Money Laundering and The Drug Trade: The Role of the Banks

“Long time observer of the Mexican drug war Bill Conroy comments that the deal cut with HSBC by the Department of Justice, ”should illuminate for all the great pretense of the drug war — no matter how hard US prosecutors, via the mainstream media, attempt to convince us otherwise. …And it should lead us to conclude, if we are honest with ourselves, that the so-called drug war is little more than one immense “drug deal.”

Favorite quotes from yesteryear

“Liberty is not a means to a higher political end. It is itself the highest political end.”         Lord Acton 1834-1902
 
“At all times sincere friends of freedom have been rare”         Lord Acton 1834-1902
 
“Now, if congress and the courts had attempted to obey this amendment, as they were constitutionally bound to do, they would soon have found that they had really no lawmaking power whatever left to them; because they would have found that they could make no law at all, of their own invention that would not violate men’s natural rights.”             Lysander Spooner (1808-1887) on the 9th Amendment to the US Constitution

150 years ago, British historian Thomas Macaulay made this dire prediction for America, “Your civilization will be destroyed in the 20th century, as Rome was in the 5th century. But the huns and vandals which will destroy you will come from within, from your own institutions.”

Tyranny

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”  C. S. Lewis

 

Thomas Sowell “Socialism, in general, has a record of failure so blatant that only an intellectual cretin could ignore or evade it.”

I was recently sent this in an email and was struck by its simplicity and forthrightness I took the liberty of posting it in its entirety. There is much to be said about the wisdom that comes with age and sacrifice. Knowledge is no match for wisdom. Read and take it to heart. If you love America she needs all those who love her to take a stand to save her now more than ever. God Bless America!

Thomas Sowell (born June 30, 1930) is an American economist, social theorist, political philosopher, and author. A National Humanities Medal winner, he advocates laissez-faire economics and writes from a libertarian perspective He is currently a Rose and Milton Friedman Senior Fellow on Public Policy at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. Sowell was born in North Carolina, but grew up in Harlem, New York. He dropped out of high school, and served in the United States Marine Corps during the Korean War. He had received a bachelor’s degree from Harvard University in 1958 and a master’s degree from Columbia University in 1959. In 1968, he earned his doctorate degree in economics from the University of Chicago. Dr. Sowell has served on the faculties of several universities, including Cornell and University of California, Los Angeles, and worked for “think-tanks” such as the Urban Institute. Since 1980 he has worked at the Hoover Institution He is the author of more than 30 books

The following are quotations were attributed to  Dr. Sowell in the email I received:

“The current Occupy Wall Street movement is the best illustration to date of what President Barack Obama’s America looks like. It is an America where the lawless, unaccomplished, ignorant and incompetent rule. It is an America where those who have sacrificed nothing pillage and destroy the lives of those who have sacrificed greatly.

“It is an America where history is rewritten to honor dictators, murderers and thieves. It is an America where violence, racism, hatred, class warfare and murder are all promoted as acceptable means of overturning the American civil society.

“It is an America where humans have been degraded to the level of animals: defecating in public, having sex in public, devoid of basic hygiene. It is an America where the basic tenets of a civil society, including faith, family, a free press and individual rights, have been rejected. It is an America where our founding documents have been shredded and, with them, every person’s guaranteed liberties.

“It is an America where, ultimately, great suffering will come to the American people, but the rulers like Obama, Michelle Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Joe Biden, Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, liberal college professors, union bosses and other loyal liberal/Communist Party members will live in opulent splendor.

“It is the America that Obama and the Democratic Party have created with the willing assistance of the American media, Hollywood , unions, universities, the Communist Party of America , the Black Panthers and numerous anti-American foreign entities.

“Barack Obama has brought more destruction upon this country in four years than any other event in the history of our nation, but it is just the beginning of what he and his comrades are capable of.

“The Occupy Wall Street movement is just another step in their plan for the annihilation of America.

 

Exercise Your Rights or Lose Them

Our founding fathers did not enact the second amendment for hunters, although it protects their right to own guns as well. They enacted the 2nd Amendment to protect the rights of the citizens to own weapons to protect themselves from government tyranny.

The current attempt to argue that it was for hunting is preposterous! At the time the founding fathers enacted the Constitution of the United States and the 2nd Amendment as part of the Bill of Rights guns for hunting were part of everyday life. They would have had no reason to believe that one would need to have their possession of hunting weapons protected. However, they did have experience with tyranny and the need for the citizen to have protection from an over reaching government.

This weekend in Kentucky if you are within driving distance, is a rally where gun-toting Americans can go and exercise that right at the Capitol of the State where it is still legal to open carry your weapons. I don’t live close enough but if I did I would be there. Click here for more information

Want to see the end result of heeding the siren song of gun control whose end aim everywhere it has been implemented is the eventual banning of the ownership of guns by citizens? Get the video Innocents Betrayed and see for yourself the gruesome results of a disarmed citizenry both from their governments and the criminal element of society.

Government Gone Wild! What you don’t know CAN hurt you!

As I write this the FTC is moving to take control of the internet under the guise of net neutrality. I ask – who gets to determine what is neutrality?

Government Gone Wild!!!! There really is no other way to describe what is happening in this great nation. Looking at just the few organizations that I have linked to from my For Patriot’s page you can see how our leaders are constantly chipping away at our freedoms in too many ways all at once making it impossible for the working person to have the time to feed their family and get involved in the fight to push back. It is impossible for any individual to keep track of everything the government is doing on a daily almost hourly basis to intrude, restrict and control our lives. As I find organizations that are trying to push back against this tyranny I try to put them up on this site at least the national ones. I am personally involved in a state organization called the Ohio Project. We collected enough signatures to place a health care freedom act on the Ohio Ballot. Issue 3 is an amendment to the Ohio Constitution that keeps Ohioans from being forced to purchase health care. This, if passed would give the citizens of Ohio the right to opt out of Obama Care. UPDATE- the Health Care Freedom Ammendment was passed in OHIO!!!!

We are not wealthy people so I try I do what I can for the National Organizations. I support them by helping to get the word out for them on this site and other social media. These are some of the organization that I have found that are working to push back against the relentless onslaught of our Government. There is the Fully Informed Jury Association, The Mises Institute, The Tenth Amendment Center, Oath Keepers, GOOOH (get out of our house), Downsize DC and I am sure a host of others that came into existence to push back against the Government Gone Wild Crisis.

What can one person do? I wish I had the answer and some days I just want to throw up my hands and just disconnect from it all. I will keep doing what little I can and hope you will do something for me. If you know of any organization that is fighting the good fight to push back against our government gone wild post a comment to let me know where to find them and I will link to them on this site and promote them with my social media.

Do not give in to evil, but proceed ever more boldly against it. Collectivism is that evil. Stand boldly for individualism. Stand boldly for freedom.
