Drugs are an endemic and organic feature of American life, a scourge whose sponsors are America’s elite who copied the British example of the opium trade. The rise of the drug cartels began with Prohibition whose supporters were the blueblood elite of Wall Street.
Contrary to what most Americans believe, the United States government is not opposed to drugs and their distributions. Rather, it only opposes competitors. So if you are involved in drug dealing, but are not under the control of the US government and its rulers, you will soon find yourself wiped out as became the fate of the Medellin Cartel when it crossed with the Bush Crime Syndicate (BCS).
The drug culture started with Prohibition when leading foundations such as the Russell Sage Foundation, the Rockefellers, and Women’s Christian Temperance Union agitated to bring about the 18th Amendment. The Astors, Vanderbilts, Rockefellers, Warburgs, and other plutocratic elite hired these organizations - often without their witting understanding - to agitate for criminalization of alcohol.
But these sponsors had no concern whatsoever for the welfare of those who succumbed to the ravages of drink. Their concern was for control of the liquor business, but more importantly, the establishment of organized crime as another arm of its invisible government.
The plutocrats have two effective branches of government – the CIA, NSA, and other elements of what is euphemistically termed the “intelligence community”, and organized crime. Indeed, notorious crime boss Myer Lansky stated that the CIA and organized crime are two sides of the same coin.
Perhaps the most famous collaboration of the two branches of plutocratic government was the murder of President John Kennedy executed by the CIA and the Mob. It also explains why J Edgar Hoover spent precious little effort – if any at all – pursuing organized crime. It is true that there were a couple of high profile cases in the 1930s associated with the FBI, but this merely represented the resolution of turf wars rather than any fundamental opposition to organized crime.
There is substantial evidence that Hoover had significant social relationships with crime bosses, further explaining his see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil policy towards the mob.
Prohibition was a huge success for the plutocrats as it raised profit margins on their product, and proliferated organized crime throughout the country, which in turn allowed them to branch out into gambling and even many legitimate businesses.
As Sherman Skolnick puts it, it raised tolerance for criminals as it put the mob into every day contact with millions of Americans. But the enmeshing wasn’t just with the lower tiers of society. The Rockefeller controlled University of Chicago supplied much intellectual talent to the mob under the guise of social studies programs, one such neophyte being Saul Alinsky (1909-1972) who was for several years an accountant for the mob according to Skolnick. Alinsky was influential in both the Clinton and Soetoro political fortunes.
While the mob sponsored drug trade began in earnest in the 1950s, it was not until the 1960s that the Bush Crime Syndicate (BCS) working through the CIA professionalized it, and began to consolidate it under US government auspices. One of the side benefits of the Vietnam War for the CIA and its handlers was the massive drug profits. So ravenous were the plutocrats for its lucre that it sent tons of drugs back to the United States in the corpses of GIs.
The Mena, Arkansas drug trade was but the tip of the iceberg in a series of drug centers which stretched across the southern USA confirmed by veteran Washington reporter Sarah McClendon. In the 1990s she related that the Bush Crime Syndicate operated a string bases from Florida to Arizona through which arms were exported in exchange for drugs. One of the most famous persons in this government sponsored activity was Barry Seal whose story made it to the Wall Street Journal in a rare defiance of the Establishment.
The War on Drugs was a façade to destroy competition to Bush Crime Syndicate operations. It not only jacked up drug prices and margins, but it put out of business competitors to the BCS, at whose center was the CIA. The law was only applied to competitors.
More recently, Dr Jim Willie has reported on the extensive escort services of the United States Coast Guard and various military contractors such as Grumman to smuggle drugs into the country. His most explosive revelation was the story, confirmed by multiple sources, that George Bush, Sr bailed out Bank of America in 2010 with his massive stash of drug money which he has been accumulating since the 1960s.
Willie states matter of factly that all major US banks stay afloat due to either money laundering for the BCS/CIA drug trade or to financing its operations, although with the enormous profitability, it is hard to imagine the need for much financing.
One of the unstated goals of the Iraq war was to take over the drug trade. Heroin is produced in Afghanistan, shipped to US bases in Europe, where the Vatican launders the money, then shipped to various destination in Europe and the USA.
The common thread throughout this historical development is the guiding and protecting hand of the plutocrats who use the drug laws to create the largest incarcerated population in the world, and to finance their quests to rule the world.
