Each year, the United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime releases a report covering opium production around the world and in Afghanistan, the world’s leading producer of illicit Opiates. Opium production within the Afghan borders has been on the rise since 2001, when the United States invaded the country and usurped Taliban control of the state (the Taliban had completely eradicated poppy production in a single year). In 2014, while yield was slightly off-peak, the land area used to grow Afghanistan’s most popular and lucrative crop has never been higher.

Poppy fields presently cover 224,000 hectares of land in the embattled country; equating to over 20% of the total cultivated land area of the country. That’s right – over 1/5 of Afghan farm land is dedicated to providing the rest of the world with opium-derived substances. To put that into perspective, consider that 224,000 hectares is enough poppy fields to fill either Israel or Haiti completely. Or almost the entirety of the smaller Caribbean Islands. New York City (78,550 hectares), one of the most populous cities in the world could be covered almost 3x over with Afghan poppy fields. In fact, New York AND Los Angeles could easily be covered in 2014’s growing area. Poppy fields are so commonplace in Afghanistan, it’s almost impossible to not have seen the pictures (more) (even more) of US Soldiers passing through waist-high Poppy during patrols over the past several years.

Despite the clarity of the UN report, when it comes to US politicians addressing the endless, costly, unjust war on drugs, everyone is seen scratching their heads like the drugs are coming from an enigmatic source in a distant galaxy. It’s clear to just about every informed person on the planet that something fishy is going on in Afghanistan.  The UN report outlines where the opium is grown, who grows it, how much grows, which dates it is harvested and how it leaves the country. Despite this wealth of information, the United States, one of the predominant leaders in the international war(s)-on-ideologies (drugs & terror) has been out-smarted and out-farmed by the simple, tribal peoples of Afghanistan. Poppy fields flourish year after year, with eradication efforts declining significantly (-63% from previous year in 2014). It would seem that Afghan opium (processed into morphine, then heroin or counterfeit prescription pills for foreign markets) is a yet another problem that is not meant to be solved. Annihilating global narcotics trafficking organizations, the markets they serve and the terrorists they fund apparently isn’t a high priority.  The United States would rather wait until billions in drug-profits are transformed into machine guns, bombs, RPGs and convoys of Toyotas (filled with angry, sociopathic maniacs) before they take action. Instead of tearing down fields of Poppies (something the pre-9/11 Taliban was able to accomplish in a single growing season), they send soldiers overseas to fight battles in Iraq and Afghanistan that now need to be re-fought. Narcotics profits have been the single biggest boon to terror organizations and policymakers have yet to figure out that narco-terror is a hydra who’s heads will keep regrowing unless the source of power is destroyed once and for all. Within our government, allegedly exists the top minds in law, policy, and essentially, problem-solving. Yet, when faced with the challenge of international networks of money, drugs and weapons over the past 50 years, they are made to look inept. Meanwhile, the American people look on in horror, mouths agape, wondering…”are they doing this on purpose?”

One only has to look into the history of state-complicity in drug trafficking to answer that question…but for now, look into the UNODC Afghan Opium Survey graphics. The full report is worth a read and available online, here.   Continue reading

America: #1 In Fear, Stress, Anger, Divorce, Obesity, Anti-Depressants, Etc.

The Great American Depression

great_depression

In modern America, present day, you will find a society that subjects people to conditions which cause them to be profoundly unhappy on a daily, weekly and monthly basis.  It does nothing to improve these conditions and instead offers various pills and consumerist escapism as solutions. It is no surprise, then, that in these conditions, fear, stress, anger, divorce, obesity, depression and hopelessness are common emotions, often suppressed by a heavy regiment of drugs to make life bearable. Perhaps human beings were not meant to live like this. Perhaps the REST of the world has it right, and America, #1 in these negative responses to a dismal life of emptiness, is not the shining example it is made out to be.

The United States is a deeply unhappy place.  We are a nation that is absolutely consumed by fear, stress, anger and depression.  It isn’t just our economy that is falling apart – the very fabric of society is starting to come apart at the seams and it is because of what is happening to us on the inside.  The facts and statistics that I am going to share with you in this article are quite startling.  They are clear evidence that America is a nation that is an advanced state of decline.  We are overwhelmed by fear, stress and anxiety, and much of the time the ways that we choose to deal with those emotions lead to some very self-destructive behaviors.  Americans have experienced a standard of living far beyond the wildest dreams of most societies throughout human history, and yet we are an absolutely miserable people.  Why is this?  Why is America #1 in so many negative categories?  Why are we constantly looking for ways to escape the pain of our own lives?  Why are our families falling apart?  There is vast material wealth all around us.  So why can’t we be happy?

ALERT! Monsanto ‘Rider’ Slips Through Senate – Time Running Out!

STOP THE MONSANTO PROTECTION ACT!

Sign the petition at the above link!!

The rider (Sec. 735) that would prevent courts from halting illegally planted GM crops (sometimes courts find fault with USDA-approved GM fields) slipped into the Senate Continuing Resolution spending bill HR 933 blind-sided an angry populace last week, giving little time to voice complaint before it was to go through the Senate.

On Wednesday morning, HR 933 passed with the new rider dubbed by activists as the Monsanto Protection Act therein. The rider has nothing to do with proposed government spending to keep it running for the next six months. Continue reading

So You Don’t Believe in Chemtrails?

That’s fine. Neither do most people….who don’t have to live under them. But chemtrails are not just something you believe in, like some believe that there will be 75 nubile virgins waiting for them in Heaven if they just kill a few infidels. There’s no documentary evidence for that. But there is documentary evidence for the existence of chemtrails which is overwhelming and inescapably conclusive, and so here’s just a taster for some of it. Continue reading

Grape Seed Extract Outperforms Chemo in Killing Advanced Cancer Cells

Patients with colorectal cancer may benefit from the cancer-growth-inhibiting power of grape seed extract.

Researchers from the University of Colorado Cancer Center report that the more aggressive the cancer cells are, the more effective the grape extract works at targeting and stopping the growth. Continue reading

Hugo Chavez, World Leaders and Cancer Deaths—Indications that the Cure Exists (For a Chosen Few)

Source: Activist Post
By: Janet Phelan

The death this past week of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez raises some disturbing questions. It was reported that the iconoclastic and controversial leader succumbed to a two-year-long battle with cancer. In so doing, he may have been the first world leader to lose his life to cancer since 1980, when the Shah of Iran succumbed to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma while in exile.

With cancer deaths figuring at 23% of the mortality rate in the United States (cancer is the leading cause of death in developed countries and the second leading cause of death in developing countries), one might think that the Big C might be striking down leaders of countries with the same regularity as it afflicts everyone else. The rather unusual and nearly universal tendency for the power elite to sidestep cancer death has raised questions as to whether or not the powers-that-be might be bogarting the cure.

Airtran Spraying Chemtrails to Boost Profits?

Source: The Intel Hub

AirTran Airways is wholly-owned subsidiary of Southwest Airlines (NYSE: LUV), has been ranked the number one low cost carrier in the Airline Quality Rating study for the past three years.

AirTran Airways offers coast-to-coast service on North America’s newest all-Boeing fleet.

Shame on Southwest Airlines for allowing subsidiary, Airtran Airwways, to enter into a secret contract to spray pollution into our skies.

On Oct 18, I recorded and tracked the progress of Airtran Flt TRS9100 as it sprayed aerosols on a heading of 180 deg (south) before making a U-turn over Gainesville to head north to Atlanta.

It was an easy task to identify Airtran TRS9100 since it was the only aircraft on FlightAware radar that matched the unusual flight path.

 

 

On the distance line (above) notice JAX to ATL is 280 SM (statute miles). The flight plan was filed for a route that covered 326 SM. While airborne the flight plan was changed to deviate south to spray aerosols for a total distance of 631 SM from JAX to ATL. Who paid the expenses and how?

Considering the extra fuel, engine time, crew and other expenses – how much is Airtran paid – and by whom –  in a secret contract to spray chemical aerosols over North Florida?

Are there any IRS consequences if the income is not reported?


Realtive Humidity at Flight Level (37,000 ft/11,200 meters) less than 20% at 3 reporting stations. This measured data is hard evidence that formation of persistent contrails of water vapor – as defined by NASA  – was not possible.

We can therefore conclude that the persistent jet trails are chemical aerosols of undetermined toxicity, sprayed over populations of citizens, wildlife, crops and  water sheds without due process and without knowledge or consent.
