The Israel Deception

Is the return of Israel in the 20th century truly a work of God, or is it a result of a cosmic chess move to deceive the elect by the adversary?

Congress submits bill making it illegal to hold cash, Bitcoin, or other assets outside of a bank without informing them in writing

Just as the War on Drugs was never actually about slowing down or stopping the import and use of illegal narcotics, so too was the spurious War on Terror not about stopping individuals or groups from inciting violence for political means.  In fact, we already know that U.S. agencies have funded, trained, and armed the very terror groups that are supposedly on the FBI's Terror Watch List when they supported them in the taking over of Libya, and in the attemp to take over Syria.

So the question then has to be asked... what are the purposes behind the ideological wars against drugs and terror really all about?  Well, since the real victims going back to the 1970's when the War on Drugs was instituted by President Richard Nixon have been the millions of Americans incarcerated for victimless crimes, and the billions of dollars seized without a trial in what is known as Civil Forfeiture, then it is fairly obvious who these wars were really focused against.

And since the advent of the Patriot Act, which hasn't stopped a single terrorist or terror event following the terror attacks on 9/11, the ability of Americans to do as they please with their own money has been stymied in the government's attempt to monitor and regulate every single transaction individuals choose to conduct.

However, with the rise of cryptocurrencies, and the new fears coming out that decentralized virtual money could actually start or magnify a financial crisis, Congress on May 25 has submitted a bill making it illegal, and placing individuals subject to asset confiscation and imprisonment, for anyone to have a medium size amount of cash, Bitcoin, etc... outside of a bank without telling the government how much you have, where you have it, and why you have it through the filling out of new Federal forms.

Recently a new bill was introduced on the floor of the US Senate entitled, pleasantly,
“Combating Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing, and Counterfeiting Act of 2017.” 
You can probably already guess its contents. 
Cash is evil. 
Bitcoin is evil. 
Now they’ve gone so far to include prepaid mobile phones, retail gift vouchers, or even electronic coupons. Evil, evil, and evil. 
Among the bill’s sweeping provisions, the government aims to greatly extend its authority to seize your assets through “Civil Asset Forfeiture”. 
Civil Asset Forfeiture rules allow the government to take whatever they want from you, without a trial or any due process. 
This new bill adds a laundry list of offenses for which they can legally seize your assets… all of which pertain to money laundering and other financial crimes.
Here’s the thing, though: they’ve also vastly expanded on the definition of such ‘financial crimes’, including failure to fill out a form if you happen to be transporting more than $10,000 worth of ‘monetary instruments’. 
Have too much cash? You’d better tell the government. 
If not, they’re authorizing themselves in this bill to seize not just the money you didn’t report, but ALL of your assets and bank accounts. 
They even go so far as to specifically name “safety deposit boxes” among the various assets that they can seize if you don’t fill out the form. - Sovereign Man

Big Pharma is the enemy behind the real war on drugs

When marijuana was outlawed and eventually placed as a Schedule 1 drug in the 20th century, the primary propaganda used to help ban the weed was a combination of racism, fearmongering by certain members of the government, and of course, corporate America.

The main villain who would become the father of the eventual 'war on drugs' was Harry Anslinger, an assistant Prohibition commissioner and then commissioner of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics from 1930 to 1962.  Anslinger would use all means of vilification to both deter use, and eventually become successful in banning pot by portraying minorities as the only ones using the drug. And of course as a bonus, this fit in perfectly with agendas of corporations who wanted pot and its brother hemp eliminated from society.

"There are 100,000 total marijuana smokers in the U.S.," Anslinger might say, "and most are Negroes, Hispanics, Filipinos and entertainers.  Their Satanic music, jazz and swing, result from marijuana use.  This marijuana causes white women to seek sexual relations with Negroes, entertainers and any others." 
Actually, Anslinger did say that, and much more.  With the help of the federal government, the states, DuPont, pharmaceutical companies and the Hearst newspaper chain, Anslinger sought to keep the heartbeat of Puritanism alive.  He was the assistant Prohibition commissioner and then commissioner of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics from 1930 to 1962. - Mapinc
Fast forward 79 years later...

Medical studies have now overwhelmingly shown that the medicinal benefits of marijuana outweigh the side effects that using pot may incur, especially if distilled into forms other than as a joint to smoke.  And while it took nearly two decades to get this information out to where enough of the public was open to accepting and demanding its legalization, the war on this drug continues even today thanks to the one industry that is spending 100's of millions of dollars to keep it out of people's hands.

Big Pharma.

There’s a body of research showing that painkiller abuse and overdose are lower in states with medical marijuana laws. These studies have generally assumed that when medical marijuana is available, pain patients are increasingly choosing pot over powerful and deadly prescription narcotics. But that’s always been just an assumption.

Now a new study, released in the journal Health Affairs, validates these findings by providing clear evidence of a missing link in the causal chain running from medical marijuana to falling overdoses. Ashley and W. David Bradford, a daughter-father pair of researchers at the University of Georgia, scoured the database of all prescription drugs paid for under Medicare Part D from 2010 to 2013.

They found that, in the 17 states with a medical-marijuana law in place by 2013, prescriptions for painkillers and other classes of drugs fell sharply compared with states that did not have a medical-marijuana law. The drops were quite significant: In medical-marijuana states, the average doctor prescribed 265 fewer doses of antidepressants each year, 486 fewer doses of seizure medication, 541 fewer anti-nausea doses and 562 fewer doses of anti-anxiety medication.
But most strikingly, the typical physician in a medical-marijuana state prescribed 1,826 fewer doses of painkillers in a given year.

The tanking numbers for painkiller prescriptions in medical marijuana states are likely to cause some concern among pharmaceutical companies. These companies have long been at the forefront of opposition to marijuana reform, funding research by anti-pot academics and funneling dollars to groups, such as the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America, that oppose marijuana legalization.

Pharmaceutical companies have also lobbied federal agencies directly to prevent the liberalization of marijuana laws. In one case, recently uncovered by the office of Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), the Department of Health and Human Services recommended that naturally derived THC, the main psychoactive component of marijuana, be moved from Schedule 1 to Schedule 3 of the Controlled Substances Act — a less restrictive category that would acknowledge the drug’s medical use and make it easier to research and prescribe. Several months after HHS submitted its recommendation, at least one drug company that manufactures a synthetic version of THC — which would presumably have to compete with any natural derivatives — wrote to the Drug Enforcement Administration to express opposition to rescheduling natural THC, citing “the abuse potential in terms of the need to grow and cultivate substantial crops of marijuana in the United States.”


The DEA ultimately rejected the HHS recommendation without explanation.

The Pharmaceutical industry is one, if not the largest combined corporate segment in America today, and has revenues reaching hundreds of billions of dollar per year.  And as you can see in the above chart of how marijuana use in states that have legalized it in some fashion have both aided people in numerous ways, and taken profits away from corporations reliant upon synthetic opioids, this war will not end quietly, as we all know that the love of money is the root of many evils.

No matter the cost to your well being.

Complete pot legalization may be here in America as early as Aug. 1

Although most generations living today have little or no idea behind the real reasons and purposes for the ‘war on drugs’, the fact of the matter is that is has and always will be about money, and those who control it.
Cannabis or pot is a drug that has a long history in the United States, and was even used as a relaxant by our Founding Fathers as written in several annals from that time period.  And like the way Great Britain forced opium on the Chinese back in the 19th century to help fund their vast global empire, the American government did virtually the opposite and banned such natural narcotics as a way to enrich pharmaceutical companies through medicinal monopolies, and to enlarge law enforcement agencies through the incarceration of users.
But this may all be changing as on Aug. 1, the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) will be reviewing narcotics currently on Federal registries known as ‘schedules’, and there is a very good probability that Cannabis will be removed as a schedule 1 drug and placed on a different list that contains current legal substances like alcohol, caffeine, and nicotine.

Evidence is mounting that legalization is way to win the war on drugs

Ever since President Richard Nixon initiated schedules to designate most recreational drugs as illegal, America began a War on Drugs that has now stretched over four decades and several trillions of dollars.  The results however have been catastrophic as not only has drug use increased over that time, but prisons have swelled with individuals who were incarcerated for victimless crimes, and violent cartels now control not only drug traffic and distribution, but also elected officials and entire countries.
In 1996 California helped open a crack in the government’s absolute stranglehold in drug prohibition by voting in the first medical marijuana legislation.  And over the next 19 years, 23 states had passed laws allowing for the regulated medicinal use of the drug.  This first step was then followed by the full legalization of cannabis in both Colorado and Washington in 2013.
And now 3 years later, something very interesting is occurring which has mirrored the results of ending alcohol’s prohibition during the 1920’s.  Because once both drugs were removed from legal restrictions, most crimes tied to the illegal distribution of both alcohol and marijuana began to dry up.

After two years, IRS finally returns money taken from honest business owner

Fatca, Civil Forfeiture, and deposit restructuring are just some of the obscure and draconian laws and regulations that have come out of Washington since the ideological ‘war on terror’ was introduced a decade ago.  And despite the fact that the U.S. government has spent over one trillion dollars in collecting just $13.5 billion from foreign bank account holders, you would think that well paid bureaucrats would have a modicum of intelligence in determining the difference between a simple business owner, and a drug dealing cartel.
Apparently not.

Former Mexican President seeks legalizing drugs as an alternative to endless war

The war on drugs has ultimately been a failure for its original mission, but it has been a boon to the cartels, prison system, and law enforcement agencies who have all expanded since the United States began dedicating resources to it.  On both sides of the fence, the argument rages over the economic impact of drugs and drug use if it is ever legalized, and on April 16th, a major figure in the history of the war on drugs made his choice on which choice should be made.



President Vicente Fox is among a growing number of leaders in Latin America calling on the U.S. to legalize drugs to reduce violence and organized crime.
"Prohibitions don't work, and the last remaining frontier of prohibition is drug, and we should questions ourselves why drugs," Fox said.

It's the same question President Barack Obama will hear from some of the leaders gathered at the Summit of the Americas this weekend in Colombia during talks about drug policies in the region.

"This war on drugs is totally lost," said Fox, the former president, during an interview at his sprawling ranch, where he built the first presidential library in Mexico. - Kens5.com

History in the 20th and 21st century shows that hard core drug users will take the substances legal or not, and those that simply want a recreational fix will do so in a responsible manner.  Holland and other European countries that legalized drugs, continue to have drug abuse problems, but they spend their money primarily on rehibilitation over incarceration, and have less criminality than in nations that spend billions each year for an epidemic that is growing, not shrinking.
Legalizing drugs now has a big time backer, and when former Mexican President Vincente Fox believes that ending the war on drugs is the best way to dissolve the epidemic, then his opinion carries massive weight since he used to be on the front lines of the problem.
