America’s Heroin Epidemic

Opium-Afghanistan-chart– In 2001 a gram of heroin at North Hi cost $400. This morning a gram of heroin at North Hi.
cost $100 or $80 if a regular buyer.

– This graph is from the United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime(unodc.org).
As you can see, the single year the Taliban controlled the crop the planting was 8,000 hectares (1 ha = approx 3 ac). The record crop of 2014, 224,000 ha, has a value of approx. $60 billion. Iraq’s oil is worth approx. $100 billion @ $90 a barrel.

– America consumes 60% of the illegal drugs produced on the planet, but if you check the DEA’s website, right now, they will tell you only 4% of America’s heroin comes from “SW Asia”. Hardly credible considering our consumption and the fact that Afghanistan supplies 93% of the world’s supply of opium.

– The media tells us this epidemic is primarily caused by over prescribing opiate pain pills.
The unodc.org report comes out in early October. The 2015 report showed a 19% reduction in planting. Two weeks later our President announced a re-deployment of 5,000 troops back into Afghanistan and we know where those troops were deployed.

– How much of a stretch is it to connect the price of heroin at North Hi and the level of planting in Afghanistan? Is this connection obvious? Is the epidemic obvious? Why have we not heard of this connection from our MEDIA? Or a SINGLE MEMBER OF OUR CONGRESS? Or our DEA?

– I think the money is so great, the addiction to the money so profound, that our society, our leaders, our press, sacrifice our own children to feed this addiction. Much the same way an addicted mother will leave her child unattended to go out and get her drugs. Will she return when the child needs care or when she secures her drugs?

– This is a crisis and this epidemic of addictive disorder is destroying America.

Geo-engineering

Our Pentagon funds, talents, and resources must be re-directed toward the devastating consequences of 70 yrs. of military expansion and run-away corporate irresponsibility. We must do this immediately!

” The all out anthropogenic assault against planet Earth continues to decimate the entire web of life. From the ongoing climate engineering insanity to the completely out of control military “exercises” that are killing countless life forms in what is yet left of our once thriving oceans, collapse will come soon on the current course. Global temperatures are skyrocketing and shattering all former records. Deadly heat and record drought in India are wreaking havoc on the population and it is only April, the hottest months of the year are yet to come. Climate engineering is nothing less than weather warfare, and it is playing a massive part in the unfolding climate chaos (though there are countless other contributing anthropogenic factors). Why is such a large percentage of the population so willing to completely ignore the insanity? Because they are in one way or another invested in the very companies helping to create it. The latest installment of Global Alert News is at the link below.

True solace can only exist in facing reality head-on. It can only exist in fully embracing one’s responsibility to the whole, to our children, and to the greater good. We must all stand together and make our voices heard, we can yet alter the outcome of what is unfolding.” – Dane Wigington

Term Limits

– ISIS threat to America is a myth. A “strategy of tension” fostered by agency whose budgets depend on fear. We are the terrorists and are the only people on this planet who do not know it. 39,000 American bombs dropped on sovereign Islamic countries in 2015. Not one Congressperson will confront this ugly truth.

– WTC7 was a controlled demolition.

– Abolish Citizen United. Money has destroyed our process.

– Term limits. Washington, D.C. seems to be a solvent for moral courage. I think those people become addicts quickly: Addicted to Power and Money. Ab Lincoln said: “Most men can withstand considerable adversity in life, in fact, most men do withstand considerable adversity, if you want to test his character, give him Power.”
