Well it was good someone finally turned up some evidence. Recently the New York Times reported U.S. Agents Launder Mexican Profits of Drug Cartels.
As it launders drug money, the agency often allows cartels to continue their operations over months or even years before making seizures or arrests.
When asked how much money had been laundered as a part of the operations, the official would only say, “A lot.”
“If you’re going to get into the business of laundering money,” the official added, “then you have to be able to launder money.”
So they do their evil deeds and call them good. They set up idols which they claim to hate but worship them incessantly.
Why else do you think they also say, “do you think that if we legalized drugs, the cartels would just go away?” Well, the U.S. government, other governments, and the U.N. are hard at working to make that a self-fulfilling prophecy.
But us reformers know that they ONLY way to defeat the black market as much as possible is to take the profit motive from it.
Like I hinted at in the title, that our own government launders money is not really news to people who have been following drug policy reform. I would say the real news is how they managed to only learn about hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars. By many people’s account, the illicit drug trade is at least tens of billions of dollars per year. (The NYT article estimates $18 billion to $39 billion just between the U.S. and Mexico.)
And as far as I’m concerned this is just more proof that our government agencies have been infiltrated by multiple Drug Trafficking Organizations. If it was just one DTO then we might not have found out about this, but they are a competitive bunch, and don’t mind the other ones getting in trouble from time to time.
This is just more evidence why those in power will be cast out, and if we humans can’t depose them, God will. And by that time it will be an eternal banishment.
Jesus really pleads with his followers to not be deceived.
The horrors of Prohibition have been reported on for at least 100 years, and they only get worse, why? Not because of drugs, but because Prohibition is intrinsically flawed, it props up prices and that drives many people to enter the market and spread their products around as much as possible.
You may think you will not have to “pay” for what they are doing, but you will. You blind yourselves and block your ears to the evils which are being done in your name. Our government is torturing people for you. Our government is murdering people for you. Our government is sending guns to kill people in your name. Our government is spreading drugs in neighborhoods it doesn’t like. Our government launders money for the Drug Trafficking Organizations.
Please tell me where Jesus said we had to kill people in order to capture killers. Please tell me where he said we needed to commit fraud in order to entrap fraudsters. Where in the Bible does Jesus say we must steal in order to catch thieves?
Jesus spoke about these people when he said that people would come in his name and claim to work for him. But in multiple places in scripture Jesus says what he will do about them; read them all yourself please, here’s one such place, Matthew 7:15-23.
Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.
Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.
Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’
Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’
If you think you are loving, but you support Prohibition, you are wrong.
The article concludes
But there has been no significant dip in the volume of drugs moving across the country. Reports of human rights violations by police officers and soldiers have soared. And drug-related violence has left more than 40,000 people dead since Mr. Calderón took office in December 2006.
Jesus shouted, “all the righteous blood shed will be on your head.” If you really do serve the only one True God, then you will follow Jesus’ advice and fear ONLY God, and serve ONLY him.
