And both the Democrat and Republican parties need to be dismantled and abolished completely, root and branch. Perhaps we can use the “RICO” statute on them?
I have said here before that both parties are the one Government Party, the party of the regime, the party of the State, the party of war, the party of Prohibition, the party of theft and plunder.
One further reason why they are a criminal racket is that they have both imposed restrictions on the right of the people and candidates to get their names on ballots for elections, imposing petition signature requirements and other rules and restrictions, to make it difficult or impossible for third-party and independent candidates to get their names on ballots. This is clearly a violation of the people’s First Amendment rights.
In my view, if you want to run for a public office, then just tell the local election office and voila, there it is. (Or “viola” as some people tend to write.)
The only restriction should be that the town clerk or the town’s registrar of voters office must verify that the name to be on the ballot is a legitimate name of an actual living person.
“But if we do that, then election ballots will be absolutely cluttered with names, including those crazy people who shouldn’t have their names on a ballot!” critics whine.
You mean, like Crazy Kathy Hokum, the unelected governor of New York who compared herself to Jesus? Or Sen. Lindsey Graham, who never met a war he didn’t like? Or the madman Gov. Gavin Gruesome? Apparently, people vote for the crazies.
Or, people complain that “too many candidates on the ballot might confuse the voters, etc., etc., etc.”
Well, that’s too bad, quite frankly. It’s the voters’ responsibility to study the candidates on a ballot in an election and select the one they think is best for the job.
In 2003 California had a recall election, the first question was “Shall Gray Davis be recalled (removed) from the office of Governor?” and the second question was, “If Davis is recalled, who should replace him as governor?”
David was recalled, and there were 135 candidates on the ballot to replace Davis. Were the people of California confused? Were there a lot of crazy people on the ballot? Of course. But that didn’t stop Arnold Schwarzenegger from winning that election.
Now, how ironic that the most anti-democracy people are “Democrats” these days. In New York, Libertarian Party candidate for governor Larry Sharpe, who automatically qualified for ballot access in 2022 because he received enough votes in his prior campaign for governor in 2018, has had his ballot access removed now because then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a “Democrat,” signed a bill into law to further restrict third parties and independents.
Prior to Cuomo’s rule change, Larry Sharpe had garnered enough votes in the 2018 election to qualify for automatic ballot access in 2022. This was rescinded after Cuomo raised the requirement from 50,000 votes to approximately 130,000 votes. Additionally, he tripled the petitioning requirement from 15,000 valid signatures to 45,000 valid signatures to get on the ballot without having automatic access. As a result, no independent governor candidate qualified to be on the ballot. Lee Zeldin petitioned for the Independence line, but was disqualified after over 13,000 signatures were disqualified after the New York Board of Elections determined that they were photocopies. Multiple election experts went so far as to suggest that Zeldin and his team committed fraud in order to capture another line on the ballot. As a result, the only candidates on the ballot will be Kathy Hochul and Lee Zeldin.
…The only objection to the Libertarian Party’s petitions came from John P. O’Connor of the Conservative Party, led by Chairman Gerard “Gerry” Kassar. Under Kassar’s direction, members of the Conservative Party acted as a proxy for the Republican Party in a battle to remove the Libertarian line from the ballot. According to Sharpe, in blocking third party candidates from appearing on the ballot, Gerry Kassar and Lee Zeldin have shown that they do not believe in democracy, free speech, or the US Constitution.
Candidates should not have to get people to sign petitions to get the candidates’ names on ballots. Get your name on the ballot, and if the people don’t want you for office they won’t vote for you.
But this pre-ballot access signature requirement just doesn’t make sense in a country that believes in the First Amendment and the right of the people to vote for whomever they want to vote for, not just people who are already well known, who are already popular, who are already established, who already have high name recognition, who can afford to pay petition signature gatherers, etc.
Sharpe had his appeals hearing with the NY Supreme Court on Friday, and we will see what their decision will be.
So, in their imposing restrictions to prevent “outsiders” from taking part in the government that rules over the people, as though it’s a private club, the Democrat and Republican parties really are a criminal racket.
Now this current post is to do with the effects of Covid protocols, lockdowns etc. on kids (and adults), and the harmfulness of the masks.
The first fact to cite is that Covid-19 was never a threat to any healthy child who didn’t already have a serious health condition. Any “public health” officials who have over the past two years stated otherwise has been LYING to you.
And we know that asymptomatic “carriers” of The Virus had never posed any threat to others. If you have The Virus but have no symptoms then that’s because you do not have enough of a viral load to have symptoms and if you have no symptoms then you do not have enough of a viral load to be contagious.
That means that school teachers have nothing to fear from children who may have The Virus, and they should stop being hysterical and irrational. (Notwithstanding that government schools need to be abolished. But that’s for a different discussion.)
If a child has cold-like or flu-like symptoms, whether the child has Covid-19 or not, then that child with symptoms should stay home and not go in to school. That should have been the official policy throughout the scamdemic, but fascists had other ideas in mind, didn’t they?
Here is some more information on how children have been the least harmed by Covid-19:
According to an early study in June 2020 published in the Lancet, as described by ABC, “children, including infants, generally have mild symptoms of COVID-19, and even those who develop the disease severely enough to warrant intensive care unit admission are unlikely to die…The study found that the majority of patients under 18 years old experienced a mild disease…The authors suggest that their study likely paints a more dramatic picture than you would see on average because it pulled data from hospitals, where patients are more likely to be severely sick. Many children who get COVID-19 are likely to be asymptomatic, meaning they don’t need medical care…”
Another study from England in July 2021 showed that “99·995% of CYP (children and young people) with a positive SARS-CoV-2 test survived (Covid). The 25 CYP who died of SARS-CoV-2 equates to a mortality rate of 2/million for the 12,023,568 CYP living in England.”
The study also noted that “CYP >10 years, of Asian and Black ethnic backgrounds, and with comorbidities were over-represented compared to other children.” So, because of the over-representation of children with comorbidities and given that people with comorbidities had a much greater chance of dying with Covid-19, then that fact brings the fatality rate even lower!
An August of 2020 British study examining 69,516 Covid patients concluded, according to the Spectator, that “… No children without a serious comorbidity of an additional illness died, and neither did any child between the ages of 28 days and 15 years.”
But the kids and their immune systems have been harmed a great deal by lockdowns, social isolation, and by the masks! The stay-in orders by fascist governors and mayors, causing children to not get enough exposure to germs and viruses that they would get when going outdoors and mingling with others, actually deprived children of this natural immunity process. And this makes children more vulnerable to serious illness when exposed later to germs and viruses!
And regarding the social isolation aspect of stay-in orders, according to Medical News Today,
(The researchers) write: “Of note, high levels of inflammation are a driver for [cardiovascular disease]. Social isolation was linked to downregulation of type I and II interferons and an impaired response to infection by simian immunodeficiency virus.”
They note that in the wake of social isolation, it is the emotional rather than the physical separation that is the triggering factor in the body’s reduced ability to respond to adversity.
And Mercola points out that lockdowns may have contributed to increased mortality rates from non-Covid causes.
Many children have tested positive for The Virus (even though they probably falsely tested positive because of high cycle thresholds, and if they actually were sick with symptoms they probably just had a bad cold or flu). But in some cases they were really suffering from bacterial pneumonia caused by the MASKS! The masks have been found to accumulate bacterial contamination.
A group of parents in Gainesville, FL, concerned about potential harms from masks, submitted six face masks to a lab for analysis. The resulting report found that five masks were contaminated with bacteria, parasites, and fungi, including three with dangerous pathogenic and pneumonia-causing bacteria. No viruses were detected on the masks, although the test is capable of detecting viruses.
The analysis detected the following 11 alarmingly dangerous pathogens on the masks:
• Streptococcus pneumoniae (pneumonia)
• Mycobacterium tuberculosis (tuberculosis)
• Neisseria meningitidis (meningitis, sepsis)
• Acanthamoeba polyphaga (keratitis and granulomatous amebic encephalitis)
Half of the masks were contaminated with one or more strains of pneumonia-causing bacteria. One-third were contaminated with one or more strains of meningitis-causing bacteria. One-third were contaminated with dangerous, antibiotic-resistant bacterial pathogens. In addition, less dangerous pathogens were identified, including pathogens that can cause fever, ulcers, acne, yeast infections, strep throat, periodontal disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, and more.
The face masks studied were new or freshly-laundered before wearing and had been worn for 5 to 8 hours, most during in-person schooling by children aged 6 through 11. One was worn by an adult. A t-shirt worn by one of the children at school and unworn masks were tested as controls. No pathogens were found on the controls. Proteins found on the t-shirt, for example, are not pathogenic to humans and are commonly found in hair, skin, and soil.
Jeffrey Tucker cites several studies, one paper stating that “both medical and non-medical facemasks are ineffective to block human-to-human transmission of viral and infectious disease…Wearing facemasks has been demonstrated to have substantial adverse physiological and psychological effects. These include hypoxia, hypercapnia, shortness of breath, increased acidity and toxicity, activation of fear and stress response, rise in stress hormones, immunosuppression, fatigue, headaches, decline in cognitive performance, predisposition for viral and infectious illnesses, chronic stress, anxiety and depression. Long-term consequences of wearing facemasks can cause health deterioration, developing and progression of chronic diseases and premature death.”
According to Stanford University: “N95 masks are estimated to reduce oxygen intake by anywhere from 5 percent to 20 percent. That’s significant, even for a healthy person. It can cause dizziness and lightheadedness. For healthy people, these side effects are temporary and usually not an issue. But if you are severely ill and are continuously wearing an N95 mask for several hours at a time, it can damage the lungs. For a patient in respiratory distress, it can even be life threatening.”
Many face masks are unsafe and unhealthy, as Jon Rappoport notes, because they are reprocessed and “decontaminated” using ethylene oxide, which “increases the risk of lymphoid cancer and, for females, breast cancer,” and “CDC warns that ethylene oxide is carcinogenic and teratogenic, and that ‘inhalation of ethylene oxide has been linked to neurologic dysfunction…'” and, “Prolonged exposure to ethylene oxide can hurt eyes and LUNGS, harm the brain and nervous system, and potentially cause lymphomas, leukemia…”
And regarding whether anyone including children should wear those masks, early on “Doctor” Fauci said that “people should not be walking around with masks…there’s no reason to be walking around with a mask…When you’re in the middle of an outbreak, wearing a mask might make people feel a little bit better…And often there are unintended consequences, people keep fiddling with the mask, and they keep touching their face…”
Watch Fauci flip-flop on masks. (A disclaimer: this video on the “Trump Fan Network” was the only video of this kind I could find right now. I want to make it clear that I am not a Trump fan.)
It is so sad to walk along somewhere outside and see some little kid with a mask on his face, covering his mouth and nose and thus his ability to breathe as well as having to conceal his identity, OUTSIDE even, because his parents are ignorant morons who listen to evil, psychopath government liars who do NOT have the best of intentions, to put it mildly, regarding people’s health. I just want to say to the parent, “You’re a child abuser!” (for making the child wear the harmful mask for no good reason). But I don’t say that, of course, even though it is true.
And here is Peggy Hall on the mask psy-op, in which the media are trying to brainwash the people to make masks acceptable, and even cool. “They’re trying to normalize these SKAMS, these identity stealing, identity concealing self-suffocation devices.”
Sunday is the 21st year of 9/11, and we’re having the usual memorials now. Many people now weren’t even born at that time. I’m sure the young people have been getting the usual government propaganda in the schools on 9/11, but not the truth. Just like the older people have been getting from TV/media/government/Hollywood, etc.
I posted an overview of the whole 9/11 thing in 2019, and reposted that in 2020 and 2021, so now I will repost it again for those who are craving for the truth and maybe have a feeling that the official government/media/academia/Hollywood narrative of 9/11 may not be totally truthful, especially after 5 years of Russia-collusion lies and 2+ years of Covid lies, hypocrisies and counterproductive and harmful mandates imposed by fascists.
Today is the 18th anniversary of the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks on the New York World Trade Center, the Pentacon, and in Pennsylvania. Where was I on that day? Well, I was here in this same apartment sitting at my table doing some writing and my father (now deceased) called at around 10 am saying that their trip that they were going to go on that day was canceled and he told me why. Hmm.
The government’s propaganda began immediately on that day and after. 99% of the news media were the White House press spokesmen. There was no discussion of the attackers stated motives, or the history of U.S. government and military’s invasions, bombings and occupations of the Middle East in the 10 years prior to that time. Anyone who did mention those things was labeled “Anti-America,” or “blaming America” for the attacks. Sean Hannity has been especially bad in that regard ever since that time. He is the worst of the worst as far as apparatchiks for the national security state are concerned. I just thought I’d mention that.
However, given that Hannity and all the other radio ditto-heads are accepting of the idea that actual U.S. government FBI, CIA etc. abused their powers including FISA spying in the Russiagate fiasco, maybe now some of these obedient worshipers of the national security state can at least consider the possibility that the official 9/11 narrative isn’t what the government has been telling us for 18 years. (But, I am not holding my breath.)
So, I’m sure that a lot of people reading this post will just skim it and not really take it seriously or click on any of the links for further information. This is because they are satisfied with what the government and its spokespeople of the mainstream media have been telling us since September 11, 2001. All these things they haven’t heard about must be merely whack-job “conspiracy theory” and all that. But there are still some people who are open to the truth.
In the years prior to the attacks, Congressman Ron Paul had several times warned that the U.S. government’s interventionist policies and war that it started against Iraq and elsewhere and Iraqi sanctions would cause blowback and retaliation within our shores. (And the response? Crickets.)
It’s amazing just how brainwashed so many people can be by daily propaganda, watching the TV news, listening to chickenhawk warmonger conservative talk radio, and so forth. “Al Qaeda.” “Osama bin Laden,” and “Islamic” were words that people heard over and over and over, but they rarely heard about Saudi Arabia and blowback.
I don’t know what else to write so I will post links to some new and old articles on the subject, and maybe some videos.
Over the years I have reported the findings of scientists, engineers, and architects that indicate that the official story is false.I had an open mind for two reasons.One is that having been an engineering student, I could tell the difference from a building falling down from asymmetrical structural damage and a building blowing up.The other is that having been involved in policy issues in Washington for a quarter century I knew that such a humiliating defeat suffered by the world’s only superpower at the hands of a few Muslim terrorists would have brought instant demands from the White House, Congress, and media for investigation into how every aspect of the American national security state failed simultaneously on one morning.Instead the White House resisted the 9/11 families demands for an investigation for one year and never delivered a forensic investigation.Instead, the country was given a 9/11 Commission Report that was merely the government’s official story of what happened.No heads rolled.No one was fired or even reprimanded.To hold no one accountable for such a massive failure and humiliating defeat is not a believable response if the official 9/11 story is true.
Here is an interview in which Lindauer tells about her experiences:
James Corbett with an hour-long discussion on who was really behind the 9/11 attacks:
And here is a video documentary from Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth explaining the evidence that explosions brought down the World Trade Center, and not the fire caused by planes crashing into the buildings:
I admit it. I’m a “truther.” That’s because the truth is important. And as the late Justin Raimondo wrote, the opposite of a “truther” is a “liar.”
Queen Elizabeth II died at the age of 96. She carried herself with dignity and class. But really I have never really been a fan of the British royal family. Now, Queen will be replaced by Prince Charles, who will now be referred to as “King Charles III.”
I think I will refer to Charles as “King Tampon,” given his disgraceful embarrassment during the time in the early 1990s that he told Camilla that he wanted to be her tampon or some such thing. Another disgrace was Charles’s openly cheating on Diana during those years. It is possible that the royal family were behind Diana’s “accident” and death and for ritualistic wacko reasons.
Another reason to dismiss Charles as an unworthy is his climate change kookery. He’s a climate kook and a depopulation wacko. Charles is totally unworthy of being “King” and really ought to step aside and let Prince William be the next King.
In the meantime, regarding Queen Elizabeth, I think that Carol Burnett’s parody of the Queen was spot on, on The Carol Burnett Show during the 1970s. Carol had the Queen’s voice and gestures to a T. She was hysterical. I found several of those skits on YouTube, here and here.
Mikhail Gorbachev was the last General Secretary of the Soviet Communist Party and Premier (or actually “President”) of the Soviet Union before it collapsed and crashed. He died at the age of 91.
Someone who has written quite a bit about Gorbachev is Yuri Maltsev, an economics professor closely associated with the Mises Institute and previously an economist with the Gorbachev Soviet regime. Maltsev defected to the U.S. as the Soviet Union was collapsing and crashing.
Gorbachev is being praised as having been a “reformer,” even by some libertarians, but Maltsev has told us a more realistic story. I have linked to this before, this article by Maltsev on the real Gorbachev. It is actually the introduction to the book, Requiem for Marx, edited by Maltsev.
Gorbachev too tried to save communism through other means. That was the original point behind glasnost and perestroika (and probably why these petty measures were so heralded in the West). Even the KGB understood the need for reform. As the chief ideologue of the KGB, Philip Bobkov, has said, “The KGB understood very well, back in 1985, that the USSR would not be able to make further progress without perestroika.”
By the people in the Soviet Union Gorbachev was rightly considered to be just another Communist Party hack. His “reforms” were never fundamental, but only expedient measures to preserve the centrality of the Soviet Communist Party and to salvage what was left of the socialist system. Gorbachev was only willing to “reform” when the world was falling apart around him.
He was in a good position to know better. He was from a peasant family in South Russia, where he witnessed first hand the malnutrition, hunger, and even starvation that socialism caused. His grandfather was killed in Stalin’s purges, so he knew the brutality of Communist politics. Yet he chose to make politics his life’s work. For Gorbachev, the exercise of power has always been more important than good sense or morality.
It was a Western fantasy that the man named to be general secretary of the Communist Party would not be a devoted Communist. As in joining a street gang, you must demonstrate that you are absolutely loyal to the club (and all its associated crimes) and that your conscience can be overridden. During Gorbachev’s long political climb, he passed more than one hundred such political and security clearances.
The main difference between Gorbachev and his predecessors was that he was smarter and smoother. He was also the first one with a university education: a masters in law and a masters in agriculture. Given Soviet education, that is probably why the first thing he did was ruin the agricultural distribution system.
While he was in agricultural school in Stavropol, Russia, he was chief of the local Communist Party. His colleagues report that he ordered his professors to come from the university to Gorbachev’s office to tutor and test him.
Gorbachev became secretary of agriculture under the Yuri Andropov regime, and endeared himself to the Party Secretary by promoting a cult of Andropov. He promoted films about him and mandated that streets be named after him. Andropov returned the favor by promoting Gorbachev in the Party bureaucracy. Of course, Andropov is one of the most hardened of all Soviet leaders. As ambassador to Hungary, he ordered the invasion of that great country in 1956, and while head of the KGB in 1968, he persecuted dissidents by the tens of thousands (including Solzhenitsyn), presiding over the darkest period in KGB history.
Later, Gorbachev became secretary of ideology during the Chernenko regime, and as early as 1984, he was making overtures to Margaret Thatcher. What Thatcher did not know, or refused to believe, was that Gorbachev’s goal was to save Soviet communism (meaning the power of the Party) and given the dire circumstances he faced, that meant “reform.” Yet a reformist communist is only marginally better than an orthodox one. His goals and methods should have been condemned, just as one would condemn a successor to Hitler who claimed to be a “reformist Nazi.”
Gorbachev never learned economics in school. In all my dealings with him, I never saw even a slight flash of economic insight, or even any desire to learn more about economics. He preferred to think like a communist: everything can be done by issuing orders, no matter how perverse, contrary to human nature, and brutal they may be.
Beginning with the day he assumed power, he positioned himself as an opponent of freedom and the market. He singlehandedly destroyed what little market activity existed in the Soviet Union, wrecked the already-miserable lives of the public, presided over appalling violence against innocent people in the Baltic states, and openly supported old-guard communists. Yet the Western media decided not to be skeptical about his aims.
Then Gorbachev began a campaign against “dishonest income.” Like Stalin and Khrushchev before him, he declared all sources of income other than official salary to be an evil to be stamped out. For example, if a person rented a room out in his house, he received “dishonest income” and all parties would be severely punished. The problem was not a single person in the Soviet Union was untainted by unofficial economic activity. The official economy did not produce enough of anything desirable, so if a person was untainted, he was probably already dead.
Party bureaucrats bulldozed thousands of gardens in the backyards of peasant’s homes, often filled with fresh fruits and vegetables. “Illicit” farmers’ markets were closed. The bureaucrats cracked down on such activity as currency exchanges and unofficial transportation. Chaos reigned in the housing market, where the penalty for renting out an apartment for profit would be to have your whole home confiscated.*
[*Wait a minute. How is this different from America’s various “blue” states and local communities in USSA right now?]
For a study on the right way to de-socialize or decentralize a “union” of states that shouldn’t exist in the first place, read Murray Rothbard on that.
Last night apparently was Joe Biden’s speech on how bad “MAGA Republicans” are, that they are opposed to democracy and are a threat to democracy and to the country and how the MAGAs are promoting violence.
Hmm. So everything Biden is accusing republicans of is what he and his fellow democrats are guilty of. In 2020 there was riot after riot by BLM and Antifa, billions in property damage, dozens of people murdered and hundreds of people injured including cops, businesses burned to the ground (businesses which employed black people and other minorities — so much for “black lives matter”!). Public office holders and pols especially democrats promoted and approved of the riots, looting, arson, etc. Kommiela Harris said the rioting, looting and arson “will not stop” and “should not stop.”
And regarding January 6th, like the Michigan governor kidnapping plot that was concocted and advanced by the FBI in an attempt to entrap hapless right-wingers, there is plenty of evidence to show that January 6th was an entrapment scheme instigated by the FBI with the help of Antifa. We know the timeline shows that Trump was still speaking at his rally when the rioting had already begun at the Capitol, and when actual attendees to Trump’s rally made their way to the Capitol they were let in voluntarily by police.
Meanwhile, Biden’s fed goons have been holding many January 6th prisoners in indefinite detention, in some cases solitary confinement, people who merely “wandered around the Capitol in a daze” and committed no violence. Biden’s FBI and DOJ goes after Peter Navarro and Roger Stone (not two of my favorites, that’s for sure), for “process crimes” but the gubmint goons dare not touch Ray Epps and other FBI instigators, or the 2020 violent rioters, arsonists, looters, and murderers.
Now, Biden has also called Trump supporters “semi-fascists,” i.e. fascists because “semi” means nothing here. Meanwhile, Biden imposes executive orders on this, that and the other thing, totally unconstitutional (but then, so did Trump!).
Many democrat (and some republican) governors and mayors imposed Covid-related orders on businesses to close down, with no due process whatsoever. There was no scientific evidence at that time to support lockdowns. And already by March 2020 officials knew that “The Virus” had a very low infection fatality rate like seasonal flu, and that many people with “The Virus” had NO SYMPTOMS! Businesses were ordered shut down with no evidence that their being open was any threat to the public or the “public health”! Governors and mayors ordering businesses shut down with no due process was outright FASCISM in no uncertain terms! Biden himself called for shutdowns, mandatory mask and vaccine orders. Total fascist!
However, Biden is sort of right about the republicans, conservatives or Trump supporters being fascists, because some of the policies many of them support are fascist policies.
For instance, many of those people support the war on drugs, and the vicious police state that goes with it. Laws prohibiting the people from ingesting, possessing, buying or selling a drug are fascist laws. The government presumes to own your body when it says you may or may not ingest a particular substance. In contrast, if the individual owned one’s own body, it is the individual’s right to decide what substances that individual will or will not ingest.
And the government has no moral or constitutional authority to forbid people from owning or possessing something, or from buying or selling something from willing and consensual buyers or sellers, whether that be drugs or guns, or booze or chickens. Prohibitions of these kinds are fascist prohibitions. As Leonard E. Read would say, “anything that’s peaceful.” As long as you are peaceful and don’t violate the persons or property of others, don’t steal or commit acts of aggression against others, the government must leave people alone. (Unless, of course, the people want a fascist government to tell them what to do or what not to do. Only idiots want that, in my view.)
And the republicans and conservatives are also fascists in their supporting the current system of immigration controls. When a business is privately owned, the businessperson decides whom to hire or not to hire, including immigrants. Who owns the business? The owner. Ownership is control. Under fascism, the government has the ultimate control and is the ultimate decider of who may or may not get to work at whatever particular business. When a business owner has to get permission from a bureaucrat to hire someone, or to do anything really, that’s a fascist kind of relationship. (Actually, that’s socialism, when a business owner has to get the government’s permission to do something or hire someone, but fascism is actually a form of socialism, ultimately.)
If conservatives, “MAGA” people and republicans want to end the immigration crisis, rather than support fascism and a police state on the border, they can try ending support for the war on drugs, which is a major cause of the immigration problem. And end support of U.S. government’s foreign aid to corrupt governments, like those in Central America, whose corrupt governments are fused with the drug cartels which wouldn’t exist were it not for U.S. government’s prohibition and the dreaded “War on Drugs.”
