Ronald Reagan- The CIA, the Contras and Crack Cocaine

The CIA planes brought guns, washing machines, gourmet food, and fancy furniture intto Colombia and took drugs back to the U.S.”Some of the people involved in drug smuggling are present or past agents of the Central Intelligence Agency.”

The lead DEA agent in Central America tried to tell Bush that “something funny” was going on 

Palatio’s involvement came about from her relationship with an upper-class Colombian whose social circle included 3people deeply involved in the drug trade,2 she told Senator Kerry in her 1986 statement to his narcotics committee. Concerned for the safety of her daughter, she eventually volunteered to work with the FBI in the early 1980s, because, she said, “I was angry about what drugs were doing to the people I knew and to the United States government itself.”

FORMER DEA AGENT BLOWS THE WHISTLE
Celerino Castillo III, a 15-year veteran of the Drug Enforcement Administration, observed first-hand a drug-smuggling operation in the mid-180s at the Ilopango airport, a military facility under the direct control of the CIA and Lt. Col. Oliver North during the colonel’s heady days at the National Security Council. But it was on January 14, 1986, the day he met then-Vice President George Bush at a Guatemalan embassy reception, that Castillo became truly concerned about what he had witnessed.

The lead DEA agent in Central America, Castillo tried to tell Bush that “something funny” was going on at Ilopango. “But he just shook my hand, smiled and walked away from me,” Castillo recently recalled in an interview. Later that same day, he says, Bush met with North and Contra leader Adolfo Calero.

Castillo, in-country agent for the DEA, went on to gather evidence that was formally documented in a Feb. 14, 1989, memo to his Guatemala-based DEA supervisor. He detailed how known traffickers with multiple DEA files used Hangars Four and Five in Llopango for drug smuggling. Despite their backgrounds, asserted Castillo in the memo, the traffickers had obtained U.S. visas. Furthermore, said Castillo, “the CIA owned one hangar, and the National Security Council ran the other.”

“There is no doubt that they [agents from the U.S. government] were running large quantities of cocaine into the U.S. to support the Contras,” Castillo said. “We saw the cocaine and we saw boxes full of money. We’re talking about very large quantities of cocaine and millions of dollars.”

According to Castillo, “my reports contain not only the names of traffickers, but their destinations, flight paths, tail numbers, and the date and time of each flight.” Castillo said that he was told by his supervisor to lay low and that if he did go ahead and disclose the information he had gathered, he might be jeopardizing his career because he had stumbled onto a “White House” operation.

Despite Castillo’s impending silence, further evidence of the contra-cocaine connection supporting his accounts was revealed 10 years ago in the form of an internal document of the since-disbanded Select House Committee on Narcotics Abuse and Control.

In a syndicated Newsday article on March 31, 1987, contents of an eight-page June 25, 1986, staff memorandum clearly stated that “a number of individuals who supported the Contras and who participated in Contra activity in Texas, Louisiana, California and Florida, as well as in Honduras, Nicaragua and Costa Rica, have suggested that cocaine is being smuggled in the U.S. through the same infrastructure which is procuring, storing and transporting weapons, explosives, ammunition and military equipment for the Contras from the United States.”

Blum testified that the civil war provided clandestine air strips, cowboy pilots who would fly junker airplanes, people who would make arrangements for the clandestine movement of money — all of which were “perfect facilities for someone in the drug business. So there were people who were connected very directly to the CIA who had those facilities, and allowed them to be used, and indeed, personally profited from their use.”

The wealthy and powerful try to keep us dazed and confused. It can be seen as the logical outcome of our following a path we have been on for many decades. We appear to be on a runaway train and the conductor is dead at the controls.

Svengali as a spider in his web

The enemy is brownness and whiteness, maleness and femaleness. The enemy is our urgent need to stereotype and close off people, places, and events into isolated categories. Hatred, distrust, irresponsibility, unloving, classism, sexism, and racism, in their myriad forms, cloud our vision and isolate us…. We close off avenues of communication and vision so that individual and communal trust, responsibility, loving, and knowing are impossible.

It also could be because they want to influence your thinking BEFORE you have time to actually try to think for yourselves. They spin and distort the news, they pick and choose what stories and images to show or omit.

Lawyer’s being Fined by Judges Silence the Voice of Victims Judicially

Fluker-rally-Vanessa-297x300

          Adegbile, a longtime official at the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, was praised by supporters for his legal skills and critics leveled few if any objections to his record as an advocate for voting rights cases who has argued before the Supreme Court.
But Republicans, backed by the National Fraternal Order of Police, said Adegbile’s connection with the legal case of Mumia Abu-Jamal disqualified him from holding high public office.
          GMAC Mortgage, the company under siege by numerous state attorneys general and members of Congress for its use of dubious foreclosure legal filings, trying to silence the lawyer who exposed the bank’s practices? So says Thomas Cox, the Maine attorney whose case is at the center of GMAC’s ongoing debacle.
It’s been a rough few weeks for GMAC Mortgage, a subsidiary of the bank Ally Financial, which was bailed out by American taxpayers in 2008 to the tune of $16 billion. The first domino fell when Bloomberg reported on September 20 about a leaked internal memo directing mortgage brokers in 23 states to halt foreclosure evictions and sales, adding that the company may “need to take corrective action in connection with some foreclosures.”
VANESSA FLUKER, THE PEOPLE’S LAWYER, AND JUDGE ROBERT COLOMBO, JR., ROYAL BANK OF SCOTLAND’S FRIEND –
The Government insured these loans and has paid the full cost of defaulted mortgages to the original lenders, [who received billions in tax-funded bail-outs to boot]. This is despite the fact that only a very small percentage of the lenders complied with the requirements of the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) that they negotiate affordable terms with homeowners to keep them in their homes. – 
Come Home To Detroit
on March 1, 2011, Michigan Third Circuit Court Judge Robert Colombo, Jr. assessed $12,200 in sanctions against this distinguished attorney and her client for what he called a “vexatious appeal” of an eviction stemming from a foreclosure by RBS Services (Royal Bank of Scotland). Her support committee is trying to raise $18,000 to allow for late fees to keep her out of jail for contempt. – 
“We must understand the vast profit the banks are making off the people,” Fluker said. “I have numerous clients who are making their mortgage payments every month and still get foreclosure notices. But no one will work with them because of the profit the banks can get out of foreclosing on them. We have to let the banks, the legal system and the legislatures know that we will NOT take this anymore!” – 
chevine KingAlbany attorney Chevene B. King Jr. was recently ordered to pay Early County $90,000 in attorney’s fees bringing an end to litigation stemming from a 2004 lawsuit filed by King on behalf of the family of an inmate who committed suicide in the Early County Jail.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation had concluded the 2002 hanging death of Fernandez Thomas, in jail on DUI charges, was a suicide. King filed the lawsuit two years later on behalf of Thomas’ family which included a number of allegations, including several of the defendants “physically and brutally attacked” Thomas, causing his suicide. With the defendants on the verge of being awarded summary judgement, King asked the complaints be dismissed.
The district court denied the defendants’ requests to recover attorney’s fees. The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals overturned that decision, however, and remanded the case back to the district court.
On March 30, 2012, U.S. District Judge Louis Sands signed an order instructing the plaintiff’s counsel — Chevene B. King Jr. — to pay defendants $94,5415.81 in attorney’s fees.
The court documents note that King never presented the court any facts supporting the plaintiffs’ allegations.
