Yet Another Perspective on the Coup in Turkey: The Drugs Connection

After publishing my initial article on the Turkish “coup” within the context of the drug trade, none other than esteemed researcher Dr. Joseph P. Farrell of Giza Death Star reblogged the entry as well as added his unique perspective (or “high octane speculation,” as he calls it).

Dr. Farrell’s take on international intelligencia from all major nation-states (Russia included) forming a “Sullivan and Cromwell” of sorts for drugs is precisely what I was alluding to when mentioning the “globalization of the drug trade” in my thesis. His elaboration on this notion goes beyond what there was room for in my own article, so I re-present his work here in hopes that inquiring Readers will investigate further. 

Stay tuned! -Rusticus

By Dr. Joseph P. Farrell

In the aftermath of the “coup” in Turkey, there has been so much speculation on who was behind it, and why, that adding yet more grist to the mill may seem counterproductive. After all, too much grist and the mill simply ceases to function. But a regular reader here, Ms. S.H. found this important article, and it’s significant enough that I thought it deserved to be passed along:

As you’ll note, the essence of the article is that the drug trade in opium flows from Afghanistan through Incirlik airbase – which, notably, the Sultan has turned on the power again and allowed NATO bombing missions to continue- and from Incirlik on to the markets in North America and, presumably, Europe.

There’s some nuggets in this article, however, that contain their own clues for some high octane speculation, from the “globalization” of the drug trade:

But quality heroin has done a bit of “Globalization” in its own right, as such “good dope” is no longer the purview of Eastern regions exclusively. Shortly after Colombia and neighboring nations stepped up production of high-grade white heroin, Mexican Cartels (spearheaded by the Sinaloas) abandoned their position as lowly black-tar producers and middle-men, turning Guerrero’s staple cash crop from avocados to poppy in just a few short years:

…to the formation of “Drug trusts” (somewhat misnamed “Cartels”) controlling the entire process from production to distribution, and even allegations that “GMO opium” has also entered the stream of the drug trade:

Some have even speculated that this global heroin explosion and corresponding quality increase is due, in no small part, to the emergence of Genetically Modified poppy plants. While hard evidence of this claim remains elusive, in a world where even GM yeast has proven effective in producing opiods, the thought can hardly be dismissed outright.

All this leads to the following thesis:

This investigation started with questions about the future of the NATO-backed drug terminal run out of Incirlik Air Base amidst ongoing political instability in Turkey; and while this author has succeeded in documenting CIA’s longstanding “alternative” to Incirlik being rapidly built up in West Africa as well as the fever-pitch of development to turn Southern Mexico into the next Northern Afghanistan, I must confess that I do not know exactly what this spells for the future of Turkish regime change.

I can, however, posit a hypothesis: As international gold reserves between West and East are being globalized, world currency holdings between nations via the SDR are being globalized, and the “new energy paradigm” of Agenda 21 is being globalized, is it inconceivable to think that the global drug trade, too, is being “equitably internationalized?”

Unfortunately, I don’t have the answer to this question – but I bet a fly on the wall at last week’s meeting between John Kerry and Vladimir Putin could shed some light on the situation.

So let’s do a bit of high octane speculation. Most readers here are aware that Sultan Erdogan was involved in corruption of his own, soaking up money from ISIS’s oil trade and shipments via Turkey, until Mr. Putin put an end to that. Let us also recall that recent revelations indicate that Erdogan’s government was warned by Russia of an impending coup. Most of the speculation out there has centered upon the idea that with the apparent extent of the coup, it would have been impossible for at least someone’s intelligence services picking up on it. But the entrance of the drug trade into the picture alters this consideration, and not inconsiderably.  I take it as a given that the drug trade is not a CIA-only affair, but rather, that it is the principal means for most intelligence agencies to have access to funds free from the oversight of their respective governments, and that thus, the international “mafia” forms a kind of network of its own, a kind of “power of attorney” for all these intelligence agencies, a kind of “Sullivan and Cromwell” of the underworld, a firm that will broker for anyone for a “cut of the action”. At this deep level, the CIA, FSI, MI6, Mossad, GRU, and so on, are all interconnected. It is an underground information flow. The article itself mentions the late Gary Webb’s research into illicit drug operations of the American intelligence community in this regard. But we might equally mention Stephen Handelman’s Comrade Criminal: Russia’s New Mafiya and its overtones of Russian-KGB and GRU involvement in these drug(and teror) networks for some time. So, could this coup, which followed so quickly upon Mr. Erdogan’s sudden about-face in the Middle East, have provided Mr. Erdogan a golden opportunity not only to break with his Suni-Wahhabist allies of yesterday to pursue Turkey’s own Sufist version of Islamicization, but also have afforded him the opportunity to cash in on a relationship with Russia and China and their “silk road” project, including a hefty piece of the action for the drug trade?

And let’s not hold back in our high octane speculations: could drugs and the domination of Central Asia poppy fields and distribution routes, be what this is all about?

I don’t know about you, but I have a strong suspicion that this is the case.

See you on the flip side…

The Turkish Coup in Context: Redrawing the Map of the CIA Drug Trade

It’s been four short days since the July 15, 2016 coup d’état (color revolution?) attempt in Turkey, and already, the open-source research community is well underway in digesting what’s just occurred. President Recep Erdogan was quick to place the blame at the feet of his long-time political opponent (and likely CIA asset), a multi-billionaire “refugee” hiding out in the woods of western Pennsylvania – cleric Fethullah Gülen. Gülen, in turn, pointed the finger back at Erdogan, suggesting that the coup was staged for the express intent of centralizing authority.

However, the Erdogan v. Gülen feud isn’t what this article is about; at least not directly. There’s a lot for the curious Reader to sink their teeth into there – from the ever-mysterious Gülen’s activities running the largest chain of Charter Schools in America (funded in part by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and currently under investigation by the FBI for money laundering) to Recep Erdogan’s love affair with NATO intelligence just a few years prior. Inquiring minds will quickly concede that this entire Turkish affair is (and has long been) a proverbial rat’s nest of Intelligencia and regime change.

Wherever the rats are scurrying, one’s likely to find some cheese close by – and the opium flows from Afghanistan bound for the Western world provide plenty of it. Buried among the headlines of the day was a story regarding Turkey’s Incirlik Air Base losing power during the attempted coup. When the lights came back on and the dust settled, Incirlik’s NATO-led “anti-Daesh” operations were given the continued green light, though the base’s Turkish commander remains in custody.

While many have been focused on the concerning amount of American nuclear warheads residing in Incirlik, its position as the drop-shipper of refined Afghan heroin bound for Western markets is equally pertinent. A politically uncertain climate in Turkey (to say the least) coupled with the general chaos of the region calls the future of NATO’s longstanding Incirlik drug-running operation into question – and that’s the finest wheel of Dutch Gouda the CIA’s had its mitts on since Iran-Contra.

Fortunately for the Agency (and correspondingly unfortunate for America’s nonviolent prison population), CIA’s “response” to this Turkish chaos has been anything but reactionary. In fact, their preparedness for such a contingency began in earnest years ago – to such an extent that the entire map of the CIA’s post-9/11 drug trade is being redrawn before our very eyes.

The Gulf of Guinea: The New(ish) and (not so) Improved MENA Drug Route

Readers of Stateless Homesteading will recall that back in November of 2015, we published an article detailing the significant uptick in heroin and cocaine trafficking coming from West Africa – an old route once used by CIA front-men Meyer Lansky and “Lucky” Luciano and their Operation Gladio partners in Lebanon, refined opium would make its way from the Middle East to New York via an airport in Accra, Ghana.

With the explosion of Nicaraguan cocaine stemming from Iran-Contra and the boom in Afghan opium that followed, West Africa’s place in Intelligence-backed drug-running has received far less attention in the modern era; that is, until reports began surfacing in 2013 regarding Accra’s Kotoka Airport once again being used for the smuggling of cocaine and heroin. West Africa, after a decades-long hiatus, finds itself in a position of prominence in the international drug trade – ensnared not by the grip of Operation “Gladio A” and the CIA mob syndicate that supported them, but Operation “Gladio B” and the CIA-backed Salafist boogeymen known as “Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb” (AQIM):

Unsurprisingly, the “refreshed” heroin and coke-smuggling syndicate in Ghana includes at least some amount of sponsorship from officialdom, as the former President of Ghana, John Atta Mills, voiced public concerns that elements of his own administration were involved in the trade. He is now deceased. His predecessor, President John Kufor (2000-2008) shared similar concerns, with cables suggesting “suspicions of widespread corruption, including instances where airport security was suspected of tipping off smugglers.”

In other words, 2013 was not the beginning of the CIA’s West African operations – it was instead the boiling point at which pressure had to be relieved through limited public exposure. With a major scandal from “leaked” US Embassy cables detailing the Ghanaian police’s wholesale cooperation with the drug operation, it was nothing short of a declaration of ownership – a coup d’état in its own right:

As a major port for drugs bound to the UK, US, South America, and Western Europe as a whole, Ghana has been actively redesigned over the past decade as NATO’s “backup” of sorts for Incirlik Air Base, with increasing fervor towards this aim beginning in 2013.

Ghana is hardly an “ideal” terminal for would-be drug-runners, though; geographically, it’s farther out of the way from opium producing regions and farther still from target “consumer” markets than the Turkish operation currently is. And as the “Grand Chessboard” in the MENA region is still in the process of being flipped, NATO control of these producing regions generally seems tenuous. In addition to its geographic inconveniences, one of Africa’s chief “illicit” crops, cannabis, is proving increasingly unprofitable in an age of Western legalization and decriminalization.

But if a lone blogger can put that much together, the CIA is certainly aware of West Africa’s shortcomings. Opium, as the British learned over a Century ago, is the most suitable drug for the aims of population control and Empire. The loss of Afghanistan, currently the world’s largest producer of opium, would seemingly be a critical blow to NATO and its “Third British Empire.

Of this, too, the CIA is keenly aware, as our story now makes a Transatlantic voyage to the Mexican State of Guerrero. Previously, the impoverished Southern Mexican countryside had only a meager affiliation with heroin production. This has all changed in just a few short years.

From “Fair Trade” Avocados to Drug Trade Poppies

While NAFTA’s Globalized push for Big Ag “fair trade” fruits and vegetables has hardly served to assist the American or Mexican “working man,” its drug trade certainly has; Mexico, by geographic necessity, is a key trafficking route for Central American cocaine headed to America, as Barry Seal, Oliver North, and a slew of Deep State agents learned during Iran-Contra.

So, too, was this lesson learned by the victims of the crack-cocaine epidemic of the 80s and 90s.

And while “Peruvian Coke” may catch more headlines, Central America has also been (to a lesser extent) a heroin producing region. Previously growing only low-quality brown and black tar heroin, the Central American product was far less preferable compared to Afghan white heroin from the Central Asian Caucasus or poppy from Southeast Asia’s “Golden Triangle” of similar quality.

But quality heroin has done a bit of “Globalization” in its own right, as such “good dope” is no longer the purview of Eastern regions exclusively. Shortly after Colombia and neighboring nations stepped up production of high-grade white heroin, Mexican Cartels (spearheaded by the Sinaloas) abandoned their position as lowly black-tar producers and middle-men, turning Guerrero’s staple cash crop from avocados to poppy in just a few short years:

Screenshot from 2016-07-19 21-03-24

Some have even speculated that this global heroin explosion and corresponding quality increase is due, in no small part, to the emergence of Genetically Modified poppy plants. While hard evidence of this claim remains elusive, in a world where even GM yeast has proven effective in producing opiods, the thought can hardly be dismissed outright.

Speculation aside, the CIA’s own “World Factbook” of 2016 not only notes that Mexico is currently the world’s second largest opium producer behind Afghanistan, but that its dramatic rise in poppy production is “statistically significant” at a 31% increase from 2008 to 2009, the last year the CIA provides such information. As no researcher I’ve yet come across, CIA goons and their MSM lackeys included, has successfully disputed the work of late journalist Gary Webb in cataloging the Agency’s wholesale control over Central and South American drug cartels, I’m left only to conclude that these “World Factbook” statistics are as much the CIA’s personal ledger as they are a PR initiative:

Considering this uptick in heroin production from Southern Mexico corresponds with the timeframe of the now-infamous DOJ gun-running operation known as “Fast and Furious,” the parallels to Iran-Contra couldn’t be more blatant. Though I’ve paraphrased Mark Twain before, the quote remains as applicable as it is timeless: History may not repeat itself, but it sure does rhyme.

The Turkish Context…?

This investigation started with questions about the future of the NATO-backed drug terminal run out of Incirlik Air Base amidst ongoing political instability in Turkey; and while this author has succeeded in documenting CIA’s longstanding “alternative” to Incirlik being rapidly built up in West Africa as well as the fever-pitch of development to turn Southern Mexico into the next Northern Afghanistan, I must confess that I do not know exactly what this spells for the future of Turkish regime change.

I can, however, posit a hypothesis: As international gold reserves between West and East are being globalized, world currency holdings between nations via the SDR are being globalized, and the “new energy paradigm” of Agenda 21 is being globalized, is it inconceivable to think that the global drug trade, too, is being “equitably internationalized?”

Unfortunately, I don’t have the answer to this question – but I bet a fly on the wall at last week’s meeting between John Kerry and Vladimir Putin could shed some light on the situation. Perhaps the Queen of Color Revolution herself, Mrs. Victoria “Fuck the E.U.” Kagan-Nuland, could be on standby for color commentary, as her timely visit to nearby Cyprus discussing the future of Turkey in NATO mere days before the Turkish coup took place is interesting timing, indeed.

One thing, however, is certain: Whether or not NATO retains overt control of Turkey (and even Afghanistan), the international intelligencia responsible for the black market drug trade are more than ready for whatever comes next, up to and including a complete rebalance of power as the region currently knows it. If such meticulous preparedness in bolstering this CIA “cash crop” isn’t evidence of foreknowledge of coups, counter-coups, and purges of all colors in the Turkish political landscape, I don’t know what is.

The extent of that preparedness, nothing short of the complete reinvention of the Western drug trade, also raises far more questions than it does answers. The undertaking of such a monumental task doubtlessly spells correlating monumental changes for the Middle East, a concerning prospect for a land already drenched in decades of blood and Empire.

Like you, Reader, I will be watching for such changes in the coming weeks and months, as I suspect we won’t have to wait long to see these schemes come to fruition.

 

The Sustainable Gladios and the West African Drug Trade

Where in the world do the seemingly disparate ambitions of the “Green Economy,” the international drug trade, State intelligence agencies, and Islamofascists intermingle? In a real Fourth Estate, the front page of the Times or the Post would be viable candidates, but this, unfortunately, is not the world in which we live.

This perplexing blend is relegated to the realm of Deep Politics, the alternative media outlets incredulous enough to cover it, and you, Reader, tenacious enough to consider its implications.

In writing my recent article on the odious debt burden of $22.6 billion to be placed upon the people of Ghana at COP21 this December, any number of motives for this usurious “greening” of the country came to mind; from DeBeers diamond operations to “grey market” Chinese gold mines, from oil and gas transit lines to fertile Cocoa fields, the Gulf of Guinea has much to plunder and many a “geostrategic interest” for would-be Imperialists to exploit.

Among these is the region’s integral (yet often neglected) role in the international drug trade:

Drug Trade

A role in which Ghana and the Gulf of Guinea have been cast for over half a century without so much as a whisper from mainstream American media – likely because the other actors on this stage, the CIA and NATO’s infamous Operation Gladio, would prefer to remain comfortably hidden behind the curtain of “public relations.”

The CIA and Heroin: Picking Up the Post-War Pieces

“Deception is a state of mind and the mind of the State.”

-James Jesus Angleton, Head of CIA Counterintelligence (1954-1974)

During the early reconstruction of Europe following World War II, the fledgling CIA wasted little time in filling the void left by the British “Commonwealth of Nations,” their inheritance of the international heroin trade of chief importance. The men who would make this possible were handed to the late OSS by the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) on a silver platter: A network of Jewish and Italian mob bosses, sprung from jail to assist in the Allied invasion of Europe, who were to be given a second chance at restoring their Prohibition glory days.

This time, however, they wouldn’t be smuggling liquor across State lines, but heroin across international waters. No small feat. If anyone could pull it off, though, it’d be men prepared by a life of covert intelligence operations and black market expertise – and that’s exactly what the CIA had in Meyer Lansky and “Lucky” Luciano.

From 1946 to 1948, Luciano and over 100 of his associates were released from prison and subsequently deported to Italy, with the Justice Department citing “wartime service” as a justification for early release. Comfortably back in Europe with his organization in tact, Luciano worked quickly to ensnare the world opium market. Undeterred by post-war tightening in Italian pharmaceutical regulations, Luciano leveraged his position as an international figure to forge connections with a Lebanese syndicate who would serve as his supply. Of Luciano’s heroin network, Professor Alfred W. McCoy writes:

Morphine base was now the necessary commodity. Thanks to his contacts in the Middle East, Luciano established a long-term business relationship with a Lebanese who was quickly becoming known as the Middle East’s major exporter of morphine base-Sami El Khoury. Through judicious use of bribes and his high social standing in Beirut society, El Khoury established an organization of unparalleled political strength. The directors of Beirut Airport, Lebanese customs, the Lebanese narcotics police, and perhaps most importantly, the chief of the antisubversive section of the Lebanese police, protected the import of raw opium from Turkey’s Anatolian plateau into Lebanon, its processing into morphine base, and its final export to the laboratories in Sicily and Marseille.

Once heroin had been manufactured and packaged for export, Luciano used his Mafia connections to send it through a maze of international routes to the United States. From Europe heroin was shipped directly to New York or smuggled through Canada and Cuba.”

-Alfred W. McCoy, The Politics of Heroin, pg. 22

The profits from this network would pass through the hands of Luciano’s money man, Meyer Lansky, with a significant portion ultimately resting in the coffers of American intelligence agencies.

“After [Luciano] was deported from the United States in 1946, he charged his long-time associate, Meyer Lansky, with the responsibility for managing his financial empire. Lansky also played a key role in organizing Luciano’s heroin syndicate: he supervised smuggling operations, negotiated with Corsican heroin manufacturers, and managed the collection and concealment of the enormous profits.”

-Alfred W. McCoy, The Politics of Heroin, pg. 23

It is by way of the CIA-Luciano-Lansky “maze of international routes” that Ghana originally found itself ensnared in the grip of the Anglo-American Establishment’s heroin trade. While not mentioned in Prof. McCoy’s seminal work on CIA involvement in the heroin market, Ghana was indeed one of the CIA’s original trafficking routes – and remains one to this day.

We know this thanks to a 1952 State Department cable, doubtlessly sent by an enterprising individual who was not “in the know” about ongoing CIA drug operations in the area.

The first documented use of West Africa as a staging post for heroin smuggling dates from 1952, when US officials noted that parcels of the drug were being transported by a Lebanese syndicate from Beirut to New York via Kano and Accra, using couriers on commercial airlines. One of those implicated at the Beirut end of the pipeline was reported to be an Italian intelligence officer; it was not clear whether he was operating with the approval of his superiors. The US consul-general in Lagos was told by a Lebanese source, described as ‘a competent narcotics and diamond smuggler’, that the existing ‘heavy dope traffic’ from the Near East to the USA via Europe was being diverted to Nigeria ‘to an increasing extent’ to avoid the attention of law-enforcement officers on the European route.”

-Prof. Stephen Ellis, West Africa’s International Drug Trade, pg. 174

A Lebanese syndicate? Heroin destined for New York? An Italian intelligence officer? The CIA and the Luciano network hardly attempted to wipe their fingerprints off this one; they simply operated with diplomatic immunity. Things getting too hot in Europe? Ship it through Ghana and Nigeria, the “former” British colonies, where we’ll receive more impunity; it’s “just” the Third World, after all, right?

Two particular nodes of the early CIA heroin trade warrant further investigation: Lebanon and Italy. Like the Iran-Contra scandal, both Italy and Lebanon include not only CIA drug activities, but a corresponding paramilitary element – none other than the NATO operatives from Operation Gladio.

The Seeds of Gladio

Amidst CIA/NATO intelligence chicanery throughout the post-war heroin trade, Western intelligence agencies were also hard at work developing a bulwark against Communism in a most unsavory manner; via the backing of a network of ultranationalists and fascists throughout Europe. Spearheaded by the CIA and MI6, what came to be known as “Operation Gladio” (its working name in Italy) became a “State within a State,” the front lines of a hypothetical World War III against the USSR.

The war never came, but the “Deep State” of Gladio remained in tact and was quickly repurposed for a new task: Flase-flag terror and color revolution. While the Gladio network spanned throughout Western European nations (Austria, Finland, Sweden, Switzerland, among others), its most publicized activities were in Italy, where the Italian justice system attempted to prosecute a number of Gladios throughout the 80s and 90s.

This string of trials gave us a glimpse behind the curtain of Operation Gladio’s covert operations spanning nearly half a century. From staging bombings to be blamed on Communists to a successful coup d’état of a democratically elected Italian government in 1963 code named Operation Piano Solo, the Gladios have had a hand in restricting Italian sovereignty since their inception. Amidst this environment of chaos and political instability, the aim, according to the court testimony of one member of the Gladio team, was to create fear and uncertainty via a tactic known as the Strategy of Tension.

“You had to attack civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple. They were supposed to force these people, the Italian public, to turn to the State to ask for greater security.

Vincenzo Viciguerra on the Strategy of Tension

Not coincidentally, we see this same strategy at play in the 21st Century “Global War on Terror” paradigm: The Hegelian implementation of controlled violence to bring about centralized State authority. The Strategy of Tension lives on, but thanks to the efforts of perceptive and resourceful FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds, we can trace the historical continuity of these efforts. According to Edmonds, the Deep State shifted its paramilitary operations from the ultranationalists of the Cold War to a new force for a New World: Islamofascism.

The plan’s name within the Bureau? Gladio B.

The origins of this operational shift from backing false-flagging European fascists to false-flagging Islamofascists has its clearest genesis in the financing of the Mujahideen/Al-Qaeda by the CIA from the 80s onward – but the spirit of the operation existed simultaneously with “Gladio A” in Lebanon, along the CIA’s heroin route, as far back as 1957; courtesy of Frank Wisner, John Foster Dulles, and the Eisenhower administration:

“The president [Eisenhower] said he wanted to promote the idea of an Islamic jihad against godless communism. ‘We should do everything possible to stress the holy war aspect,’ he said at a September 1957 White House meeting attended by Frank Wisner, Foster Dulles, assistant secretary of state for the Near East William Rountree, and members of the Joint Chiefs. Foster Dulles proposed “a secret task force,” under whose auspices the CIA would deliver American guns, money, and intelligence to King Saud of Saudi Arabia, King Hussein of Jordan, President Camille Chamoun of Lebanon, and President Nuri Said of Iraq.

-Tim Weiner, Legacy of Ashes: The History of the CIA, pg. 137

Guns, drugs, and false-flag terror; a Machiavellian trifecta that always seem to present themselves in the same time and place. Does the international drug trade finance the paramilitary element of these programs? Are profits from CIA drug operations used to prop up the US stock market, as late investigative journalist Mike Ruppert proposed? Is opium merely a convenient tool for eugenics and empire, as the British Empire learned over a century ago?

It’s likely that all three of these elements are at play, and the people of Ghana are not immune to their tainting effects.

The Sustainable Gladios and “Plan B” in Ghana

While the days of heroin-smuggling CIA Mafioso are behind us, the boogeyman selected to fill the void – the “Islamic fundamentalists” of Gladio B – have not neglected their position in the Great Game as the Anglo-American Establishment’s chief MENA drug-runners. The accounts of Sibel Edmonds on this topic revolve primarily around the importance of Turkey and Azerbaijan as key refining and trafficking regions for NATO/Al-Qaeda heroin.

Unbeknownst to to this author until recently, however, is evidence suggesting that the Gulf of Guinea is also a hotbed for Gladio B smuggling; not only of Afghan heroin, but African cocaine destined for Western markets as well.

At the heart of this recent upsurge in the region’s drug trade are the Gladio B assets known to the public as Al-Qaeda; with a stranglehold on the country of Mali via the CIA-backed Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), the Gladios have found the neighboring nation of Ghana to be a highly convenient hub for heroin and coke bound for the Western world:

Screenshot from 2015-11-07 15:20:03Screenshot from 2015-11-07 15:21:25

AQIM’s airport of choice? None other than Ghana’s largest international hub, the Kotoka International Airport in Accra – the very same airport which the CIA’s Italian Gladio A network smuggled heroin through over half a century ago.

The historical continuity couldn’t be more obvious.

“Given the use of West Africa by Lebanese smugglers in more recent times, it is an intriguing question whether there has been a highly discreet narcotics pipeline linking Lebanon and West Africa to the consumer markets of North America and Western Europe in continuous operation for more than fifty years. The presence of a murky official element in the person of an Italian intelligence officer is also of interest, as narcotics smuggling the world over seems to have become intertwined with the work of secret intelligence agencies from an early period.

-Prof. Stephen Ellis, West Africa’s International Drug Trade, pg. 174

To Prof. Ellis’ point, over fifty years of NATO drug smuggling in Ghana is not merely an “intriguing question.” It’s a well-documented fact; but a fact that can only be divined when armed with the foreknowledge of the CIA’s twin Operation Gladios, the latter of which, Gladio B, is relegated to the realm of taboo within academia and media alike.

Ghana, drenched in oil, laden with gold, and as demonstrated herein, a key component in the international drug trade, is far too valuable a target not to be further colonized by the First World. This perspective sheds new light on the Neomalthusian “sustainable development” debt load of $22.6bn the U.N. is attempting to place upon Ghana, as this influx of cash won’t simply be allocated towards building a “greener” Panopticon.

It will be used to line the pockets of the corrupt government officials and police who allow the CIA drug trade to continue in Ghana unabated. It will be used to keep the people of Ghana impoverished and powerless against the marauding forces of Globalism. It will be used to enrich the elite as well as the Deep State they helm.

Unlike half a century ago, however, when American intelligence control of global opium markets was young and undocumented, we are now equipped with the retrospection of history; knowledge that, when utilized by enough inquiring minds like your own, Reader, provides hope that the next fifty years might be different than the last.

Agenda 2030: Bankrupting the Third World, One Country at a Time

The destiny of Africa has, for centuries, been usurped by conquerors; whether it be the East India Company’s mercantile slave trade, the imperialistic campaigns of Cecil John Rhodes, or the IMF’s economic hitmen of today, the eugenic aims of the Anglo-American Establishment towards the people of Africa (and the vast natural resources they sit upon) has continued unabated for hundreds of years.

Agenda 2030 is set to take the subjugation of Africa to previously unimagined heights, with the rest of the Third World to follow shortly thereafter.

“I contend that we are the first race in the world, and that the more of the world we inhabit the better it is for the human race…If there be a God, I think that what he would like me to do is paint as much of the map of Africa British Red as possible.

-Cecil J. Rhodes

While the true scope and depravity held in store for Africa at COP21 won’t be known to us until later this year, at least one nation, Ghana, has submitted its draft budget to the United Nations in advance of the Conference. The projected cost figure, if accurate, would be the next in a long chain of abuses against Ghana by Globalist entities like the IMF and multinational corporations alike.

Ghana finds itself precariously situated between the geopolitical aims of two power factions on the “2D Chessboard” in the form of the Anglo-American Establishment and China. American colonization of Ghana by corporate entities and NGOs, draping themselves in the facade of benevolence, have a consistent track-record of introducing eugenic experiments in the region, often masked as philanthropy; “feeding the hungry” and “healing the sick” are the constant clarion calls of these wolves in sheep’s clothing.

Monsanto is one such example. Long known by alternative media readers as the developers of deadly GMO frankenfoods like Golden Rice, Africa is a favorite dumping ground for “beta testing” these biotechnologies. Perhaps because of the Power Elite’s intense hatred for the world’s “non-white peoples,” perhaps as a gambit to blanket the continent in patented seeds, thereby owning the land itself, Monsanto’s insidious activity in Africa has not left Ghana unscathed.

The UN's agricultural plans for Africa, as noted in UNCTAD's policy brief on Climate Change

The UN’s agricultural plans for Africa, as noted in UNCTAD’s policy brief on Climate Change

Earlier this year, Ghana was the target of a new set of draconian G7 regulations set to outlaw seed sharing. Known colloquially as the “Monsanto Law,” the bill is endemic of Agenda 21’s planned control of land use and agriculture.

In addition to GMOs, the Anglo-American Establishment has foist upon Ghana another lab-created eugenic tool: Vaccines “coded for race.” This issue, recently brought to the House floor by Rep. Bill Posey of Florida, was once was constrained to the realm of science fiction; this is no longer the case, as the use of vaccines as race-specific bioweapons has now been enumerated upon by Congressmen and CDC whistleblowers alike.

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, virtually synonymous with vaccines in the Third World, have also been hard at work “thinning the herd” in Ghana; the same Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation that is now under criminal investigation for experimenting with vaccines on children in tribal populations without their consent.

As previously mentioned, the Anglo-American Establishment is not the only group with imperialistic aims in Ghana, as China’s underground network of mines blanketing the nation, most notably those satiating her voracious appetite for gold, have brought hellish working conditions for Ghana’s native populace:

It remains to be seen what the character of the public-private partnership mentioned above will be in Ghana, but the resource-rich, salary-deprived nation has a plethora of options. American biotech firms? Chinese infrastructure companies? A hefty loan from the IMF, or the BRICS New Development Bank, perchance?
