GOP in bed with the drug cartels?” Riddle me that one, don’t just parrot Fox News for me.
    Bush destroyed America. Obama has been too gutless to arrest him and stop his policies.
    Maybe Obama is somewhat like Bush.
    I will be you voted for Bush twice.

  31. Dan  October 18, 2010 at 5:26 pm

    Patrick, without backing by gold, money is what you say it is. Being backed by labor assumes that the unit of currency has some stability, such that the due from one’s labors is not diluted through inflation. At present, the true rate of inflation is 8.5%. The fact that the government says it’s 1.7% proves they are cheating all of us blind.

    The purchasing power of the dollar you earned just one year ago is worth about ninety-one cents today. By the end of next year, and barring some dramatic turnaround, it is reasonable to anticipate a dollar earned today will only purchase what eighty-five cents does today. The point is often made that only half of wage earners pay any federal income taxes, but this is totally misleading because of inflation. With inflation in prices of, say, 15% by this time next year, even those at the bottom of the wage scale will be paying the “stealth tax,” a flat tax of 15%–and that’s before they pay any regular income tax, state tax, sales tax, and the hundreds of other consumption taxes that fall hardest on the lower middle class.

    To Fayyaz, RE: marijuana legalization…California hates competition!

  33. Patrick Sullivan  October 18, 2010 at 4:49 pm

    Money without labor can be used for paper training puppies.

    Money plus labor can be used for paper training politicians.

    As soon as labor gets its head straight, it will return the power to issue money to the people; where it rightly belongs.

    Without labor, money is colored paper with pretty pictures and funny symbols on it.

  34. Fayyaz Shah  October 18, 2010 at 4:37 pm

    If you want to eradicate Opium legalize Marijuana after all its the National Plant of Pakistan growing just about everywhere and let the countries that have already legalized order directly from farmers who have substituted.

  35. Fayyaz Shah  October 18, 2010 at 4:26 pm

    The rotten smell of the “Governments” installed by the Republicans in Pakistan and Afghanistan can be felt in the Middle East. This is when the labor intensive Drug trade has suddenly gone industrialized.

  36. Eyeball Kid  October 18, 2010 at 4:19 pm

    It’s an attractive premise about which to write, but there’s no proof that the hundreds of millions in cash is from drug money. There’s no proof about most of the money going into the GOP’s fundraising, thanks to the Citizens United ruling, is from anywhere at all. So, on the one hand, Duff is engaging in irresponsible journalism. But he raises an important question about accountability. It SHOULD be up to the election process to identify donors, but the process has deteriorated, thanks to a hapless Congress and a downright destructive Supreme Court.

    I hope that Duff’s article doesn’t get very far, because its poor journalism can be used as a red herring by the monied interests who want to continue to rake in millions from unidentified sources. Right now, only our feeble Congress can initiate a disclosure law. And if it doesn’t get passed before January, it will never happen. And if it never happens, good bye America, because after that, it will all be about sustaining an empty myth, of hoping that all of us will live with the lie that the Constitution is the law of the land.

  37. Dave White  October 18, 2010 at 4:09 pm

    I really belive you Mr. Duff are an extreme left wing democrat, and personally If the GOP and the tea party are recieving money from outsiders then you can bet your butt so is Obummer and the left wing Democrats. And the proff of the pudding is in “Why is Obummer and staff fighting the Az law on illegals” the bill is based on present federal law, yet the Obummer administration is using our tax dollar to go after AZ and is stating through folks such as you that AZ is wrong in what they are doing. So I ask you why are the Democrats trying to lay off that the Rep and the tea party are using drug money, when its very evident that they are not likeing the idea of sharing the money that they are recieving and using to destroy the country and the american way of life.

  38. Ron Paul 2012  October 18, 2010 at 4:07 pm

    I’ve looked over his platform, he plays a tricky word game when it comes national defense and Israel. I wouldn’t go as far as to say he has his nose up Israels ass, it’s to soon to tell.

    Clearly he is not his father, but he is closer to the real Tea Party platform than most. There are always going to be subtle variations. I’m curious to see what his real voting record would be if he gets elected.

    If he sucks we’ll just kick him out on his ass.

  43. Equalizer  October 18, 2010 at 2:49 pm

    OK, While googling “California Statute on Cronyism” this presented first:

    Congressional Record-House, vol. 151, Pt. 18; November 03, 2005; pages 24832-3.

    …”We were Federalized when we were elected. So, if folks feel, oh well, I am here or here, and I do not need to worry about that, you are a Member of the United States Congress. You are a Member of the 109th Congress, and you have a responsibility to lead.”

    “If you do not want to lead, I am going to tell you something, as sure (as) my name is Congressman Meek. I feel that the American people Democrat, Republican, Independent alike, and even going back to what the gentleman was talking about. 224 years of individuals that were fiscally responsible, the Whig Party, okay, THESE INDIVIDUALS WILL RISE UP TO MAKE SURE THAT WE PROTECT OUR COUNTRY (THE CAPS ARE MY INCLUSION).”

    “Mr. Ryan of Ohio. Do you know why? Because the kids have to pay this debt, that $8 TRILLION (CAPS-MINE), they are not just Republican kids, they are not just Democratic kids, they are kids born in the United States of American.”

    “Mr. Delahunt. Do you know what the tragedy of this is? Let us put aside for a moment indictments and discussions of who might be indicted in the future or misconduct that violates criminal statutes.”

    “What is truly unfortunate here is that we have reached a point where there is a culture that exists here in Washington where if there is disagreement, if there is dissent, that it is described as unpatriotic.”

    “We have heard that I think earlier this evening on the floor, the inference being that if there is any dissent or disagreement, somehow motives can be inferred that that courageous individual, in my judgement, who speaks out in opposition is somehow unpatriotic.”…

    …”But what has happened is no, let us design a plan to impugn that individual’s integrity. Let us try to destroy that individual. Let us try to discredit him or her. That is not what democracy is about. In fact, today I read the White House had prepared a series of talking points attacking the former National Security Advisor, Brent Scowcroft, who recently went public in saying that the policies of this Bush Administration as it relates to Iraq and the Middle East are a failure.”

  46. Equalizer  October 18, 2010 at 1:51 pm

    I would also have my car blow up.

  49. Ron Paul 2012  October 18, 2010 at 10:13 am

    The only person that comes close to the real Tea Party is Rand Paul and maybe 1 or 2 others.

    The rest are just Neocon infiltrators.
    Sorry to shatter your reality.

  50. Ron Paul 2012  October 18, 2010 at 10:09 am

    You said:

    “If the war in Afghanistan ends, drugs won’t move freely.”

    True, but there is an estimated 10 year stockpile of opium already, I doubt it’s still in Afghanistan.

    Secondly, considering Jeb Bush is the man behind the scenes doing Republican fund raising this article is not surprising.

  51. Dan  October 18, 2010 at 9:34 am

    Gordon, I don’t see there’s evidence of a trail of drug money into the coffers of the Tea Party, of all things, or to Republicans, particularly as opposed to Democrats. As bad as both parties are, there’s is more than enough money stolen the old fashioned way on Wall Street, or through payoffs to political groups, to buy off the narcissists who float to the top of the human sewage in party politics.

    The headline that should be screaming from the Internet these days is that the United States of America is totally bankrupt and its debt about to implode, taking us all down with it. Mark Englund has a very good article today on Lew Rockwell with a simple table of the federal government’s balance sheet. It is staggering to look at, that the bastards in Congress and this and the past administration have betrayed the American people to this extent. I keep trying to do my part, as laughably inconsequential as it may be, by pointing out that our government is counterfeiting the money to pay our armies. The mechanism is straightforward accounting gimmickry. The Federal Reserve is buying the Treasury’s debt. I don’t think people realize this means our government is destroying our country, with the full complicity of Congress. The demand for this toilet-paper grade paper crap called Treasuries is insufficient to float it, so the government, via the Fed, simply counterfeits the dollars to buy up the slack. Inflation will skyrocket, and there’s no amount of lies about it that will be contained with bogus economic reporting. I hope our troops, who must already know they’re fighting and dying for Israel, finally wake up and realize they’re being paid with money that is in every respect being stolen from the very families and communities they mistakenly believe they’re protecting. I say stolen because countless millions of those families have lost every bit of equity in their houses, not due to market dynamics, but entirely because of government and Wall Street theft. To the extent that food prices have gone up a minimum of 7% this year, some say more, that increase in price is due to a decrease in the purchasing power of those dollars, also due to government and Wall Street theft.

    While I look forward to your unique insights into the gov’s involvement in the production and trade in drugs, we need to focus on that out-of-control fire that’s raging in our basement, which most of us don’t see or smell, which will burn down our house with us inside. This is the end game. We are going down. The best scenario has our standard of living reduced to Depression era levels with modest civil unrest over several years, like the frog-in-boiling-water simile. The likely scenario is a total collapse of the demand for Treasury debt and collapse of the dollar, as the Fed desperately counterfeits dollars to keep the government and military afloat until we have been used up and thrown under the bus. An attack on Iran could be the trigger, as China, Japan, and the other Asian nations, which are totally dependent on Gulf oil, sell their Treasuries and dollar holdings to buy oil at any price to avoid going down with us. The trigger is in Asia, while those holding the insurance policy and who will collect big time when the dollar implodes are right here in this country, working in DC and on Wall Street. Soros, for one, bet big time on a Marxist-like takeover, trying to recreate the enslavement of our country as was done in Russia nearly a century ago. He now sees that bet was lost and has turned to saving himself by betting against the dollar like there’s no tomorrow–because there isn’t unless the Republicans can reverse the policies of this and the past administration. Fat chance of that.

    And thanks again to Michael Leon for posting the latest article by Paul Craig Roberts.

    in part yes.. but also the drug trade is financing black operations.. those special operation military missions that go off the books, and enable the shadow government (and contractors) to betray our nation and world in all sorts of (sic) ways.

    I hear talk of a big march this July 4th to unite Muslims and those aware of the 9/11 crimes and cover-up to call for truth..

    Drugs huh? Drug money? I hate drugs and drug money. I left Texas in part because of it and came to Washington State six years ago without any real delusions that it would be all that much better there. The government and that ‘rotten government smell’? When did it EVER smell all that great folks? The ‘Great American Dream’? I kinda gave up on that after my general LIFE (for all practical purposes) WAS CONFISCATED back in 85 in a small chickens__t Texas town. It had nothing really to do with drugs but everything to do with Politics. Politics? Oh yeah, that REALLY ROTTEN GOVERNMENT SMELL…POLITICS. Republicans? Democrats? Tea Partiers? Yeah, that REALLY ROTTEN POLITICAL SMELL… POLITICS? GOVERNMENT? CORRUPTION? AVARICE? GREED? FASCIST COMPETITION EVEN FOR McDONALD JOBS? Man, pursuit of the AMERICAN DREAM is All but Dead unless one is a GATES, SOROS, BUFFET, PICKENS, or another comparable AMERICAN BILLIONARE. I wonder who’ll be the first TRILLIONARE?
    Even if one does not believe in God the Biblical Scriptural Texts (and not only the Christian, Judaistic, or Muslim works but others as well) a person can actually glean some WISDOM out of some of it. We pride ourselves as the Most Educated and Informed People on Earth with our INTERNET ACCESS which is True however, having All of that Knowledge WITHOUT HAVING WISDOM Won’t do Us any GOOD. When was the last time that AMERICA (Collectively) EXHIBIT TRUE WISDOM as a SOCIETY? Somehow I don’t recall this ever really happening in a Truely Lasting Way. Oh,…and the Remember, “The Love of Money (Power) Is the ROOT of ALL what?”

    Leave it to a Liberal to blame the teaparty now for using drug money. Outrageous as it is at least you aren’t calling them rascist drug money peddlers. I think you are digging deep into your own sewage pit by claiming teapartiers are buying congressmen/women with drug money, I personally know plenty of teapartiers and if you think they are what you state, well then you must be doing too many drugs yourself. Ur Barking up the wrong poppy field here.

    I agree that there will be a new government soon, same old corrupt seatwarmers as before but just more of the rightwing than the left.
    The Republicans will have lost power for just 2 years and a lost a president for just 4 years.
    All we need right now is another Bush/Cheney cabal.

    The scenario about the drugs and the content of this article by Gordon must be right. How come every time you see a picture of the US troops in Afghanistan they are close to or walking through a field of poppies. And from these crops come the money that enables the Taliban to buy weapons and power in the region to kill your Nato soldiers.

    Surely, they must know that as well? Now that would be an interesting question for Gordon to ask with his connections. How many soldiers know what is going on? How many know the big picture of drug growing, distribution and military protection?
    If so, how do their superiors represent it to the soldiers satisfaction? How can their be any satisfactory explanation for the troops?

    I am not arguing with Gordon. This has seemed obvious to me for some time. But, what do the soldiers think is going on?

    I am certain that it would not be considered unreasonable for any soldier to know for what his life is worth to his country.

    If you eliminate the criminals, it would be 5 supreme court justices, everyone taking the money…they all know where it comes from.
    You want to see someone turn down free money?

  57. stevor  October 18, 2010 at 12:35 am

    If this new money is “unaccounted for”, then the new folks don’t know where it came from and thus wouldn’t feel they were bought with drug money. So, they have no reason to feel they owe anything to the heroin folks.

    So, I guess I’ll just leave my usual question: “what will Obummer change in regard to this?”
