Banks Launder Billions in Illegal Cartel Money While Snubbing Legal Marijuana Businesses

The hypocrisy of the role that banks play in the drug trade is disgraceful.

Bank of America, Western Union, and JP Morgan, are among the institutions allegedly involved in the drug trade. Meanwhile, HSBC has admitted its laundering role, and evaded criminal prosecution by paying a fine of almost $2 billion. The lack of imprisonment of any bankers involved is indicative of the hypocritical nature of the drug war; an individual selling a few grams of drugs can face decades in prison, while a group of people that tacitly allow – and profit from – the trade of tons, escape incarceration.

Essentially, the current banking system implicitly tolerates the handling of violent cartels’ illegal assets, but blocks the legal and legitimate business of the Coloradan marijuana industry.

Economically feasible flying car? Maybe.

But wholly infeasible in implementation.

Right now, vehicles are constrained to roadways with traffic lights, Stop Signs, Yield Signs and all sorts of controls.

Now imagine no roads, no signs and absolutely no constraints in the air. Airliner traffic is getting worse by the year and you want to fill the skies with hundreds of millions of finger-flicking madmen?

Add to this, the Magic Negro saying that Marijuana smoking is no big deal........

His legacy of diminishing America's presence as a super power and aiming for third world status?

Years from now, historians may regard the 2008 election of Barack Obama as an inscrutable and disturbing phenomenon, the result of a baffling breed of mass hysteria akin perhaps to the witch craze of the Middle Ages. How, they will wonder, did a man so devoid of professional accomplishment beguile so many into thinking he could manage the world's largest economy, direct the world's most powerful military, execute the world's most consequential job?

Imagine a future historian examining Obama's pre-presidential life: ushered into and through the Ivy League, despite unremarkable grades and test scores along the way; a cushy non-job as a "community organizer;" a brief career as a state legislator devoid of legislative achievement (and in fact nearly devoid of his attention, less often did he vote "present"); and finally an unaccomplished single term in the United States Senate, the entirety of which was devoted to his presidential ambitions.

He left no academic legacy in academia, authored no signature legislation as a legislator. And then there is the matter of his troubling associations: the white-hating, America-loathing preacher who for decades served as Obama's "spiritual mentor;" a real-life, actual terrorist who served as Obama's colleague and political sponsor. It is easy to imagine a future historian looking at it all and asking: how on Earth was such a man elected president?

Not content to wait for history, Norman Podhoretz addressed the question recently in the Wall Street Journal:

To be sure, no white candidate who had close associations with an outspoken hater of America like Jeremiah Wright and an unrepentant terrorist like Bill Ayers, would have lasted a single day.

BUT BECAUSE MR. OBAMA WAS BLACK, and therefore entitled in the eyes of liberal Dom to have hung out with protesters against various American injustices, even if they were 'a bit' extreme, he was given a pass.

Let that sink in: Obama was given a pass - held to a lower standard because of the color of his skin.

Podhoretz continues: And in any case, what did such ancient history matter when he was also so articulate and elegant and (as he himself had said) "non-threatening," all of which gave him a fighting chance to become the first black president and thereby to lay the curse of racism to rest?

Secret Service visits Florida candidate after Obama execution comment

Comments made on the social media accounts for Florida House candidate Joshua Black got him a lot of attention, even from the Secret Service.

On Monday, the person operating Black's campaign Twitter account retweeted a comment from another account that read, "I'm past impeachment. It's time to arrest and hang him high," referring to President Barack Obama. The word "Agreed" was added with the retweet.

Although Black insists that it wasn't meant as a threat, the comment was enough to get him a visit from the Secret Service on Tuesday, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

Among the people who bashed Black comments was Gov. Rick Scott, who tweeted that Black should "immediately withdraw his candidacy."

But that's something Black won't do, he told the newspaper.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-poli...
he thought. isn't that an opinion?
and anyway, didn't Obama say "terror attack"? day after?
why you folks even think the whole video/not video thing is important is something that i don't see. it's not like it helped Obama win the election. he was going to win no matter the circumstance.
one of these days conservatives are just going to have to admit that Obama is in the WH because of conservatives. all the excuses are not going to win new voters.
You're lying for him again, a**hole. The "terrorist" reference was NOT related to Benghazi. How many times did Obama and various members of his administration, tell us, with straight faces I might add, that it was the video???
How can one avoid his being in the White House? Why do you think this White House has lost all credibility? Maybe if we changed it's name.......

Good, concise post.

The Liberal Media groomed the Magic Negro along with people like George Soros who also hates America and has said as much often.

The Magic Negro did NOT reach the drivers seat by his talents but by the manipulations and machinations of some really slick evil-doers with money and power.

He is a boy in the candy store with a wallet he stole from his white middle class neighbor....

Podhoretz puts his finger, I think, on the animating pulse of the Obama phenomenon - AFFIRMATIVE ACTION.

Not in the legal sense, of course. But certainly in the motivating sentiment behind all affirmative action laws and regulations, which are DESIGNED PRIMARILY TO MAKE WHITE PEOPLE, AND ESPECIALLY WHITE LIBERALS, FEEL GOOD ABOUT THEMSELVES.

Unfortunately, minorities often suffer so that whites can pat themselves on the back.

Liberals routinely admit minorities to schools for which they are not qualified, yet take no responsibility for the inevitable poor performance and high drop-out rates which follow.

Liberals don't care if these minority students fail; liberals aren't around to witness the emotional devastation and deflated self-esteem resulting from the racist policy that is affirmative action.

Yes, racist. Holding someone to a separate standard merely because of the color of his skin - that's affirmative action in a nutshell, and if that isn't racism, then nothing is.

And that is what America did to Obama.

True, Obama himself was never troubled by his lack of achievements, but why would he be?

As many have noted:

* Obama was told he was good enough for Columbia despite undistinguished grades at Occidental;

* Obama was told he was good enough for the US Senate despite a mediocre record in Illinois;

* Obama was told he was good enough to be president despite no record at all in the Senate.

All his life, every step of the way, Obama was told he was good enough for the next step, in spite of ample evidence to the contrary.

What could this breed if not the sort of EMPTY NARCISSISM on display every time Obama speaks?

In 2008, many who agreed that he lacked executive qualifications nonetheless raved about Obama's oratory skills, intellect, and cool character.

Those people ought now to be deeply embarrassed. And while he is far less popular with record low approval rating, many and especially the lame stream media are still struggling to pretend he is not a failure. They downplay by under-reporting rather than constructively criticize his many-Gates. And wag the tail of the dog as often as needed to divert attention to his many scandals and lack of accomplishments.

And then you have the pathetic groupies here who spend their lives posting in support of Obama. Like the woman at the Town Hall meeting who said, "I'm one of your middle class Americans. And quite frankly, I'm exhausted. Exhausted of defending you, defending your administration, defending the mantle of change that I voted for.

If she was tired a couple of years ago when she said that to Obama, and its only gotten worse with ObamaCare now a PROVEN MAN-CAUSED DISASTER, that poor woman must be in a coma by now.

Let me explain. The drone technology that is being invented to allow them to fly in the city will make cars also to fly. Sense and avoid technology plus GPS systems will take the cotrols out of human hands and quite possibly make it far safer than what we have now. Yes the Jetsons was a visionary concept.
