  • European Environmentalists Rekindling Cocaine Problem in Colombia and in the United States

    Not that many years ago, the South American nation of Colombia was on the cusp of becoming a failed “narco-state.” With climatic conditions ideal for the growing of coca plants, and with dense jungles providing natural cover for illegal operations, Colombia became an international hub for the manufacturing and export of cocaine. As demand for these drugs grew in the United States from the 1970s on, so too did the violence and corruption of powerful drug cartels as they expanded territory, and battled rivals and the government. By the 1990s, Colombia was regarded as one of the most dangerous places...

    Copy sent to Vatican criminal prosecutor for further investigationVATICAN CITY (ChurchMilitant.com) - A Vatican watchdog is claiming in a new book there has been homosexual abuse of underage seminarians at a Vatican-run minor seminary. Gianluigi Nuzzi, an Italian journalist who was a big part of the 2015 "VatiLeaks II" scandal, has released a new book titled Original Sin. He alleges there has been homosexual sex abuse in the Vatican's St. Pius X pre-seminary for middle and high schoolers, and includes a letter from a gay ex-seminarian who claims that his roommate, who was underage at the time, was being visited...
  • My Proposal for Systems of Legal Recreational Drugs

    I know this proposal will be met with strong opposition, but it is my firm belief that the 108-year old 'War on Drugs' needs to come to an end. It has turned into a decades-long war on millions of our young people. It would be replaced with FDA-supervised quality control systems for supplies of comparatively safe recreational drug forms, probably reducing the number of overdose deaths by over 98% (~50,000/year -> ~1,000/year). Manufacturers, distributors, retailers and customers would have to get DEA licenses. There would be three forms of customer DEA licenses: casual user, habitual cocaine user and habitual opiate...

The deputy took Hester to his office where he arrested her. A field test later determined that half a gram of white powder found in her purse was cocaine, according to WFTX. Hester has been...

    The Oregon legislature passed two bills Thursday decriminalizing small amounts of six hard drugs, including cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine and ecstasy. The first of the two bills now headed to the governors desk, HB 2355, decriminalizes possession of the drugs so long as the offender has neither a felony nor more than two prior drug convictions on record, according to the Lund Report. The second, HB 3078, reduces drug-related property crimes from felonies to misdemeanors. Republican State Sen. Jackie Winters claimed the war on drugs as it currently exists amounts to institutional racism due to how more frequently minorities are charged...

In 2002 she was convicted of the same crimes as Ethel and Julius Rosenberg and today she serves a 25-year sentence in Federal prison. Only a plea bargain spared her from sizzling in the electric chair like the Rosenbergs.Promptly upon Montes’ conviction a Cuban spy named Gustavo Machin, who worked under diplomatic cover in...

    Authorities arrested several soldiers at Fort Stewart on Tuesday. The soldiers are believed to have used, had or involved in the sale of cocaine.

James Rainey, senior commander of Fort Stewart-Hunter Army Airfield, said in a news release. An anonymous source at the base told Popular Military that sixty four soldiers from the 3-15 Infantry Battalion...

    An alleged refusal by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MAEDI) to allow the FBI's special attach for international relations to interview former President Barack Obama in French Polynesia is getting internet coverage but virtually no narrative in America's media. The U.S. Coast Guard cutter Joseph Napier interdicted the fishing vessel "Lady Michelle" in international waters near St. Vincent Island by zapping its electronic navigation system and rendering it "dead in the water." Four smugglers and contraband including approximately $125 million US dollars in seized cocaine were offloaded into American custody in San Juan, Puerto Rico as DEA and other...
