ghw bush...

is the most despicable man in america!
(next to henry kissinger, that is)

i beg all of you watch this video...at times, a little hokey, but full of truths, if you choose to accept them


thank you, Dr. Ron Paul...you have been a beacon of light in the dark and dangerous march back towards LIBERTY!

its 'cos I owe ya, my young friend...
Rockin' the FREE world in Tennessee since 1957!
9/11 Truth.

Then he rejoined the GOP and was silenced.

I hope those who still think the GOP can be saved pay close attention to this. In the time that Ron Paul was Libertarian, he spoke openly and honestly. During his tenure as a Republican he had to mince words and tiptoe around the truth.Ask yourself "Why?" Do you really think you will reform a party that could silence Ron Paul? This is not to discourage you from staying in the GOP and fighting for truth, it is to discourage you from staying in the GOP and compromising with the snakes in that pit. If you are tempted to stand down on an issue "for the party," please do not. Double down for truth instead.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Well said!

I couldn't agree more.

A brief history of the post WW2 drugs trade


Bringing the story right up to date.

"In the end, more than they wanted freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all -- security, comfort, and freedom. When ... the freedom they wished for was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free."

Clinton's connections to the drugs trade


"In the end, more than they wanted freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all -- security, comfort, and freedom. When ... the freedom they wished for was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free."

A brief history of the recent drugs trade

After WW2 the major source of drugs was the Golden Triangle and the drug of choice was opium/heroin.

Indo China were French/ex French colonies.
It was little wonder that Marseilles became the drugs capital of Europe.

When the French gave up on Indo China in the 50's, America and the CIA moved in.

When America lost the Vietnam war and were kicked out of Indo China, a new source of drugs had to be found.

Colombia and Central America became America's new source of drugs, the drug of choice became cocaine.


Turkey's role in the opium trade.

In Afghanistan now, President Karzai and his family are heavily involved in the opium trade.

There is a whole web of intrigue around the CIA, HW Bush, the drugs trade and money laundering.

The following articles are instructive in putting the drugs trade and drugs money into perspective.

"In the end, more than they wanted freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all -- security, comfort, and freedom. When ... the freedom they wished for was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free."

This video was so sad, I had to go watch the whale video

to recover. For decades this country has been run by the worst people there are. And the country doesn't know. Even when they see these videos they still can't believe.
Ron Paul is truly a hero. I hope America wakes up soon.

Can't unhear.

Can't unhear.

Wow - incredible! It's funny, because Russia did wind up later

doing the same thing - - Putin.


Nothing has changed.

That's one big opium crop that US soldiers are guarding in Afghanistan.


Essentially, “The War on Drugs” is one of the largest government programs ever created to extract money from the American people under the guise of protecting us from ourselves. The cost of “The War on Drugs” , not counting the billions of dollars that are extracted from taxpayers to fund countless agencies like the DEA, and all the other “drug task force” agencies has exceeded 1 Trillion dollars since it began in the middle 70’s. Common sense would indicate that we stop wasting money on a problem that can’t be solved no matter how much money we throw at it and no matter how many government agents we assign to enforce the drug laws. So, in fact, ending “The War on Drugs” would enable our Government to save Billions of dollars each year. Billions that could be used to fund legitimate government programs (assuming such things exist) but instead are funneled to people in power all around the world who “partner” with our covert alphabet agencies to maintain and control the international drug trade. This is why our government does not want to legalize drugs. I can promise you that it has nothing to do with “protecting you from yourself”. In reality, “The War on Drugs” is really “The War on Liberty” and keeping drugs illegal allows the elite to “invest” in an business that makes them millionaires and billionaires. These “investments” and the profits they rake in are staggering. These massive cash reserves are mostly held outside the US in offshore accounts (banks, brokerage firms, and fraudulent corporations) that primarily exist for the purpose of hiding their ill gotten booty. “Son Of BOSS” Tax Avoidance Schemes are common. (The “Son of Boss” Scheme is just one of several Tax Avoidance Schemes that Mitt Romney has been accused of participating in) For more information on “THE SON OF BOSS TAX SHELTERS” this go to this link for a .pdf downloadable paper. http://www.son-of-boss.com/SOB_Docs/Son_of_Boss_Description_...

And for the record, drugs are only illegal for “we the people”. Not only do the elite control the international drug trade to enrich themselves, it also provides them with an endless supply of free drugs for their own recreational use. When was the last time you heard of a politician or a person in a position of power go to jail for smoking pot or snorting cocaine? Think about that as approximately 1.5 million Americans are sitting in cages because of the greed and hypocrisy of the ruling class.

Heroic As Always

He was trying to get the info out there but the internet wasn't what it is now.

Uh-oh, don't tell Jack Hunter.

Dr. Paul obviously pushing a conspiracy theory which means, as we all know, that it isn't true.

"Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it." -- Joseph Goebbels

I can see it now. Jack Hunter smearing Paul in the 80s...

Actual Jack Hunter quotes from 2012 below, except for the parts in [brackets].

"But for [people like Ron Paul], it wasn’t enough that [George Bush] was a big government disaster, they needed that extra reason, some other dubiously evil angle to fully turn [Bush] into the bogey man of their worst nightmares."

"For conservatives, [Bush] is bad. In fact, he's the biggest big-government president to date. Conservatives don't need conspiracy theories to convince them that [Bush's] agenda must be stopped. There is no need to look for secret conspiracies when the damage is being done in plain sight every day."

"Sinister conspiracies happen every day on Capitol Hill... Forget covert operations. Check out the Congressional Record."

"[CIA drug trafficking] conspiracy theorists have become a political handicap. [People like Ron Paul] probably have a few interesting points to make, but this doesn't change the fact that their argument is toxic. It doesn't change the fact that their rhetoric damages conservatives' reputations every time a ['Bush is trafficking drugs' conspiracy theorist] opens his mouth."

"When I hear someone mention ["CIA drug trafficking"] these days, any adult conversation I'd planned on having with them is over. This is not to say that [the CIA's relationship with the Contras] itself is not curious. It is to say that such language is politically toxic. It is to say that mentioning them accomplishes nothing and hurts plenty. It is to ignore the problems that are happening in public all the time. Our debt, loss of liberty, perpetual war, and the emerging police state — these things should be discussed and debated on their own merits without [Iran-Contra] ever being mentioned."
