Revolt of the Plebs
Aug 11, 2010
If you look beyond the barebacked illegal alien scaling a barbed wire fence, you’ll discover a trail of dead that leads all the way back to Mexico City. There you’ll find President Felipe Calderon—chillin’ like a villain—with a motley wrecking crew of CIA operatives, Latin American drug lords and an assortment of corporate henchmen from such infamous organizations as Halliburton, DynCorp and SYColeman. Look beyond them, and you’ll discover a trail of cash that leads all the way back to Wall Street and Washington D.C.
Mexico is going through some big changes, but not the kinds of changes contained in any of Calderon’s political speeches. The Mexican President is working off blueprints drafted by the Anglo-American establishment. By the time they’re through, you won’t recognize the place. It may not become a suitable place to live, but it will certainly be a plunder friendly environment for rich carpetbaggers (the people Obama likes to call “The Titan’s of Industry”) intent on exploiting all of Mexico’s vast natural resources. But—of course—you can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs, and that’s precisely what Calderon and his staff of short order cooks are frying up in Hell’s kitchen.
Since Calderon took office in 2006, almost 30,000 lives have been lost to a nonsensical military offensive against the minor players in Mexico’s drug trade. Funding for this colossal disaster was made possible through the Merida Initiative of 2008. This military aid package is a creature of the Bush administration, and was introduced as part of the Security and Prosperity Partnership’s (SPP) plan to merge the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) with a militarized tri-national Homeland Security force. Since it was signed into law, roughly 1.4 billon American tax dollars have been flushed down this money pit to create a boondoggle for U.S. defense contractors, IT companies and private mercenary firms. The recent upsurge in violence on both sides of the border, along with the unprecedented influx of illegal aliens into the United States, is a direct result of this unholy alliance.
Calderon himself is merely a puppet of the United States government. Throughout his entire term in office, the drug war has taken precedence over everything. As a party to the Merida Initiative— also known as “Plan Mexico,”—Calderon is obligated to put U.S. security objectives ahead of all domestic policies. Pursuant to the agreement, Mexico is required to adopt and maintain an aggressive counter-narcotic, counter-terrorism and border security strategy that adheres to a strict military model.
The objective is not to stop the free flow of narcotics across the border but rather to eliminate smaller drug gangs that compete with the larger cartels who launder their money through U.S. and British banks.
Meanwhile, at least 49% of the Mexican population continues to live below the poverty line on less than US$2 per day. Projects to improve infrastructure have fallen to the wayside. Public services are minimal to non-existant. Wages are low and the gap between the rich and the poor is larger than all but six other nations in the world. Despite being the 11th richest economy on the planet, only a privileged few reap the rewards of Mexico’s vast wealth of natural resources like oil, gas and minerals.
Mexico is the first of the three North America countries to fully embrace the SPP. It is no longer a sovereign nation. Ever since Calderon’s National Action Party (PAN) took control in the year 2000, U.S., British and Spanish companies have taken possession of almost every bank in Mexico. Citigroup—for instance—owns Banamex, the largest and most influential of Mexico’s financial institutions.
Both Felipe Calderon and his predecessor, Vicente Fox, are devout globalists. They are the anti-thesis of the previous nationalist government—the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI)—that ruled Mexico for over 70 years. Their strategy for dealing with the drug trade was far different than the current administration. During their reign of power, the PRI had an iron grip on Mexico and controlled everything from natural resources, the press and even the cartel’s themselves. Though narcotics trafficking flourished during the PRI years, the government was able to control the gangs under strict rules that forbid kidnapping, the killing of civilians and the encroachment upon another cartel’s turf. When the PRI lost the Presidency in the year 2000 to Vicente Fox and his National Action Party (PAN), all of those controls went with them.
Earlier this year, rumors began circulating that the Calderon government was in bed with Mexico’s largest drug cartel, the Sinaloa Federation, which controls more than 45% of the drug trade. In February, Al-Jazeera posted a video expose, which suggested that the Calderon government was favoring the Sinaloa Cartel. They interviewed a leading Mexican law professor—Edgardo Buscaglia—as well as a prominent Mexican journalist— Diego Enrique Osorno, both of whom determined, through research, that the federal government was targeting the weakest organized crime groups in Mexico and all but ignoring the main organized crime group, the Sinaloa Federation. An analysis of over 50,000 Mexican drug arrest documents dating back to 2003 showed that only a tiny fraction of those arrests were against Sinaloa cartel members, and none have been against cartel leaders.
This led many to surmise that the PAN was becoming just as corrupt as the PRI, and that the war on drugs was nothing more than an expensive bloodletting to purge the narcotics trade of low level upstarts. This has led to resurgence in popularity of the PRI, who has promised to get the cartels under control if elected in 2012. National Public Radio recently interviewed Denise Dresser, a political scientist in Mexico City, who stated, “It’s as if the Communist Party were resurgent in Russia. We’re witnessing, in many ways, the return of an authoritarian party that governed Mexico for 71 years.”
Now, just as Calderon’s popularity was beginning to wane, we learn thast Mexican troops have very conveniently found and killed one of the Sinaloa Cartel’s #3 man, Ignacio Coronel “Nacho” Villarreal. This gave Calderon a much needed boost, which he has now used to justify continuing on with the drug war on its present course. At first glance, this killing would appear to dismiss speculation of Calderon’s ties with the Sinaloa Federation. But does it really? Is it not realistic to assume that Nacho is merely a sacrificial lamb, or perhaps a rogue element within the cartel that needed to be eliminated? Notice that he was not taken alive. Surely his capture would have been an invaluable intelligence asset. Surely, Nacho took a lot of valuable information to his grave. It has recently been discovered that Villareal was implicated in CIA operations in Yucatan. According to an article by Mario Andrade, “Thanks to the arduous work of the Mexican newspaper Por Esto!, it was discovered that Nacho Coronel was literally running “El Chapo” Guzman’s cocaine operations in the Yucatan Peninsula since 2004, when evidently, he became the visible head of the Sinaloa Cartel which operated out of the cities of Merida, Cancun, and Cozumel. This was known as “the Yucatan Peninsula Route.”
“On September of 2007, there was a plane crash in Yucatan. When authorities arrived at the crash site, they discovered well over 3 tons of cocaine onboard the Gulfstream II aircraft. The narcotics reportedly belonged to the Sinaloa Drug Cartel, under the command of “El Chapo” Guzman and the local control of Nacho Coronel. However, after further investigations into the origins of the aircraft’s markings and registration number (N987SA), it was discovered that it was used for CIA rendition flights. Later that month, another drug bust took place involving a DC9 aircraft transporting cocaine, registered to an American business (although the American owner was never arrested, and the identity was not publicly revealed).”
Again I ask: Does Villarreal’s killing strike a significant blow to the Sinaloa Federation, or does his death serve the dual purpose of getting rid of a dangerous liability while also giving Calderon a much needed publicity boost?
You can expect to see more convenient killings as the system purges itself of rogue elements. The PAN will use these executions for propaganda purposes in an attempt to win back dissenters from the PRI and get public opinion back on their side. They’re also using Vicente Fox, who has now become a vocal supporter in favor of drug legalization. Are his declarations sincere, or is he simply putting out campaign rhetoric for the PAN? Don’t be surprised if Calderon himself comes out and promises to strongly consider the legalization of narcotics if the PAN is re elected in 2012. We’re all familiar with Obama’s promise to end the wars in the Middle East during his campaign, only to reverse his position the minute he took office. The same thing will happen here.
That’s not to say that it’s entirely unrealistic to imagine an open drug market in Mexico. Legalized drugs would allow Wall Street investors to reap huge profits by investing in U.S. drug companies trafficking in a legalized drug trade. Demand for drugs would soar in the U.S. as previously abstinent Americans took trips south of the border for a little recreational drug experimentation, only to return as hardcore addicts. Of course drugs would remain illegal in the states, and those returning across the border with souvenirs would make welcome additions to the penal system.
Whether Mexico will ever legalize drugs or continue on their present course is still a matter of speculation. But one thing is certain: nothing that any of these people decide to do will be done for the benefit of the people. The New World Order is weighing its options, and the eradication of narcotics is not part of their agenda. There are far too many profits to be made from drugs, whether they are illegal or not. Catherine Austin Fitts, a risk management professional, has stated that narcotics annually bring in an estimated $400 billion globally and about $150 billion plus in the United States. In part one her series, Narcodollars for Beginners, Fitts states that, “According to the Department of Justice, the US launders between $500 billion – $1 trillion annually. I have little idea what percentage of that is narco dollars, but it is probably safe to assume that at least $100-200 billion relates to US drug import-exports and retail trade.”
In her article, The Red Button Problem, Fitts states, “In the summer of 2000, I asked a group of 100 people at a conference of spiritually committed people who would push a red button if it would immediately stop all narcotics trafficking in their neighborhood, city, state and country. Out of 100 people, 99 said they would not push such red button. When surveyed, they said they did not want their mutual funds to go down if the U.S. financial system suddenly stopped attracting an estimated $500 billion-$1 trillion a year in global money laundering. They did not want their government checks jeopardized or their taxes raised because of resulting problems financing the federal government deficit.”
The only real solution for Mexico and the United States is to call off the war on drugs and legalize them universally. Mexico must work to regain its sovereignty and break its ties with the IMF and World Bank. These institutions have only made the economic conditions in Mexico much worse—especially for the poor. They lend money to Mexico on condition that they cut social expenditures in order to repay the loans. Mexico should take its lessons from the Icelandic people and default on their loans. The United States government should promote political parties whose government model is based on the original Republican form of government—designed by our Founding Fathers—that includes an identical Constitution and Bill of Rights.
As for the United States, the $400 million dollars paid annually to Mexico to fight its drug war could be used to strengthen our own border security. Does anyone find it odd that our government provides billions of dollars each year in support of apartheid Israel’s border war, yet no such support is given to the gallant Sheriff’s who are single-handedly fighting the war that rages on our own border?
Some of the same people who provide material and moral support of Israel’s efforts to displace Palestinians from their own land are also the most vocal critics of Arizona’s immigration law. The Democrats, rich billionaires and—of course—the Anti-Defamation League are all among these groups of hypocrites. Their agendas should be quite transparent to everyone. For the Democrats, providing amnesty to illegal aliens gives them a significant voting block. For rich billionaires—like Michael Bloomberg—illegal aliens make useful tools to drive down wages and destroy the middle class. For groups like the ADL, illegal aliens are just another group it can infiltrate so they can later be used as soldiers in their on-going war against American traditions and family values.
Right now, the Mexican people are among the only groups who have resisted the secularism promoted by the ADL, who annually give their “Torch of Freedom” award to pornographers like Hugh Hefner. But if they allow themselves to become allied with that organization, they can expect their women to be seduced into aborting their children, their strong family units broken apart and their Catholic religion attacked. This is the modus operandi of the ADL. And if anyone doubts that, just ask members of the African American community whose groups were infiltrated by the ADL and have since wised up and (for the most part) distanced themselves from this poisonous and destructive influence.
As Americans, we should be concerned about our Mexican neighbors. If your neighbor’s house falls into disrepair and becomes unlivable, you may take those people in for a time. But if they fail to do the proper repairs themselves, you may offer to lend a hand. This is exactly what we need to do with Mexico. We need to help make their country a place worth living in. That’s exactly what needs to happen—and that’s precisely why it won’t happen. What’s good for the people is not what is good for the New World Order. They don’t want you to have a nice house on a nice street. They want to bulldoze both your properties. Then they’ll whisper in your ear, “your neighbor did it” and whisper the same thing in your neighbor’s ear. Then you’ll both be homeless, penniless and fighting in the street until a police car rolls up and takes you away.
When the New World Order comes to town, they set up shop just like Wal-Mart: a giant alien spacecraft that lands in the center of town. They say they come in peace as they pull out their ray guns. Moments later—three family grocers, two pharmacies, a tire shop, a photo mat and an appliance center are all vaporized. And instead of storming the behemoth—the locals flock to it, become its slave and wonder how they ever lived without it.
Now, if you’ll excuse me…I need to go out and buy a replacement printer cartridge. Let’s see, it’s 3am….hmmm. I wonder what might be open at this hour?
