Nazis Were Fueled by Crystal Meth, New Book Shows……


Nazis Were Fueled by Crystal Meth, New Book Shows

The abominable actions of Adolf Hitler and his Nazi soldiers were fueled by meth, records show. A new book, Der Totale Rausch (The Total Rush), by German writer Norman Ohler, will profile the rampant drug use after years of researching both German and U.S. records. Ohler, whose research shocked him mostly because of Hitler’s drug use, said the drugs are what helped, “maintain his delusion until the end.”

Nazis took to Pervitin: a pill-like crystal meth. At first it was an over-the-counter drug sold in European pharmacies guaranteeing alertness. According to Ohler, one pill was enough to keep the Nazis awake for hours—and allowed them to hike almost 36 miles in a day—making Nazis think of it like coffee. Once the effects wore off Nazis were became short-tempered and angry. 

A 2005 Der Spiegel report explained how Pervitin made its way into the hands of German soldiers citing a military doctor’s experiment of it on 90 college students where the doctor said the pill would  “help win the war.” Not even six months later and millions of the drug were flown to the Nazis where they were handed out before invasions. Ohler said Pervitin was specifically used for Blitzkriegs like the invasion of Sudetenland, Poland, and France.

Hitler, who famously used heroin, doping agents, and other hard drugs, according to his physician Dr. Theodor Morrell’s notes, may or may have not used Pervitin. If he did, it would’ve made for a dangerous combination since long-term meth use can have neurological effects causing aggressive behavior and psychosis, while long-term heroin use effects decision-making and causes irrational behavior when stressed.

Mexican drug cartel tried to smuggle marijuana painted to look like fruit…..


..

A Mexican drug cartel recently used its painting skills to smuggle millions of dollars of marijuana into the United States, a brushstroke of genius of sorts until the effort was uncovered by a federal border agent.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents stopped a suspicious tractor trailer late Thursday on Interstate 19, south of Tucson, Ariz. Inside, the driver said, was a shipment of watermelons. But when agents inspected the shipment using X-ray imaging, they discovered the purported fruit was actually packages of marijuana painted to look like watermelons.

“These criminals use a lot of unique ways to try to conceal their narcotics,” Tucson CBP Agent Bryan Flowers said. “We’ve seen individuals use false compartments in the seats and gas tanks.  We’ve also found marijuana in tractor trailers here before.”

The truck had already crossed into the United States about 20 miles south, near Nogales. The trailer’s contents were discovered at a second mobile checkpoint close to Tucson.

Drug Enforcement Administration officials later took custody of the contraband and tractor trailer, estimating the value of the marijuana in the millions.

Flowers said this isn’t the first time the agency found marijuana disguised as fruit.

In April 2010, agents discovered 9,500 pounds hidden in a load of real watermelons. In June 2008 in Nogales a narcotics dog helped sniff out 5,000 pounds of pot valued at $8.3 million. DEA officials in Phoenix are still determining the street value and total weight of Thursday night’s haul.

The driver of the truck remains in custody, authorities said.

Anti-Gun Advocate…caught running guns, drugs, murder for hire group….


SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Gun-control groups said Thursday they were trying to find a new legislative leader to champion firearms restrictions after one of their most outspoken supporters was charged in a federal gun-trafficking case.

People on both sides of the gun control issue said the charges against state Sen. Leland Yee, D-San Francisco, may slow consideration of gun legislation this year.

“Ironically, while he’s being charged with gun trafficking, next to (U.S. Sen.) Dianne Feinstein he was probably the second most outspoken gun control advocate. This really leaves us scrambling for someone to pick up that mantle,” said Paul Song, executive chairman of Courage Campaign, a nonprofit advocacy group. “If it wasn’t so sad it would be comical. But what we’re really worried about is that this will further destroy the momentum for gun control here in California.”

Yee was arrested and later freed on bond Wednesday as federal authorities unsealed charges against 26 defendants, including Keith Jackson, Yee’s campaign aide.

Yee’s attorney, Paul DeMeester, has said Yee plans to plead not guilty. His legislative spokesman, Dan Lieberman, did not respond to a request for comment Thursday.

Jackson, a former San Francisco school board president, did not enter a plea Wednesday as the FBI accused him of being involved in a murder-for-hire scheme and trafficking guns and drugs. He was denied bail and is due back in court Monday.

Court documents allege that Yee sought campaign donations in exchange for introducing an undercover FBI agent to an arms trafficker. An FBI affidavit says Yee talked with the undercover agent about acquiring weapons worth $500,000 to $2.5 million, including shoulder-fired missiles, from a Muslim separatist group in the Philippines.

Organizers said the arrest of Yee particularly clouds the future of two of his gun control bills.

Yee’s SB47 would prohibit the use of so-called bullet buttons and other devices that allow for swift reloading of military-style assault weapons. His SB108 would require the state Department of Justice to study safe firearm storage methods. Both stalled in the Assembly last year.

“I feel very dismayed and upset,” said Amanda Wilcox, an advocate for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, whose daughter was a victim of gun violence.

But, “his actions don’t make what is good policy any less good policy,” she added.

Her husband, Nick Wilcox, said advocates are exploring other ways to move Yee’s bills forward. He said he can’t argue with opponents who view the alleged actions as the height of hypocrisy.

“If these allegations are true, Sen. Yee is easily the biggest hypocrite on gun control to walk the halls of the Capitol in Sacramento, if not the entire United States,” the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said on its website.

Sam Paredes, executive director of Gun Owners of California, said he was saddened by the damage done to the Legislature as a political and governmental institution. He said Yee’s arrest may give other advocates pause.

“Denying law-abiding citizens semi-automatic firearms … and then to funnel guns for illegal activity is the height of hypocrisy,” Paredes said. “There’s no other way to describe it, because it’s just (like) a movie script.”

Obama opens the borders….60,000 Border and Customs Agents Told to Take Furloughs…


Sixty-thousand federal employees responsible for securing the nation’s borders and facilitating trade will be furloughed for as many as 14 days starting next month because of $85 billion in cross-government spending cuts.

The federal government notified the workers on Thursday, CNN reports.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials said the furloughs and other austerity measures would cause delays at ports of entry, including international arrivals at airports, and would reduce the number of border patrol officers on duty at any one time, CNN reports.

The CIA and mind control experiments gone bad……



==========================================================
Talk about a bad trip. In the 1950s, the CIA launched a top-secret program called MKULTRA to look for drugs and other techniques to use in mind control. Over the next two decades, the agency used hallucinogens, sleep deprivation and electrical shock techniques in an effort to perfect brainwashing.
CIA scientists conducted more than 149 research projects as part of MKULTRA. In one, they tested the effects of LSD in social situations by slipping the drug to unwitting bar patrons in New York and San Francisco. In others, they enticed heroin addicts to take the hallucinogen by offering them heroin. [Trippy Tales: The History of 8 Hallucinogens]
Spooked by the Watergate scandal, in 1973 CIA Director Richard Helms ordered documents related to the project destroyed. However, some documents escaped destruction, and by 1977 a Freedom of Information Act request released more than 20,000 pages on the sordid program to author John Mark

Border Patrol agent killed, another wounded in Arizona…..


A U.S. Border Patrol agent was shot dead and another wounded while on patrol on Tuesday in a drug smuggling corridor in Arizona, near the border with Mexico, authorities said.
Sheriff’s deputies were called to the scene in Naco, southeast of Tucson, at 1:33 a.m. local time (4:33 a.m. EDT/0833 GMT) by the Border Patrol following reports that one of its agents had been shot, Cochise County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Carol Capas said.
Deputies found one dead agent and another with non-life-threatening injuries, Capas said.
“As they were walking up the trail, they reported taking gunfire,” Capas said. “We have unknown suspect or suspects at this point.”
FBI agents are investigating the shooting, authorities said. Officials did not identify the deceased agent, pending notification of the agent’s family.
Despite the construction of a tall, steel fence along the border with Mexico, the town of Naco remains a corridor for marijuana trafficking and human smuggling.
Capas said the agents were assigned to the Brian A. Terry Border Patrol Station, named last month after the agent whose murder in the line of duty was linked to a botched U.S. operation to track guns smuggled to Mexico.

Letters point to ‘Obama’s real father’….connection to Honolulu’s seedy past


…………………………………………………………….New research by Joel Gilbert into Communist Party member Frank Marshall Davis’ seedy history in Hawaii has bolstered the filmmaker’s theory that Davis was the biological father of Barack Obama.

Gilbert has uncovered handwritten letters by Davis that strongly suggest the acknowledged Obama mentor’s pornographic sex novel “Sex Rebel: Black” was based on Davis’ personal life.

Davis refers to the 1968 book as his “thoroughly erotic autobiography” in a letter to Margaret Burroughs, the well-known African-American artist, whose steamy affair with him, Davis explains, was included in the novel.

Burroughs, a former Chicago Park District commissioner, co-founded the DuSable Museum of African American History in 1961. The museum serves today as the current depository of an important collection of Davis letters and manuscripts.

New research by Gilbert has also established that the Davis residence at 2994 Kalihi Street in Honolulu had a seedy past in the sex trade, dating back to the early 1950s, when Davis first moved into the house.

WND has previously reported Gilbert argues in his full-length documentary “Dreams from My Real Father: A Story of Reds and Deception” that Davis, the radical poet and journalist who moved from Chicago to Hawaii in the 1940s, is the biological and ideological father of Barack Obama, not the Kenyan Barack Obama, who came from Africa in 1959 to attend the University of Hawaii.

As WND has also reported Gilbert believes 2994 Kalihi Street was the location where Davis took a series of nude photographs of a teenage Ann Dunham, the future mother of Barack Obama.

As documented by political scientist Paul Kengor’s book, “The Communist,” published in July, Davis was a card-carrying member of the Communist Party of the USA.
The Burroughs letters

Archivists at the DuSable identified for Gilbert two handwritten letters Davis wrote to Burroughs, one dated Nov. 1, 1968, and the other Oct. 27, 1982, seen in their entirety here, in both the handwritten originals and transcribed.

In the 1968 letter, Davis admits to Burroughs that he is the author of “Sex Rebel: Black,” published that year by Greenleaf Classics in San Diego under the pen name Bob Greene.

In the second paragraph of the 1968 letter, Davis explains to Burroughs not only that he is the author of the book, but that their sexual relationship in Chicago dating back to the 1940s was the basis for the fictional character Flo, introduced into the novel at page 109.

Davis wrote:

Incidentally, my thoroughly erotic autobiography appeared in July. It’s SEX REBEL: BLACK and was brought out by Greenleaf Classics in San Diego. Because it’s what some people call pornography, (I call it erotic realism) it may not be available at more conservative book stores. The author is ‘Bob Greene’ and in it you are ‘Flo.’ I have tried to be honest although I changed names and some descriptions, etc. You will find out things about me sexually you probably never suspected – but in this wider acceptance of sexual attitudes I can be far more frank than was possible 20 years ago.

If you get a chance to read SEX REBEL I hope you will be pleased with the portrait of yourself. You were and are a very unique and remarkable woman and for the first time you will learn of the confusion in my mind about you and Helen and what I really wanted but could not have because of the nature of our society. Today – or if attitudes had been different then – I would have handled it differently. The only fiction is in the last part of SEX REBEL where I am supposedly in California. And, incidentally, to keep the record straight, I’m still swinging and have quite a list of correspondents, some of whom I hope to see next year.
The Helen mentioned in the letter is a reference to Helen Canfield, a white Chicago socialite who was also a card-carrying member of the Communist Party of the USA.

When Davis and Canfield wed in 1946, Canfield was 23 years old, 18 years younger than Davis; Davis and Canfield divorced in 1970, and Canfield died in 1998.
Life-based pornography?

“This letter establishes clearly that the pornographic novel Davis wrote was autobiographical in nature and based on sexual relations and events that actually occurred in his life,” Gilbert told WND. “Without documentation like this, determining what is true and what is autobiographical fiction remains problematic.”

Gilbert has argued that the affair Davis describes in “Sex Rebel: Black” involving an underage girl named “Anne” is very suggestive of Stanley Ann Dunham.

In a compilation of Davis poems published in the book “Black Moods,” compiled by his biographer, University of Kansas English Professor John Edgar Tidwell, are 37 “portraits” grouped in a section subtitled “Horizontal Cameos.” Each poem is dedicated to a different woman identified by her first name only. The second of these is dedicated to “Anne,” reading as follows: Anne

In the gangling hours Thin, adolescent hours Before night runs softly Away into the west Anne rises wearily From her tired bed And sleeps Sitting in a chair.
“If ‘Flo’ was based on Margaret Burroughs,” Gilbert argues, “then I consider it very possible the character of ‘Anne’ is based on Ann Dunham.”

The 1982 letter confirms his propensity for underage sexual relationships. Then 76 years old, Davis provides details to Burroughs of a sexual relationship he was then having with an underage girl in Hawaii.

In the penultimate paragraph of the letter, Davis bragged to Burroughs about his affair:

“Currently my No. 1 woman here is a gorgeous and sexy girl with a face like Brooke Shields who became 17 two weeks ago today. But girls here develop early and rapidly. I have had my eye on her since I first saw her at 13. I knew she would be a mind blower. I didn’t see her again until March of this year and then things began. We had a real wild time for 6 ½ months despite her youth. It has now calmed down but we still maintain a ‘working’ relationship. This girl is Hawaii, Chinese, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish and Irish.”
Ann Dunham, born Nov. 29, 1942, was 18 years old when Barack Obama was born on Aug. 4, 1961.

Davis remained close to Burroughs

The 1982 letter Davis penned to Burroughs documents that Davis remained on close, friendly terms with her, decades after he moved from Chicago and their sexual relationship had ended.

In the 1982 letter, Davis acknowledges that Burroughs had asked him to send her some new poems, writing as follows:

“At last we have something again on which we can cooperate. Of course I’ll send 10 poems with the essential information by your deadline of Dec 30th. However experience has taught me to expect little in the area of royalties so I won’t expect much. But I do hope we will all be surprised.”
In his autobiography “Livin’ the Blues: Memoirs of a Black Journalist and Poet,” Davis discussed on Page 341 his continuing relationship with Burroughs.

Writing about a project to republish a collection of his poems for use in black studies programs at the college level, Davis recounted the following:

“The groundwork was laid in March of 1972 when an old friend, Dr. Margaret Goss Burroughs, curator of the DuSable Museum of African American History in Chicago and herself a talented writer and artist, visited Honolulu with her husband, Charles, and sister, Marion. I had known Margaret since 1940 when I was director of public relations for the first National Negro Exposition at the Chicago Coliseum. She asked if I would consider appearing in Chicago to read my poetry. This thought had never crossed my mind.”
Gilbert pointed out that even when his relationships with women began with a sexual relationship, Davis tended to keep friendships with these women and their families for decades after the sexual relationship ended.

In his documentary, Gilbert shows that Ann Dunham gave her father, the “Gramps” of Obama’s autobiography “Dreams From My Father,” instructions to make sure young Barry would be taken regularly to visit Davis. “Obama chronicles his childhood interaction with Davis in his autobiography by mentioning ‘Frank’ 25 times, the only person Obama refers to by using his real first name instead of a completely fabricated pseudonym” Gilbert stressed.

“In addition, the neighbors of Frank Marshall Davis have said Obama began visiting Davis every week regularly at his home on Kalihi Street from the time Obama was 10 years old. Why?” Gilbert asks. Gilbert, noting Dunham “engaged in nefarious activities with Davis, who was likely involved in pornography and prostitution,” asked “why would she bring 10 year-old Barry back from Indonesia and tell her father something to the effect of, ‘I’m going back to Indonesia, but please take young Barry to Frank’s house a few times a week.'”

“The only scenario where Obama’s regular visits as a child to Frank’s house makes sense is if Davis was the real biological father,” Gilbert asserts.

2994 Kalihi Street

In his many research trips to Hawaii, Gilbert has interviewed several retired Honolulu Police Department detectives who worked in Hawaii in the 1950 and 1960s, including a former assistant police chief.

He also gained access to photos from the Honolulu Police Department archives.

In the 1950s and 1960s, the 2994 Kalihi Street address was a four-story residence with a seedy past in the sex trade in Hawaii.

Gilbert believes Davis lived on the lower two floors, which had separate entrances and utility bills, while the Negro Elks Clubhouse was operated on the upper two floors.

As seen in Exhibit 2, Gilbert obtained a photograph from the Honolulu police archives that documents a vice raid conducted on the Negro Elks Clubhouse at 2994 Kahili Street, before Davis rented the house.

The HPD photograph shows black servicemen being led out of the Waikiki Lodge of the Negro Elks Clubhouse with a uniformed Navy MP with a camera and a flashlight in a joint HPD and military police vice raid conducted Dec. 20, 1952.

The Honolulu Advertiser reported at the time that the club was closed for being a “disorderly house” and for “selling liquor without a license.”

“The photo documents that the Kalihi Street address was notorious before Davis moved there,” Gilbert told WND.

“Davis fit right in,” he said. “He was a poet who used drugs, wrote about jazz music and lived a Bohemian life-style, starting various small businesses that all seemed to fail and struggling to make ends meet.”

Gilbert argued that 2994 Kalihi Street, a Tudor-style house built in the then-countryside, was a perfect residence for Davis to rent.

“In the 1950s and 1960s, Kalihi Street was in a valley that was not densely populated, deep in the Honolulu foothills, that had long been associated with vice, including drugs and the sex trade,” Gilbert said. “In the 1960s, the valley was considered a hangout for Beat Generation poets and then hippies, again associated with drugs and sex.”
