I have now been an expert on drug policy for over 20 years and what I’m
about to tell you is only understood by a very few fellow activists.
Most importantly what I am about to tell you will explain why Marijuana
continues to be illegal and how we can Re-Legalize Marijuana in 2009 by
focusing our efforts on the immediate implementation of the MERP Model
for Marijuana Re-Legalization. Please distribute this information far
and wide and read through the supporting documents at “MERP
This video attempts to answer the following questions:
(1) What does Marijuana Prohibition have to do with Globalization?
(2) Why Obama acts like he is dumb as a rock?
(3) Why You Can’t Trust the Moneyed Drug Reform Organizations
(4) Why MERP might really save the Planet
In order to destroy President Obama’s globalist plans for a Corporate
“One World Government” it is absolutely essential that Marijuana becomes
legal immediately under a model that does not tax or regulate the
personal cultivation of Marijuana by adults over the age of 18. That is
why I am asking that all of the 250 Global Marijuana protests, on May
2nd and May 9th 2009, endorse and force implementation of the MERP Model
for Marijuana Re-Legalization before 2009 ends.
I am not going to waste time explaining the details of the MERP Model as
I have already provided 3 videos to address this at the “MERP
Headquarters” sub web of the www.NewAgeCitizen.com website. Everything you
need to understand about the MERP Model is available, at MERP
Headquarters, in English as a video, and in 40 different languages in
(1) What does Marijuana Prohibition have to do with Globalization?
A recent 2009 UN Report admitted that the only thing sustaining the
global banking system is the infusion of illicit drug money from
terrorist organizations and drug cartels in countries such as Mexico and
Afghanistan. This implicitly means that the Global Banking System and
the Global Elite, including people like drug policy financier George
Soros and President Barack Obama, have a vested interest in the
continuance of drug prohibition: their profits and financial supporters
depend on it.
(2) Why Obama acts like he is dumb as a rock?
In March Obama insulted the intelligence of the American people by
saying that he didn’t think legalizing Marijuana was going to help “grow
the economy” and reiterated that he would do nothing to expedite the
legalization of Marijuana.
I predict that one day the phrase “dumb as a rock” will be replaced with
the phrase “dumb as Barrack.” That is because Re-Legalizing Marijuana
will immediately grow the economy. Barrack is dead wrong and cannot
possibly logically support his support for continuing the Prohibition of
I say this because legalizing Marijuana under the MERP Model will grow
the economy and will do so without the need to tax or regulate personal
cultivation. And here is how this would work.
First we pressure Obama and Congress to convene an emergency session of
Congress to implement the MERP Model by removing Marijuana from the
Controlled Substances Act and withdrawing from all UN Drug Treaties. If
Obama and Congress could rob us blind with the TARP Banksters bailout in
October, 2008, surely this should not take more than 2 weeks to
accomplish. Any Congressman that does not endorse these actions
immediately will be voted out of office in 2010: the next big federal
election. This will pave the way for the immediate Re-Legalization of
Marijuana and similar initiatives can be pursued throughout the planet
using a similar approach.
Once Marijuana is Re-Legalized under the MERP Model American citizens
can start to grow their own and the Mexican Drug and Immigrant Smugglers
will suffer a loss of 70% of their drug profits which currently come
from Marijuana sales. Within months the Mexican Drug Cartels will suffer
devastating revenue losses and will hopefully disappear from the face of
the earth. At the same time 27 Billion dollars in Marijuana revenue will
stay in the Untied States each successive year stimulating the US
economy without the imposition of taxes or regulation.
Isn’t this better than “dumb as a rock” Barrack’s plan to wage an
unnecessary war against the Mexican Drug Cartels? Don’t you feel
insulted, being treated like a stupid stepchild by your president? Of
course Obama is not really as dumb as a rock. He won’t Re-Legalize
because he is in the financial pockets of the Global Elite. Furthermore
his real reason to waste our “blood and treasure” on the Mexican Drug
Cartels is to expedite the southern integration of the North American
Union by “harmonizing” Mexican and US Military. And this could
eventually mean that a corrupt Mexican Military could end up enforcing
martial law against United States citizens on our very own soil. Is that
really something you want to allow “dumb as a rock” Barrack to get away
(3) Why You Can’t Trust the Moneyed Drug Reform Organizations.
Two of the most prominent drug reform organizations today are Rob
Kampia’s “Marijuana Policy Project” and Ethan Nadleman’s “Drug Policy
Alliance.” In point of fact most of the “moneyed drug reform
organizations,” throughout the planet, are largely funded by George
Soros who is only interested in a highly regulated and taxed model for
Marijuana reform: what I would call a “hard liquor” model. Such models
will not stop the Cartels, the Gangs, nor will such models stop the
arrest of nearly 900.000 American Citizens each year. And none of
Soros’s drug reform organizations will even consider the merits of the
MERP Model which would destroy the Cartels and stop the criminalization
of vast numbers of American citizens. I don’t believe that any of
Soros’s drug reform organizations are “honest brokers” of drug policy
and I urge that you don’t give another dime of support either
organization. They are sell-outs to true drug reform.
(4) Why MERP might really save the Planet
Of course anyone that is conversant with Marijuana reform knows of Jack
Herer, author of the groundbreaking book on Marijuana reform, “The
Emperor Wears No Clothes.” I first met Jack in 1989 at the Hash Bash in
Ann Arbor. In succeeding years I always used to kid with him about his
assertion that Hemp could save the planet. His argument was that hemp
could replace most petrochemical products with much safer and
sustainable Cannabis substitutes – and there is certainly much truth to
My argument is that the immediate Re-Legalization of Marijuana under a
“no tax, no regulate” model, such as MERP, would save the planet by
pulling the economic rug out from under the global elite that continues
to profit from illegal drugs, petrochemicals, genetically modified food control and
war. And interestingly George Soros, the major backer of moneyed drug
reform groups, such as DPA and MPP, has major investments in the war
mongering Halliburton and the Carlyle Group, as well as Monsanto. Halliburton
and the Carlyle Group have both profited
and promoted unnecessary wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Monsanto is
attempting to control the world’s food supply through the use of
genetically modified plants that bare no heirloom seed. And this, to me,
is the ultimate crime against nature, going well beyond the issue of
Re-Legalization. Soros is also in favor of a open borders, global
corporatism, gun control and highly taxed and regulated Marijuana. Soros
is not an honest broker of the drug reform most people want to see and
neither are the groups that he supports.
So it all comes down to this. Do you want to continue to support Soros’s
“moneyed drug reform organizations” that will never go further than a
“hard liquor” model where you will pay through the nose for highly taxed
and regulated Marijuana. Or do you want to begin to support a “beer and
wine” model, such as MERP, where you will be able to grow your Cannabis
for free and never have to worry about drug cartels invading your
neighborhoods or drug enforcement agents invading your homes.
I hate to inform you. But we are at the very same place we were before
the First American Revolution and there is no time left. You must
immediately decide whether you are going to remain free or become
indentured slaves of the “New World Order” which both Soros and Obama
are attempting to foist upon us. That is why neither Soros nor Obama
will support true Marijuana Re-Legalization. It is getting in the way of
their plans to enslave us. The MERP Model is just one plank of the “New
Agenda for America” which might also be called the ultimate
“Anti-Globalist” agenda. Please visit my website, www.newagecitizen.com,
often to see how you can help change the course of human civilization,
beginning with the Re-Legalization of Marijuana under the MERP Model.
And Re-Legalization, under MERP, is only the first step in our
transition to a more peaceful and sustainable world where national
sovereignty and individual freedom are both preserved and enhanced. And
frankly isn’t this the change you wanted in the first place?
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A bloody war between Mexican drug cartels is no
longer solely a south-of-the-border problem, members of Congress said
Tuesday at a hearing on the issue.
A member of the Mexican Federal Police patrols in Ciudad Juarez during a
recent operation to fight drugs.
The violence accompanying those battles has crept into the United
States, and is believed to largely be fueled by money and guns pouring
over the border from America, said Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois.
"The drugs are coming north, and we're sending money and guns south,"
said Durbin, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and
Drugs. "As a result, these cartels have gained extraordinary power."
About 90 percent of guns seized in Mexican raids are traced back to the
United States, according to the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco,
Firearms and Explosives, he said. About 2,000 firearms cross the border
into Mexico daily, according to the Brookings Institution, he added.
The subcommittee held a joint hearing Tuesday on the issue with the
Senate Caucus on International Narcotics Control. The hearing focused on
ways the United States can assist Mexican President Felipe Calderon's
efforts to combat drugs and violence.
In addition, American communities are seeing an increase in violent
crimes related to the Mexican drug trade. In Phoenix, Arizona, in 2008,
366 kidnappings for ransom were reported -- more than in any other U.S.
city, Durbin said, citing federal statistics. The vast majority of
those, he said, were related to Mexican drug cartels.
"We're not winning the battle," Arizona Attorney General Terry
Goddard told lawmakers. "The violence that we see in Mexico is fueled 65
to 70 percent by the trade in one drug: marijuana."

believe the cartels have reached into 230 American cities, up from 50 in
2006, Durbin said. In his home state of Illinois, far from the Mexican
border, he said, cartels are believed to be operating in three cities:
Chicago, East St. Louis and Joliet.
Lawmakers and witnesses at the hearing universally applauded Calderon's
efforts to deal with drug violence through actions such as sending
troops into Ciudad Juarez. "I think he needs every single bit of our
support," said Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-California.
However, the violence has skyrocketed, Goddard said, with a new and
appalling trend: assassinations of police officers, prosecutors and
other officials who are combating cartels.
Perhaps even more horrifying, as the violence increases, so does the
possibility that innocent citizens will be caught in it, he said. In at
least one instance in Phoenix, criminals making a home invasion had the
wrong house, he said.
"The casual fallout is going to be significant if we can't do something
to try to assist Mexico in stopping it south of the border," Goddard
Efforts by Arizona authorities to fight the violence include
intercepting wire transfer payments to smugglers of drugs and of human
beings, Goddard said. Between 2003 and 2007, he said, Arizona seized
about $17 million in such transfers.
However, a more comprehensive and regional effort is needed, he said, as
the cartels, faced with increasing law enforcement surveillance in one
area, will simply take their crimes somewhere else.
And authorities must target the masterminds and leaders behind the
violence, he said: "Just arresting and deporting foot soldiers is a
waste of critical assets."

(CNSNews.com) - The violence caused by drug cartels along the
U.S.-Mexico border might not be as serious a national security concern
as the war in Afghanistan, but it is a threat that calls for adequate
resources, personnel, and perhaps military force, lawmakers said last
More than 6,000 people were killed last year in drug cartel-provoked
violence, and in January 2009, another 1,000 were killed, according to
the U.S. State Department. Some of that violence is spilling over into
U.S. cities along the border with Mexico. On Feb. 25, more than 700
drug-cartel members operating in the United States were arrested.
Concerning the violence and national security options to protect
Americans, Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchinson (R-Texas) said that the U.S.
government is working with the Mexican government to combat the drug
As for sending in U.S. troops to secure the border, she said: “I think
the issue of military on the border has to be looked at very carefully.
I’m not ruling it out, but I’m not ruling it in either – nor has Mexico
asked for that.”
Hutchinson and other lawmakers spoke with CNSNews.com on March 11, day
three of the 19th Annual Legislative Conference of the U.S. Hispanic
Chamber of Commerce, held in Washington, D.C.
Hutchison noted that Mexico has not asked the U.S. military for
assistance, and lawmakers say that as long as that is the case, American
forces should not be assigned to carry out objectives that Mexico can
handle on its own.
“They’re not going to ask for it – they have capabilities themselves,”
Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) told CNSNews.com. “We need to respect each
But the U.S. should ensure that border security agencies have the
resources and personnel necessary to protect the border, Rep. Mike Pence
(R-Ind.) told CNSNews.com.
“A nation without borders is not a nation, as Ronald Regan said,” noted
Pence. “We need to make sure our security personnel have the resources –
including aircraft – that they need to maintain border integrity and
advance our border integrity.”
During a hearing of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Homeland
Security on March 10 – while the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce event was
occurring – Rep. John Culberson (R-Texas) referred to the U.S.-Mexican
border violence as an “undeclared war” that warranted “a true,
fast-action military force that can move up and down that border on the
At the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce event, lawmakers told CNSNews.com
that they agreed the United States is in an undeclared war but that the
war is with the Mexican drug cartels, not with Mexico itself.
“It’s not an undeclared war with Mexico, it’s an undeclared war against
drug dealers and drug lords,” said Hatch. “Mexico has as great an
interest – in fact, even greater – than ours in ending that type of
dominance down there.
“It’s important for us to realize our friends to the south in Mexico are
important to us and we’re important to them,” he said. “We ought to be
able to work together to stamp out this kind of criminal activity.”
Rep. Jerry Lewis (R-Calif.) also said at the March 10 hearing that the
U.S.-Mexico border violence is a greater national security concern than
the war in Afghanistan. On Wednesday, legislators told CNSNews.com that
while both issues are significant security threats, it is difficult to
“They’re both security threats,” Afghanistan and the Mexican border, “so
I’m not prepared to weigh them one against the other,” Sen. Joe
Lieberman (D-Conn.) told CNSNews.com
“I think that might be somewhat of an exaggeration,” Sen. Mary Landrieu
(D-La.) said in response to Lewis’s claim. “But that’s not to
underestimate the significance of the dangers associated with that kind
“I’m not sure there are any easy solutions, but I’m confident that there
are solutions with the right kind of leadership and resources,” she
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) referred to the drug trafficking threat as
“an existential threat to the government of Mexico.”
Both McCain and Lieberman said the Homeland Security committee in the
Senate will be holding additional meetings on border security in the
coming weeks, both in Washington, D.C., and in Phoenix, Ariz.
Last month, CNSNews.com cited a Government Accountability Office report
that said the Department of Homeland Security had built only 32 miles of
double-layer fencing along the U.S.-Mexico border out of the 700 miles
originally mandated by an act of Congress in 2006.
In December, the U.S. Justice Department reported that Mexican drug
cartels had become the greatest organized crime threat to the United
States, saying drug-trafficking operations are functioning in more than
230 cities across the United States.
The global financial crisis is partly caused by
economic crime. Last week, at the eighteenth session of the Commission
on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice,
UNODC Executive Director
Antonio Maria Costa said that "bankers have allowed the world's criminal
economy to become part of the global economy." He added that "the
financial crisis is providing an extraordinary opportunity for even
greater mafia penetration of cash-strapped financial houses: with the
banking crisis choking lending, these cash-rich criminal groups have
emerged as one of the few sources of credit."
In keeping with the public mood for tighter regulation, international
treaties like the United Nations Convention against Corruption and the
United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime can help
States to fight fraud, financial crime, corruption and money-laundering
while rebuilding trust in the financial system. UNODC, together with the
World Bank, can also help poor countries recover stolen assets through
the Stolen Asset Recovery (StAR) initiative, which fosters cooperation
between developing and developed countries and between the public and
private sectors, to repatriate looted assets and eliminate safe havens
for dirty money.
Everything is connected, including crime
Economic fraud goes hand-in-hand with identity-related crime. The spread
of information and communication technologies has compounded the
problem. States are increasingly concerned about the potential for
offenders to obtain vast amounts of information by hacking computers and
by committing other forms of cybercrime, which has become a billion
dollar business and is increasing exponentially with more than 1 billion
Internet users in the world today. Identity-related crime is also linked
to other activities involving organized crime, terrorism, corruption and
money-laundering. Identity-related abuses can be used to evade detection
and prosecution and to prevent the tracing and forfeiture of proceeds of
For many countries, identity-related crime as an offence is still a new
concept so more needs to be done at the national level to strengthen
legislation and close the loopholes exploited by criminals. "ID-crimes
must be recognized as stand-alone offences, as we do for cybercrimes,"
said Mr. Costa. What is required is prevention, prosecution and
protection to assist victims of such crimes. Developing countries need
assistance to monitor threats, identify criminal activities and disrupt
suspicious transactions. At the global level, a common approach to the
criminalization of identity-related offences will facilitate cooperation
in law enforcement and the sharing of information on crime trends.
Cooperation between the public and private sectors is also vital for
understanding the various dimensions of the problem and for taking
effective measures against the phenomenon.
