More 9/11 “truth” news

February 1, 2011

Every time I think the 9/11 troofer business has died out, within a few months another crazy news story comes out which breathes new, paranoid life into it. This time we have two.

First of all, one of the “Loose Change” filmmakers has been arrested for selling heroin. Obviously this has set off some speculation that the arrest itself was yet another “inside job.” That makes sense though: The Bush Administration came to power and had 9/11 set up within 8 months, but it takes the Oneonta Police Department about six years to plant drugs on someone. And with crowds like this about to overthrow the US government, we need even more reasons to distrust 9/11 troofers now more than ever.

The full NYC Chapter of 9/11"Truth" meets with its Boston Chapter.

The other, much more awesomer thing to happen was when this lady tried to sue P Diddy for causing 9/11. It turns out that Valerie Turks lost income from the collapse of the World Trade Center. She is demanding $100 billion, which is probably about right. She also wants $900 billion in child support from him because – well at least this is what she claims – she dated Combs when he was a teenager and had one of his children, who is now 23.  She also wants a restraining order against him because she claims he’s been abusing her:

Valerie then goes on to say in her statement that is riddled with spelling and punctuation errors: “He date raped me 24 years ago and knocked me down him and Kim Porter and Wallace Wright, then Sean Combs and Kim and Wallace Wright came back 18 years later and raped and sexually abused my children and knocked my children down and crushed me and my children daily.

I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that maybe it wasn’t P Diddy crushing her daily, that maybe what was crushing her daily was her vague awareness of her own situation as a deranged person.

But don’t worry, P Diddy! You won’t have to pay this Turks’ $100 billion loss of income demand on your own. Because, as he surely knows, Combs plotted 9/11 with Rodney King. At least that’s what Turks is claiming.

Because like dude, it’s like the 20th day of the fourth month and shit.

Life imitates satire

February 25, 2010

Glamorama was this book by Brett Easton Ellis, who’s probably best known as the author of American Psycho. It’s a satirical novel about terrorists who use fashion models as patsies. This works well for the most part because celebrities and models can avoid standard security procedures, they’re immune from suspicion, and they’re usually too dumb to even really know what’s going on anyway. At least that’s how it’s framed in the book.


The only difference in this real life story is that instead of terrorism and international politics, this shady organization of models is interested in drugs. Here is a picture of the ringleader, Angie Sanselmente Valencia:

From the Telegraph:

Many of these women are believed to be other lingerie and glamour models who compete in international beauty pageants, whom Valencia describes as “unsuspicious, beautiful angels”.

Valencia is believed to be on the run in Mexico or Argentina. Apparently she became a leader in drug trafficking by splitting off from a group headed up by a gentleman who goes by the nickname The Monster.

Guinea Bissau

December 20, 2009

Guinea Bissau is a very poor country on the west coast of Africa. In 2005, a group of fishermen there found a package with some white powder. They didn’t know what it was, so they tried sprinkling some on their crops.

Then a few days later, a Colombian guy showed up in their town. He was all like, “I believe you gentlemen have something that belongs to me.”

So in exchange for their recovering and holding onto his product, the fishermen were given $1 million. A million dollars is a lot of money to pretty much anyone – at least anyone I know – but it’s even more in a country where the GDP is $486 per capita.

So the fishermen and their friends said to the Colombian, “Hey, we should hang again sometime.” And they did.

Now remember, that was in 2005. Since then, the military has gotten in on the drug trade and something like a civil war has started up between them and the government. Last March, the president was assassinated, probably as part of the toll for this war. Not to mention that there are now lots of native cocaine addicts where there previously were none, since they didn’t even know what it was. Now that half of the country’s GDP is in cocaine, the only work peasants can get is in that trade, and their salary is often in product.

But the thing is that Guinea Bissau isn’t a narco-state because it’s a big market for cocaine, and it’s not a narco-state because it’s a big producer. The producers are in Colombia and the market is largely in Europe. The only reason Guinea Bissau is involved is due to the drug prohibitions of countries around the world. It’s a hub for the traffickers, and they’re only able to take advantage of the local people is because they operate in the black market. So this situation is just one more of the hidden (and unnecessary) costs of the drug war.

What. The. Fuck.

If you have any drugs, take them all and watch this. If you don’t go get some, then take them and watch this:

Marilyn Monroe smoking a joint (?)

It looks like a cigarette, but she looks like it’s a joint. It could be a joint rolled by one of those joint-rolling machines, which incidentally are an abomination unto the Lord. Here’s the video, decide for yourself:

Marijuana decriminalization causes little to no change in Massachusetts schools

October 8, 2009

School officials in Massachusetts are saying that last year’s decriminalization of possession of an ounce or less of marijuana has had little effect on students. From the Metro West Daily News:

At Framingham High School, Principal Michael Welch said six kids in the past month have been found with marijuana or came to school high in three separate incidents.

I’m sure Principal Welch and the more conservative residents are currently clutching their pearl necklaces over the thought of SEPARATE INCIDENTS of STUDENTS coming to school HIGH  on MARIJUANA. And the rest of us are wondering how it could be that they only “caught” six over the period of a whole month. The students are apparently facing expulsion for this (!).

In case you were wondering, “What is this ‘marijuana,’ after all?” here is a picture:

MARIJUANA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

MARIJUANA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So I guess the basic lesson here is that decriminalization doesn’t mean that every kid will suddenly get high every day and get dreadlocks. There’s not much difference, which is exactly what drug prohibition reform advocates have been telling the “What about the children?” crowd all along.

Drug War Mules

September 13, 2009

This is actually about donkeys, not mules. If only these Colombian rebels had any consideration, they’d have made the joke go a lot smoother by using mules instead of donkeys. Then again, if that were the case then they probably wouldn’t have done what they did in the first place.

So some Colombian peasants northeast of Bogota were just making their way the only way they knew how (growing coca), but that was just a little bit more than the local psychotic Marxists would allow. The article doesn’t say they were FARC, but that’s probably the group to which they were referring. Anyway, long story short: whoever it was, they strapped explosives to two donkeys and blew them up via remote control, killing two humans working in the coca fields, as well as the donkeys.

But they didn’t die in vain. This story reminds us that drug prohibition can always get crazier and crazier, and it probably will continue to do so for a while.
