Watermelon seeds,

are good sources of magnesium vital for normal heart functioning, maintenance of normal blood pressure, supporting metabolic process and protein synthesis. It is also beneficial in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases and hypertension besides controlling blood pressure and diabetes.Roasted watermelon seeds are served as a snack or used to garnish salads. In Nigeria they are used in certain soups. Watermelon seed oil is extracted from these seeds which is beneficial for your hair and skin. To say the least, watermelon seeds are edible and can be a healthy option.

watermelon seeds

are a rich source of nutrients and minerals and therefore, should not be discarded. These seeds have a hard outer covering so they should be chewed before swallowing to get their nutritional content. Some of the health benefits of watermelon seeds are given below. http

Watermelon seed tea is considered to be a natural diuretic helpful for kidney cleansing.

Watermelon

Food historians believe that African slaves helped introduce the watermelon, now the most consumed melon in the US. The fruit eventually became a major symbol in the iconography of racism in the United States through the “watermelon stereotype”. In various images, the fruit was used to paint African Americans as a simple-minded people who were happy when provided watermelon and a little rest.

Watermelon seeds can be baked with salt for a protein-rich and tasty snack, which has a similar flavor and consistency to pumpkin seeds, or prepared in a tea to maximize its diuretic effects.

How To Make Watermelon Seed Tea

Ingredients

  • 30-40 watermelon seeds, fresh or dried
  • water

Instructions

  1. Crush 4 tablespoons of fresh watermelon seeds using a mortar and pestle, or grind them up in a food processor.
  2. Cook for 10 minutes in two litres of water over high heat.
  3. Drink the entire two litres of tea over a period of two days for full effect.

This tea is especially good for those with digestive issues, or those who are prone to urinary tract infections. So instead of opting for seedless watermelons – which are less flavourful than watermelons with seeds and are part of a relatively new strain of watermelon mass-produced for consumers – or spitting out the seeds and throwing them away, the next time you eat watermelon, consider saving the seeds to roast or brew in a tea. Your body will ultimately thank you for providing it with such a nutritious snack or beverage.Watermelon-eathealthylivefit_com

Section 62.169 (b) of the Los Angeles Municipal Code

Occupants Residential Parkway Landscaping

Native Plant Program (RPLNPP) in the city of Los Angeles

Considering that a curbside is an underutilized strip of land between the sidewalk and the street, the regulations were a point of contention in lower-income neighborhoods, which often lack green space and access to fresh, healthy foods.

However, urban farmers have reason to cheer. The L.A. City Council has voted to allow Angelenos to plant fruits and vegetables in their parkways – that strip of city-owned land between the sidewalk and the street – without a permit. Fruit trees, however, will still require a permit.

LA City Council approves curbside planting of fruits and vegetables L.A. New City Ordinance: 183474, Sec .62.169. (b): In accordance with Section 62.169 (b) of the Los Angeles Municipal Code, “No permit is required by the owner of property fronting the parkway portion of the street in an area zoned for residential use in order for the owner to remove existing shrubs and plants and replace the shrubs and plants with landscaping, including edible plant materials…”

owners or occupants of residentially zoned properties may install shrub and ground cover plant materials within parkways fronting their properties without the need to obtain a permit, while still being held responsible for maintenance.

Even the green spaces, gardens and lawns we create are too often populated entirely with plants that are not native to the area and require great effort, dangerous pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and lots of water to maintain. If one person, who was going to “clean up” a wooded area, stream bank or fence row or convert a meadow into a lawn, recognizes some wild flower there due to this site and decides to leave it alone then this effort will have been worthwhile.

‘No Bugs, More Food?’ Parent Finds GMO Propaganda In Common Core Science Book

We are in a food emergency. Speculation and diversion of food to biofuel has contributed to an uncontrolled price rise, adding more to the billion already denied their right to food. Industrial agriculture is pushing species to extinction through the use of toxic chemicals that kill our bees and butterflies, our earthworms and soil organisms that create soil fertility. Plant and animal varieties are disappearing as monocultures displace biodiversity. Industrial, globalized agriculture is responsible for 40 percent of greenhouse gases, which then destabilize agriculture by causing climate chaos, creating new threats to food security.

But the biggest threat we face is the control of seed and food moving out of the hands of farmers and communities and into a few corporate hands. Monopoly control of cottonseed and the introduction of genetically engineered Bt cotton has already given rise to an epidemic of farmers’ suicides in India. A quarter-million farmers have taken their lives because of debt induced by the high costs of nonrenewable seed, which spins billions of dollars of royalty for firms like Monsanto.

NATIVE PLANTS

  • Cast seeds of native species to the earth and to the winds once in a while – as a way of giving something back. Consider adopting a little patch that you are particularly fond of.
  • When you are out and about, never leave any litter behind.

    1401361390_strips-of-colored-wood_ipadStratification (botany)

     In the wild, seed dormancy is usually overcome by the seed spending time in the ground through a winter period and having its hard seed coat softened up by frost and weathering action. By doing so the seed is undergoing a natural form of “stratification” or pretreatment. This cold moist period triggers the seed’s embryo, its growth and subsequent expansion eventually break through the softened seed coat in its search for sun and nutrients.

    Ecology and habitat

    Much of the collective wisdom about  healing plants was lost with the devastation of the native tribes.

    Seeds are the beginnings of a new plant, with the sole purpose of reproducing.They lie dormant until they receive the things they need to grow, such as adequate soil, water and sunlight. This process is called germination. All seeds are different and require different conditions to germinate and grow properly. Despite being different, most seeds have three main parts in common; the seed coat, endosperm and embryo.

    Native plants provide suitable habitat for native species of butterflies, birds, pollinators, and other wildlife. They provide more variety in gardens by offering myriad alternatives to the often planted introduced species, cultivars, and invasive species. The indigenous plants have co-evolved with animals, fungi and microbes, to form a complex network of relationships. They are the foundation of their native habitats and ecosystems, or natural communities.[3]

    Such gardens often benefit from the plants being evolved and habituated to the local climate, pests and herbivores, and soil conditions, and so may require fewer to no soil amendments, irrigation, pesticides, and herbicides for a beautiful, lower maintenance, and more sustainable landscape.1401361390_strips-of-colored-wood_ipad

Native America’s Pharmacy on the Prairie

For thousands of years, the native people of North America sustained life and health with plants found all around them. Getting to know this ecosystem is the first step in preserving plants that can offer beautiful benefits to our health.

For countless generations, Native Americans have used the plants around them for food and medicine. It has been reported that the various tribes on this continent used more than 1,000 species of plants for food alone. With good reason: The native plants are nutritious, rich in vitamins and minerals, and many are excellent sources of protein.

Native people weren’t just sitting around their lodges, holding their sick stomachs, nursing terrible headaches and waiting for a drug store to finally open in their neighborhoods. They needed look no farther than the surrounding prairie and woodlands for help in healing the pain, wounds and infections that are an inevitable part of being human.

Home School Club Native Plant Program Seed projects for kids
the Native American has thousands, and the white man but some hundreds, of years of practical experience with those plants that are indigenous to this continent is a fact that must be considered of some importance. As Virgil J, Vogel puts it in American Indian Medicine: “The mere fact that a plant is not listed in the Dispensatory, or the Pharmacopeia, or the Formulary, does not necessarily signify that the plant is without medical value.

The California Native Plant Society promotes the inclusion of native plants in every school garden. Native plants help students learn the vital connection between plants and higher forms of life. Plants are at the bottom of the food chain, and native plants are a primary component of healthy ecosystems. Just as edible plants are important for human health and survival, native plants are equally necessary to other forms of life. Native plants help pollinator populations survive and thrive, which in turn help pollinate edible crops.

Some ideas for incorporating native plants in school gardens:

  • Pollinator Garden
  • Butterfly Garden
  • Bird-friendly Garden
  • Hummingbird Garden
  • Ethnobotanical Garden
  • Habitat Garden

Fireweed: fireweed represents the promise that beauty will return after bodily sickness or environmental destruction.  When woodlands are damaged from fire, or clear-cutting, it is fireweed that brings the first promise of recovery.  It reminds us that nature has her healing cycle too, one initiated by this lush, fiery medicine springing up in abundance.

fireweed11360

Identifying fireweed The most distinctive thing about fireweed is its gorgeous pink to purple colored flowers, which grow in a spike shape in sunny pockets all over the Northwest.  Flowers have four petals, and resemble the flowers of other evening primrose plant relatives.  They will occasionally create secondary branches of flowers – especially when grazed by deer or other foragers.

Making Tea – Use one small handful of leaves per cup of boiled water and steep about 15 minutes.  Drink up to three cups a day.  The tea has a pleasant mild taste and can be mixed with other herbs for flavor.

-ConstituentsA peculiar volatile oil – oil of Erechtites – transparent and yellow, obtained by distilling the plant with water, taste bitter and burning, odour foetid, slightly aromatic, somewhat resembling oil of Erigeron, but not soluble as that is in an equal volume of alcohol. The specific gravity of the oil is variously given as 0.927 and 0.838-0.855, and its rotation 1 to 2. According to Bielstein and Wiegand, it consists almost wholly of terpenes boiling between 175 and 310 degrees F.

Medicinal Action and UsesAstringent, alterative, tonic, cathartic, emetic. Much used among the aborigines of North America in various forms of eczema, muco-sanguineous diarrhoea, and haemorrhages, also for relaxed throat and sore throat, and in the United States Eclectic Dispensatory in the form of oil and as an infusion, both herb and oil being beneficial for piles and dysentery. For its anti-spasmodic properties, it has been found useful for colic, spasms and hiccough. Applied externally, it gives great relief in the pains of gout, rheumatism and sciatica.

Dosage(Internally) 5 to 10 drops on sugar, in capsules or in emulsion.

The homoeopathic tincture is made from the whole fresh flowering plant. It is chopped, pounded to a pulp and weighed. Then two parts by weight of alcohol are taken, the pulp mixed thoroughly with one-sixth part of it and the rest of the alcohol added. After having stirred the whole, it is poured into a well-stoppered bottle and allowed to stand for eight days in a dark, cool place.

The resulting tincture has a clear, beautiful, reddish-orange colour by transmitted light; a sourish odour, resembling that of claret, a taste at first sourish, then astringent and bitter, and an acid reaction.

Uses

The young shoots were often collected in the spring by Native American people and mixed with other greens. As the plant matures the leaves become tough and somewhat bitter. The southeast Native Americans use the stems in this stage. They are peeled and eaten raw. When properly prepared soon after picking they are a good source of vitamin C and pro-vitamin A. The Dena’ina add fireweed to their dogs’ food. Fireweed is also a medicine of the Upper Inlet Dena’ina, who treat pus-filled boils or cuts by placing a piece of the raw stem on the afflicted area. This is said to draw the pus out of the cut or boil and prevents a cut with pus in it from healing over too quickly.

The capsule breaks open lengthwise to release seeds, each with a hairy plume.

The root can be roasted after scraping off the outside, but often tastes bitter. To mitigate this, the root is collected before the plant flowers and the brown thread in the middle removed.

In Alaska, candies, syrups, jellies, and even ice cream are made from fireweed. Monofloral honey made primarily from fireweed nectar has a distinctive, spiced flavor.

In Russia, its leaves were traditionally used as a tea, before the introduction of tea from China starting in the 17th Century, it was greatly valued and was exported in large quantites to Western Europe as Koporye Tea (Копорский чай), Russian Tea or Ivan Chai.[8] Fireweed leaves can undergo fermentation, much like real tea. Today, koporye tea or Ivan Chai is still commonly sold and consumed in Russia, though it is not nearly as popular as it was in Pre-Soviet Russia.

Fireweed’s natural variation in ploidy has prompted its use in scientific studies of polyploidy’s possible effects on adaptive potential[9] and species diversification.[10]

Habitat restoration

Because fireweed can colonize disturbed sites, even following an old oil spill, it is often used to reestablish vegetation. It grows in (and is native to) a variety of temperate to arctic ecosystems.

Nono-GMO Medicinal Plants ~ Food for Thought

dandelion] [dock] [fiddlehead] [fireweed] [foxtail barley] [goldenrod] [grains] [hemp nettle]

Sweet Flag (Calamus) ~ Acorus calamus

The Cree of northern Alberta use it for a number of medicinal reasons including as an analgesic for the relief of toothache or headache, for oral hygiene to cleanse and disinfect the teeth, and to relieve the effects of exhaustion or fatigue.

  Yarrow ~ Achilllea millefolium

Yarrow’s medicinal use is ancient.

The pioneers considered yarrow-tea a good remedy for “malaria”, a designation freely used in those times to describe various fevers, and when taken very hot it is a good treatment for this affliction. Potter deemed it a diaphoretic stimulant tonic used in infusion to treat colds and commencement of fever. It contains potassium and is deemed a sedative.

Nettle is a most useful and beneficial plant. Flagellation with nettles was a method of treatment formerly employed in paralysis and to produce local irritation, which must have been very effective. Cree Indians used the plant as a treatment for rheumatism by walking bare-legged ~ bared as much as the individual dared ~ through the living plants and by rubbing them on affected parts of the body, with the caution not to scratch but to let the sting wear off naturally. Strangely, the juice from its leaves will heal the nettle‘s sting.

Medicinally, in herbal practice, nettle tea was used in the treatment of neuralgia and asthma, to expel worms, and as a blood purifier ~ as John Gay said in 1732, “Elder’s early bud with nettle’s tender shoots, [will] cleanse the blood.” Inhaling the smoke from the dried leaves was also said to relieve asthma and bronchitis.

 Saskatoon ~ Amelanchier florida (alnifolia)

Misaskwatomin

The shrub was widely used. The strong, pliable wood was much sought for arrow-making, and the beautiful white flowers, among the first of spring, were seen as a symbol of that season and of the rejuvenating earth, and were used in religious ceremonies.


Government of BC
Alder ~ Alnus tenuifolia
The alders are closely related to the birches.

‘Because of its hardness, some Interior aboriginal people used mountain alder wood for making bows and snowshoes. Because it doesn’t flavour the food, they also used it for smoking and drying salmon and meat. Like red alder, it was a source of dye and a substance for tanning hides. The Carrier made fish nets out of mountain alder and dyed them black by boiling them in their own juice. Fish cannot see the black nets.

Pearly Everlasting ~ Anaphalis margaritacea
The everlastings, as the name suggests, will remain fresh-looking for months when used in floral wreaths. The pearly everlasting may be the most beautiful.
It often shares habitat with yarrow and somewhat resembles it with its broad clusters of small pearly-white flowers topping a long stem on which run lance-shaped leaves.
According to Vogel, the Flambeau tribe spread pulverized flowers of pearly everlasting over live coals to aid a patient stricken by paralysis.

After the eugenics movement was well established

in the United States, it spread to Germany.

The Rockefeller Foundation helped develop and fund various German eugenics programs,[73] including the one that Josef Mengele worked in before he went to Auschwitz.[6][74]

Upon returning from Germany in 1934, where more than 5,000 people per month were being forcibly sterilized, the California eugenics leader C. M. Goethe bragged to a colleague:

“You will be interested to know that your work has played a powerful part in shaping the opinions of the group of intellectuals who are behind Hitler in this epoch-making program. Everywhere I sensed that their opinions have been tremendously stimulated by American thought . . . I want you, my dear friend, to carry this thought with you for the rest of your life, that you have really jolted into action a great government of 60 million people.”[75]

Canaan

 [key-nuh n]
 noun
1.the ancient region lying between the Jordan, the Dead Sea, and the Mediterranean: the land promised by God to Abraham. Gen. 12:5–10.

2.Biblical name of Palestine.

3.any land of promise.

4.a descendant of Ham, the son of Noah. Gen. 10.

Philo of Alexandria, a 1st-century BC Jewish philosopher, said that Ham and Canaan were equally guilty, if not of whatever had been done to Noah, then of other crimes, “for the two of them together had acted foolishly and wrongly and committed other sins.” Rabbi Eleazar decided that Canaan had in fact been the first to see Noah, and had then gone and told his father, who then told his brothers in the street; this, said Eleazar, “did not take to mind the commandment to honour one’s father.” Another interpretation was that Noah’s “youngest son” could not be Ham, who was the middle son: “for this reason they say that this youngest son was in fact Canaan.”[32]

Genesis 9:25: Cursed (ארור) is Canaan: Noah said to Ham: “You caused me that I should not father a fourth son, another one to serve me. May your fourth son [Canaan was Ham’s fourth son, see Genesis 10:6] be cursed by serving the offspring of these greater ones [of Shem and Japheth]… What did Ham see that he emasculated him? He said to his brothers Adam the first man had only two sons (Cain and Abel) yet one killed the other because of the inheritance of the world [Cain killed Abel over a dispute how to divide the world between them according to Genesis Rabbah 22:7] and our father has three sons yet he seeks still a fourth son.”[26][27]

Genesis 9:26: …Blessed is יהוה the God of Shem: “Who is destined to keep His promise to [Shem’s] offspring to give them the Land of Canaanand he shall be: “Canaan shall be to them as a servant to pay tribute.”[27][28]

Genesis 9:27: and Canaan shall be a slave to them.: “Even after the children of Shem will be exiled slaves will be sold to them from the Children of Canaan.” [Rashi explaining why the curse is repeated.][26][27]

Early Judaism and Islam

Noah curses Ham by Gustave Dore

While Genesis 9 never says that Ham was black, he became associated with black skin, through folk etymology deriving his name from a similar, but actually unconnected, word meaning “dark” or “brown”.[38] The next stage are certain fables according to ancient Jewish traditions. According to one legend preserved in the Babylonian

Talmud, God cursed Ham because he broke a prohibition on sex aboard the ark and “was smitten in his skin”;[39] according to another, Noah cursed him because he castrated his father.[40] Although the Talmud refers only to Ham, the version brought in a midrash goes on further to say “Ham, that Cush came from him” in reference to the blackness,[41] that the curse did not apply to all of Ham but only to his eldest son Cush, Cush being a sub-Saharan African.[42] Thus, two distinct traditions existed, one explaining dark skin as the result of a curse on Ham, the other explaining slavery by the separate curse on Canaan.[43]

The concepts were introduced into Islam during the Arab expansion of the 7th century, due to cross-pollination of Jewish and Christian parables and theology into Islam, called “Isra’iliyyat“.

In 1956, E. Raymond Hall, former director of the Kansas Biological Survey and the KU Museum of Natural History, obtained a personal check from John D. Rockefeller to acquire the 160 acres now known as the Rockefeller Tract. At the edge of this area lies a small 10-acre remnant of original native prairie with a rich diversity of more than 200 native plants—including two endangered species, the western prairie fringed orchid and Mead’s milkweed. This is one of only four locations in the world where both species occur together.

Today less than 0.5% of Douglas County’s original 300,000 acres of tallgrass prairie remains. This makes the long-term protection of the Rockefeller Native Prairie vitally important in preserving our local natural heritage. It is a reminder of what an original prairie looks like, but it also provides a valuable seed bank of rare prairie plants and, together with other portions of the Rockefeller Tract, is highly useful in studies of prairie ecology, restoration and management.

The King of the Prison Experiments was one Dr. Austin Stough. He had initiated contracts with the nation’s largest pharmaceutical manufacturers to carry out drug testing at a number of prisons in three southern states, Alabama, Arkansas and Oklahoma.

Each of the major drug firms in the United States has at least one director with close Rockefeller connections, or with a Rothschild bank. Another director of Merck is John K. McKinley, chief operating officer of Texaco; he is also a director of Manufacturers Hanover Bank, which Congressional records identify as a major Rothschild bank.

Despite the dramatic implications of the drug testing stories, they met with thunderous silence from the “bleeding hearts” of the nation’s media, perhaps because publicity about these programs might have raised conjecture as to why German doctors had been executed for the same practices.

The history of the pharmaceutical drug business has always been a chronicle of fraud, of preying on the fears of the uneducated and the gullible and taking advantage of the universal fears of the illness and death.

describing the prisoners as “human guinea pigs.” The journalist quoted one convict, who was deliberately burned on both arms, “The pain was pretty bad,” and mentioned other prisoners who had been injected with live cancer cells.

Saturday Evening Post, March 2, 1963, was titled “Convict Volunteers.”

Despite the fact that this story, written about inmates at the Ohio State Prison in Columbus, mentioned that these convicts did not receive any pay for submitting to these experiments (Ohio statutes piously forbid such payments, saving the drug companies even more money), the writer ends his article with a glowing tribute to the program, pointing out that it caused “the volunteers to feel self-respect.”


The third story, in Business Week, June 27, 1964, noted that the drug companies were able to save many millions of dollars by using the prisoners for drug experiments.


Tranquilizers continue to be big business. Roche Labs (Hoffman LaRoche) continues to push its No. 1 seller, Valium, while promoting its other sellers, Librium, Limbitrol, Marplan, Noludar, Tractan, Clonpin and Dalmane. Roche also produces Matulane, which is used in cancer therapy. This drug causes leukopenia, anemia, and thrompenia, with side effects of nausea, vomiting, stomatitis, dysphagia, diarrhea, pain, chills, fever, sweating, drowsiness, tachycardia, bleeding and leukemia.

Another firm offering “proven” drugs is Smith, Kline Beck-man, which made its initial millions from peddling the drug known as “speed” through prescriptions from doctors, the notorious Dexedrine and Dexamil. Executives of Smith, Kline Beckman have pled guilty to 34 charges of covering up 36 deaths and cases of severe kidney damage in patients using their drug Selocrin, which was finally removed from the market.

The Wall Street Journal, January 15, 1988, noted that a number of suits have been filed against schools by anxious parents concerning the forced use of Ritalin. The Georgia Board of Medical Examiners is now looking into the skyrocketing use of Ritalin in the schools in Atlanta’s affluent suburbs. A student now on trial for murder has entered the defense that he was on Ritalin.


Pesticides persist in being even more dangerous than insects. Lindane, (Gammelin 20), produced by Hooker Chemical, a Rockefeller connected firm, causes dizziness, brain disease, convulsions, muscle spasms, and leukemia. For years, the FDA waged a battle against Shell Oil’s pesticide strips, which contain lindane.

Dr. Roy T. Hansberry, executive of Shell Chemical, which subsidized Shell Development, served on the special Agricultural Department seven member task force to study pesticide registration procedures.

Shell had registered 250 pesticide products.

DDT, as we have noted, long after its ban in the United States, continues to find a ready market overseas, much to the profit of Monsanto, its producer.

Individual products, such as the current furore over aspartame, may come under Congressional scrutiny, but the overall operations of the Drug Trust remain immune from Congressional investigation.

Drug War-The Medical Monopoly’s weak link is that it is almost totally dependent on doctors and hospital personnel to promote its profitable items.

What is the present magnitude of the CIA world drug operation?

Lt. Col. Bo Gritz, who has thirty years of distinguished service with the United States Army Special Forces, testified before the House Foreign Affairs Committee International Narcotic Task Force that 900 tons of heroin and opium would enter the free world in 1987, the source being Southeast Asia and the Golden Triangle. Col. Gritz had been to Asia a number of times to confer with one of Asia’s largest drug producers, Khun Sa. Khun Sa then laid the blame for the world drug operation squarely at the door of some well known CIA operatives, including Theodore Shackley, who served as chief of station for the CIA in Laos from 1965 to 1975.

Khun Sa stated that Shackley had worked closely with Mao Se Hung, who was then the leading drug smuggler in Southeast Asia. Another colleague of Shackley was a “civilian” named Santos Trafficante. Trafficante had long been a leading figure in the Mafia, and had been called before Congress to testify about a possible attempt on the life of Castro in Cuba. When the Communist regime took over, the Mafia lost an empire of gambling and prostitution in Havana and other cities. They sought revenge.

Another prominent personality identified by Khun Sa and others as active in the drug trade was Richard Armitage, whose drug operations began during the Vietnam War. He later moved to the U.S. Embassy in Bangkok. From 1975 to 1979, according to witnesses, he used his embassy position to carry on drug operations.

He then left that post, establishing the Far East Trading Corporation in Bangkok. Armitage was later appointed by President Reagan as Assistant Secretary of Defense in charge of International Security Affairs, reporting directly to the Secretary of Defense, Casper Weinberger. Business tycoon Ross Perot then learned of Armitage’s history. He went to the White House, demanding that Armitage be fired. He talked to George Bush, former head of the CIA, who gave him the brush-off by sending him to FBI Director William Webster (shortly afterwards, Webster was quietly appointed head of the CIA).

Webster refused to act on Perot’s complaints, which opened the door for his appointment to the CIA post. Meanwhile, Weinberger, fearful that the role of the Defense Department in the drug scandal was about to unfold, hastily resigned. He was succeeded by Frank Carlucci, who was then serving as National Security Advisor, and who was well versed in the entire operation.

Carlucci personally ordered Perot to drop his crusade against Armitage. Because Perot’s fortune had been built on huge government contracts, he had no choice but to back off. Other personages involved were General Richard Secord, who surfaced as a figure in the Iran-Contra affair, who had boasted of flying plane loads of gold to Southeast Asia to pay off the drug smugglers.

The daytime soap opera known as the Iran-Contra affair was made to order for the secretive operatives of the CIA. They delighted in leading the obtuse members of Congress on one wild goose chase after another, while the real story remained untold. It was chef’s surprise, a culinary delight of drugs, the sale of arms to belligerents, and money, well seasoned with political sauce, stirred with various commitments to the State of Israel by leading Washington politicians, and topped with luscious Swiss bank accounts.

In fact, the Iran Contra affair was the logical culmination of the longtime involvement of the Rockefeller interests and the Drug Trust in pro-Communist activity. John D. Rockefeller himself had tucked the sum of $10,000 in cash into Leon Trotsky’s pocket before seeing him off to start the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia.

During the 1950s, it quietly placed its members in power in the media, the universities and the government, replacing, in most instances, the incumbent Stalinist hardliners. The Stalinists in Washington who had surrounded Roosevelt and Truman were gradually replaced with “neoconservatives,” that is, hard-line anti-Moscow ideologues, who later added to their masquerade by additional and impressive noms de plume, such as “the Hard Right,” “the New Right,” “the Religious Right,” or, in some instances, merely as “conservatives.”

None other than the Hollywood man on the white horse, Ronald Reagan, rode into power in 1980 on a tide of “neoconservatism.” His principal backing came from the CIA, which by then was only a mouthpiece for the neoconservatives, and its house organ, the National Review, whose editor, William Buckley, boasted that the only job he had ever had was with the CIA.

Jeane Kirkpatrick, of the Rockefeller financed League for Industrial Democracy, became the spokesman for the new policy, while Reagan’s entire team was dominated by the Hoover Institution, whose two senior fellows, Sydney Hook and Seymour Martin Lipset, were on the board of LID. Thus David Rockefeller maintained close liaison with the Stalinist Communists in Moscow, while other Rockefeller interests directed the “anti-Communist” stance of the Reagan regime.

The power of the LID lay in its domination of the CIA and its total commitment to the State of Israel as the world headquarters of the Trotskyite Communist movement. Thus Elliott Abrams, son-in-law of the Israeli propagandist Norman Podhoretz, who was editor of the American Jewish Committee organ, Commentary, was appointed by Reagan to direct the Contra operation in Nicaragua, a classic standoff between the Stalinist regime in Managua and Trotskyite directed rebels in the hills.

The drug involvement in this operation should surprise no one, because the Rockefeller interests, having established the American Drug Trust, had long been active not only in ethical drugs but in unethical ones as well. The contra affair not only threatened to blow the lid off the Iran Connection; it endangered the Israeli Connection, the Swiss Connection, and the Rockefeller Connection as well.

Thus a “crusade against Communism,” a noble effort to contain the Communists a la George Kennan, to be financed with “dirty” money from the sale of drugs, was at last revealed to be the same old crew of CIA agents peddling their drugs and laundering their money in various parts of the world. (The present writer is now researching a book which will document all of these operations.)<
