KNOCK-OFF HANDBAGS AND MEDIA PIRACY FUND TERRORISM

325634Article by Mark I Rasskazov, Editor in Chief.

Forget drugs, forget oil, forget wealthy religious extremists — the fiat currency of terrorism is knock-off handbags and bootleg DVDs: so says a source I’ve spoken to who shall remain anonymous.  According to this source, these kinds of items, along with knock-off Tiffanys’ jewelry items and other counterfeited luxury items, are the primary means by which criminals and terrorists get their money from «Point A» to «Point B.»

It seems unbelievable.  It’s certainly one of the most under-reported aspects of the criminal world, if true.

So I did some research.

DVD RAROS BOOTLEGRonald K. Noble of Interpol via the LA Times: «The global trade in counterfeit goods is estimated at $400 billion to $450 billion a year.»  Later in the article, he is quoted as saying that: «Counterfeit cigarette trafficking by paramilitary groups in Northern Ireland and profits from counterfeit CDs and other goods being funneled to Hezbollah in the Mideast.»

Hitha Prabhakar, a noted investigative journalist, wrote an entire book on the subject.  At the beginning of the book, she quotes a review of it by one Dana Thomas: «Counterfeiting is one of the least-acknowledged, most-damaging crimes of our time. In Black Market Billions, Hitha exposes this nefarious world of the violent syndicates and the crimes they commit—human trafficking, forced child labor, money laundering—and discovers that the profits fund even worse acts such as terrorism.  You’ll never look at a fake Louis Vuitton handbag the same way again.»

It seems the issue is important enough to have garnered the attention of Congress, as well.

terrorismIt has been put to me in the following manner: «You cannot board a cruise ship with more than $9,999.99; if you want to transport $10,000.00, the way you do it: you take a bunch of knock-off hand-bags and sell them to a contact in the destination country.  Every time we catch a terrorist, he’s holed up with weapons, explosives, and tens of thousands of bootleg CDs.»

It seems heroin is for amateurs.  The pros deal in faux Versace, apparently.

MONROE COUNTY, KENTUCKY TRANSITIONS FROM CAPITALISM TO FASCISM IN FIVE YEARS

fascism1Article by Mark I Rasskazov, Editor in Chief.

On 14 MARCH 2013, I had the pleasure of hosting an impromptu interview with one Troy Murphy from Monroe County, Kentucky, which I recorded on my phone (you can listen to the entire interview via the embedded YouTube video at the bottom of this article).

In this interview, Mr. Murphy describes how the Philip Morris Company bought out the local tobacco farmers in Monroe County, and about how this subsequently destroyed the local economy, leading to an incredibly corrupt police state, riddled with drug use, murder, theft, and the employment of illegal immigrants, even as legitimate employment dramatically dropped.

When I did some research on the subject on my own, I discovered something astounding: this was conducted with state funds.  Here we have a case of a private company buying out local farmers with tax dollars, and then bringing in illegal immigrants to run the super plantations.  This describes a transition from a free-market economy to a state-sponsored big business model.  In other words, this describes a transition from capitalism to fascism.  This process took 5 years, and by the end, Monroe County had become a police state.

This case is interesting in that it illustrates the difference between the capitalist and fascist models, and demonstrates the socio-economic consequences of giving up one in favor of the other.

Also, for any would be tobacco farmer, there’s a wealth of used equipment that can be had at rock bottom prices in Kentucky.  This might be a good opportunity for someone who wants to create an «all natural tobacco» start-up of some kind (most industrial tobacco is GMO, now).

After I had closed out the interview, Mr. Murphy commented to me: «You know, you never really think about it, but when you just lay it all out like that, it just seems crazy.»  Indeed so, Mr. Murphy.  Indeed so.

May this sordid piece of history be an indelible mark of shame upon the government of the state Kentucky.

Here is a recording of the interview:

666: THE HOLY TEMPLE

I have often wondered why the number 666 — a number associated with the Antichrist in Revelation — is linked to the rule of Solomon.  The link above goes to an article that has an interesting take on the issue.

My additional interpretive take:

6 — the number of mankind

66 — the number of human war

666 — the number of power over man

Within 2 generations of royalty within the ancient Israeli state, we go from a state of natural human law with the prophets (6), to a state of constant war with David (66), to a state of «peace» which is not peace — a state of tyrannical domination — with Solomon (666).

The coming of the 666 beast is associated with a new, global royal class.

When you see kings reemerge across the globe, as international organizations consolidate power, you can know that the end is near.

CONSTITUTIONAL WARRIOR CLASS

Members of the USA Military forces are thoroughly indoctrinated into the Law of War; a branch of international law which is the legal boundary of our military Rules of Engagement. Everyone, from the lowliest private to the loftiest general is repeatedly indoctrinated into this so that they fully understand it; in Initial Entry Training, through the commissioning sources, annually at home units, and as a required part of Mobilization training. A service member will receive training in the Law of War a MINIMUM of three times throughout a military contract. Most people will receive this training DOZENS of times throughout their military careers. The Law of War is based on the Geneva Convention Treaty, and is not a function of American Federal law.

With all of that having been said, it bears mentioning that every American soldier, whether enlisted or commissioned, must swear an oath to the Constitution of the United States in order to become inducted into military service; not the president, and not the government, and certainly not any international order, but to the Constitution of the United States.

How is it that US service members receive no, I say again, NO training on the US Constitution WHATSOEVER? Is it not ass backward that American soldiers are taught to serve an international treaty, while they are kept entirely in the dark about American law? Even US Military officers receive little to no training on the document that they have sworn to uphold, and are honor bound and responsible to protect. It is entirely possible to command a company of American soldiers without ever having read the US Constitution, yet you can believe that no one will reach that position without having become intimately familiar with the Geneva Convention, which is closely connected to the UN list of «Human Rights,» which, in reality, is a practical socialist manifesto, which outlines what governments are to provide for their people, and not what governments are limited from doing to an individual’s property and business.

The UN bill of «Human Rights» is antithetical to the US Constitution. Our service men are taught to uphold the former whilst ignoring the latter. This is outrageous.
