--->Opinion: John Ross, Counterpunch: "In the mid-1980s, the Colombianos, weary of dodging the U.S. Navy in the Caribbean, moved the cocaine biz to Mexico and its porous, nearly 2000 mile border with the United States and contracted with the Sinaloa boys who owned the black tar and brown heroin smuggling routes into the U.S. southwest. Pretty quick, the Sinaloa boys were splitting profits with the Pablo Escobars and soon would take over the trade, contracting for coca production in the Andes and distributing the blow in El Norte, thus achieving true cartel status...Every U.S. president since Ronald Reagan has declared a war on drugs - I calculate that in the past 25 years, I have covered five distinct drug wars. Billions have been wantonly flushed down the drain since Reagan's declaration of war in 1982 and the W word has become a much bigger business. For the cartels, the "war" is a price support system that gooses up profits. For the drug warriors, the "war" is the goose that keeps laying the platinum egg and security budgets have ballooned.

--->UFO Psy-Ops lead to Chinese airport closing, yet ---again. Speaking of which, governments have been playing with these tricks for a loooong time. Back in a June webcast, Phillip and Paul Collins, authors of The Ascendancy of the Scientific Dictatorship, and I discussed the technocratic-occult obsession with Extraterrestrials in "science," "science fiction," and transhumanism ala imaginative, evolutionary interpretive models of the origins of the universe. We discuss all of this and how some of us, plausibly I believe, even think the "signs and lying wonders...and every sort of evil" characteristic of the coming of the eschatological Antichrist spoken of by St. Paul will involve these ET Psy-ops in order to bring about at once a global cry for "security" from "them"! Interesting times no? For more on all that Harlot cheap Tricks stuff, see the posts here
