Obama Campaign Getting Mexican Drug Money

Why isn’t the Mexican cartel shut down?

we know that the U.s. can shut down a drug cartel as in the case of the Colombian Medellin cartel of Pablo Escobar fame. The U.S. has the resources to do it in a very short period of time. The problem is that they shut down the Colombian drug franchise to open the Mexican franchise. It’s easier to get the drugs into the states. I personally suspect that the assasination of Mexican presidential candidate Luis Donaldo Colosio was part of the operation to usher in the drug franchise.

since George Soros was the major player/financier in bringing Obama into the presidency, and since Soros is a personal financial advisor to the Queen, and since the HSBC has was started as a British opium bank, did drug money find it’s way into the Obama 2008 campaign? And, is drug money finding it’s way into the Obama 2012 campaign? Is this why the war to our south is being ignored and allowed to escalate? Is the drug money laundering a back door bailout for the Wall Street banks? If we shut down the drug trade will many of the banks collapse?

First, here are some things that we know. President Obama was put into office by Wall Street and City of London finance. That is, the main player in helping the Obama campaign get going was George Soros, one of the world’s biggest speculators and a personal financial advisor to the Queen of England. He took Obama around New York and introduced Obama to all the big financiers on Wall Street at the beginning of his campaign. The first thing Obama did after getting into office was to bail out Wall Street.

The Mexican cartels are making billions on the drug trade. All that money has to go somewhere. You can’t hide it under your matress. So, it goes through the banking system, laundered, turing dirty money into “clean” money. This could only be possible with the witting complicity of the banks, like HSBC, earlier Wachovia (now Wells Fargo), and many others including, most recently. one of the Queen’s personal banks, Coutts & Co.

Well just because you hate Detroit doesn't mean others will. Just stay in your bubble and let people make their own decisions and opinions about Detroit other than the drivel dripping from your mouth.

ya got it all wrong again clyde.

I don't hate Detroit at all. I actually have fond memories of Detroit.

what I do hate is what has happen to a really once proud city brought to ruin by out of control blacks with guns drugs and no moral compass.

The history of Detroit tells the story better than I can. But the end of the city came when out of control blacks burned and looted the city in the 70's.

Absolutely no reason or justification for that to happen.
The national guard state police should have been brought in to take the guns drugs , looters off the streets, a hard crack down on the people doing to crimes.

But crime has been allowed to flourish in Detroit which is why you have such a dysfunctional social and fiscal mess today.

Remember clyde what you subsidize you get more of what you tax you get less of,

now look around your Detroit of today and see what 60 years of liberal tax and spend policy by one political party and inept black mismanagers working with hand in hand greedy unions and allowing black crime to flourish have done to the once proud city.

This is what you folks voted for all those years with straight democrat tickets and black morons to mismanage your city. How do you like your city today??

The only thing people need to know about Detroit is that it should have been bulldozed and made into a parking lot 10 years ago.

My whole contention with your argument is that you seem to place all the blame on blacks and Democrats. The Free Press and Time magazine wrote very good articles on why the city took a steep tumble. The tumble began before Coleman A. Young. Yes blacks had a part in Detroit's downfall and some Democrats did. It's not fair, though, to place a good portion of the blame on blacks and Democrats.

National Review’s John Derbyshire says there is a talk that non-black Americans have with their children about race too. Derbyshire wrote about this in his post The Talk: Non-Black Version where he describes the racist views that he has instilled in his own children.

The outrageous content of his blog has many calling for him to be fired.

Here are 9 points he shares that every White parent should tell their children:
&#9726;Avoid concentrations of blacks not all known to you personally.
&#9726;Stay out of heavily black neighborhoods.
&#9726;If planning a trip to a beach or amusement park at some date, find out whether it is likely to be swamped with blacks on that date (neglect of that one got me the closest I have ever gotten to death by gunshot).
&#9726;Do not attend events likely to draw a lot of blacks.
&#9726;If you are at some public event at which the number of blacks suddenly swells, leave as quickly as possible.
&#9726;Do not settle in a district or municipality run by black politicians.
&#9726;Before voting for a black politician, scrutinize his/her character much more carefully than you would a white.
&#9726;Do not act the Good Samaritan to blacks in apparent distress, e.g., on the highway.
&#9726;If accosted by a strange black in the street, smile and say something polite but keep moving.”

Yes the decline began before Young was elected but his mismanagement of the situation accelerated the decline.

Things could of and show have been turned around when he became mayor but alas and alack they did not.

History of Detroit shows that the unqualified elected black democrats working with corrupt unions to hold and stay in power have brought Detroit to the fiscal mess it is in today.

there were no other political parties,no republicans, no other races involved.

A real functioning two party political system with real checks and balances could have prevented or at least reduced the effects the abuses that took place in Detroit city hall.

Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Frankly in the case of Detroit there is no one else to blame for the fiscal failure.

For the past 35 plus years black liberal democrats working with corrupt unions have mismanaged the opportunities they were given by the majority black voters of Detroit.
