The CIA Criminal Empire that Started with Operation Gladio – The Weekend ShockCast

What you are about to listen to, in one sense, is something that has been years in the making. For years, I have wondered at how Afghanistan could be the source of 93% of the world’s heroin. I just couldn’t understand how the US Air Force could completely control the airspace of Afghanistan, while thousands of square miles of opium poppies were under cultivation.

We could see those poppy fields from the air, and could have sprayed them with any of the massively potent herbicides at our disposal, but we didn’t.

Why?

We had satellites that monitored everything that went on in Afghanistan – along with everything that went in and out of Afghanistan. There was seemingly no way that so much heroin could actually be leaving such a remote, land-locked country that was under the complete control of the United States military.

The CIA and Chinese Heroin – Gladio Part 2

As I said yesterday, intelligence operations are expensive. We already know the cost of wars, but very few understand the incredible costs required to maintain intelligence gathering networks and engage in covert operations.

Furthermore, governments like to keep their hands clean. They want to be able to say that the assassination of such and so was a complete surprise and none of their doing. This is part of why intelligence organizations like to have secret sources of income so that they can operate freely, without having to justify their actions.

Oh, and there’s this very interesting phrase:

Follow the money.

You find some very interesting people, when you do that.

The Weekend Review and ShockCast 001

Okay, I’ve decided to launch into something a little new, since I don’t talk so much about the news during the week. Sometimes I will, but often I won’t. I also want to provide something of a compilation of the week’s news to help you stay on top of what is important.

The Weekend ShockCast won’t be all the news, but it will be the most important.

Lord willing, this will go out on Friday afternoons (EST). So, join me for the very first Weekend Review and ShockCast.

2019 – The Difficult Year

At the beginning of January, it is a tradition to try and forecast the events of the coming year. And, I’ve tried to do that, every year, with limited success. Timing is not my strength, as I have demonstrated over the past few years. Having said that, there aren’t many who have done any better. So, I’m in good company.

However, there is one thing that I can predict with a great deal of confidence:

2019 will be difficult.

My fear is that this will be a great understatement. I certainly hope that it will be smooth sailing with perfect sunsets and fields of green. But, don’t bet on it.

Enter the Gray Rhino

For the past two weeks, the People’s Bank of China (PBOC) has been referring to a term that few have heard before. It’s a ‘Gray Rhino’. (or Grey Rhino, for you Brits) That term refers to risks that everyone sees, but doing nothing to resolve.

Unfortunately, that’s the age that we are living in. There are ‘Gray Rhinos’ trampling the world. They are everywhere, and it’s appalling that we are doing precisely nothing to stop their destruction of our civilization. These risks are obvious, but we are too corrupt to do anything about them.

It’s an utterly maddening phenomenon.
