The crazy real-life drug smuggler
behind ‘American Made’

New York Post, by Michael Kaplan

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 10/4/2017 2:14:46 PM

If you happened to be traveling along a swampy, mosquito-infested route between Baton Rouge and Lafayette, La., back in the freewheeling 1980s, you may have witnessed an unusual occurrence: a half-dozen or so military duffle bags, each stuffed with 110 pounds of pure cocaine, plummeting from the sky. The man behind the drop was Barry Seal, who pushed them through a secret hatch in the floor of his airplane, installed there for precisely this purpose. One of the drug world’s most daring and ingenious smugglers, Seal was an action junkie who flew low and used Gulf of Mexico oil platforms to

No, the article skips over and discounts the Nicarauguan operation where he was flying in no serial number M16s assembled from parts made in a bunch of small machine shops in Arkansas and southern Missouri from Mena to support the Contra anticommunist guerillas. I am certain that the op was run with the full knowlege of George Bush, Sr.

Read Terry Reed´s book, Compromised for more of the Barry Seal puzzle. And Seal used the air dropping of duffle bags trick to deliver huge quantities of cash to BillyJeff via Web Hubbell´s father.

Did you ever think it was odd that Bush, Sr. and BillyJeff were such good buddies after they were out of office, even though they were ostensibly political enemies? Uniparty, indeed. Bush´s team, run by Ollie North, ran the guns to Nicaragua, and apparently BillyJeff, then governor of Arkansas where the Mena operation took place, got tons of money and plenty of coke in return to keep quiet and use the state resources to cover for the op.

FTA: "His finances became so robust that, as depicted in “American Made,” a bank in Mena, Ark., turned an entire vault over to Seal"

One wonders how much of that loot found its way into governor and Mrs. Clinton´s campaign coffers.

“He bragged to other pilots about having earned millions,” “American Made” screenwriter Gary Spinelli told The Post. “I don’t think he helped himself by rubbing people’s noses in it.”

If my memory serves me correctly, two young boys were murdered after seeing one of the drops in Mena. They had to be silenced. This was one of the first murders connected to the Clintons.

Also note that the coke kingpin of Little Rock was a close friend of BillyJeff, and was convicted of drug crimes.

Then pardoned by BillyJeff. Dan Lasater.

Whole lot of stink in Arkansas in the days of BillyJeff and Hillary.

Trump offers support to GOP
senators in Bannon’s cross hairs
The Hill [DC], by Josh Dawsey & Burgess Everett    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 10/20/2017 5:10:37     Post Reply
President Donald Trump called three Republican senators this week and expressed support for their 2018 re-election bids, aligning with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in the senator´s intra-party feud with Steve Bannon. Trump dialed GOP Sens. John Barrasso of Wyoming, Deb Fischer of Nebraska and Roger Wicker of Mississippi, according to five people familiar with the calls. He promised to help the three senators against any insurgent challengers, one of these people said, and said he hoped they would be reelected. The calls are expected to eventually be followed by formal endorsements, GOP senators said. Wicker, Barrasso and Fischer declined

Sally Quinn, the well-known Washington journalist, has published a new memoir called Finding Magic. Even for those of us who have followed her nearly 50-year career with unflagging interest, it is full of news. Ingeniously, Quinn has outfitted the book with a literary device guaranteed to discourage bad reviews. Her fellow scribblers can only kick themselves for not thinking of it first. Quinn begins with a loving portrait of her childhood in Georgia, where the family servants schooled her in voodoo. Her mother was already initiated. When the local vet misdiagnosed the family dachshund, Quinn tells us, Mom lost her temper

For fark’s sake. The guy’s accused of rape, by more than one woman. What sort of behavior does she think “invited” that? Even his somewhat less egregious offenses are inexplicable in terms of an invitation. Does anyone think Lauren Sivan put out the vibe upon meeting famous Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein that she was hoping to watch him furtively whack it into a potted plant in a dark corner of an empty restaurant kitchen? The more aggressive harassment is, the harder it is to explain in terms of a misconstrued female “invitation.” Actual assault is plainly indefensible, yet here’s Eddie

Let the Russian-crimes whistleblower testify

A key informant in the Russian bribery and extortion scheme to gain control of US atomic resources wants to tell Congress what he knows — but is legally barred from doing so. That’s the latest bombshell to emerge from The Hill’s exposés this week that the Obama administration knew all about the scheme yet still OK’d a deal to give Moscow control of one-fifth of US uranium. Moreover, the unidentified informant tried to tell his story by filing a lawsuit during last year’s campaign — but was squelched by the Obama Justice Department. According to his lawyer, Reagan-era Justice official Victoria Toensing,

UC Santa Cruz College Republicans meeting
disrupted by leftist protesters, three arrested
Fox News, by Caleb Parke    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 10/20/2017 4:48:50     Post Reply
Leftist protesters interrupted a College Republicans meeting Sunday night in the library at the University of California, Santa Cruz, calling members “fascists,” “racists” and “white supremacists” during a lengthy demonstration that ended in three arrests. Though the College Republicans initially offered to speak to the protesters, those demonstrating refused to leave and demanded instead the Republicans end their meeting. One person in attendance, a Democrat, stood up, however, and defended his right-leaning fellow students. “I immediately stood up and confronted them,” Phil Leonard told Fox News. “I was the only one to stand up and confront them.” The school’s director

All the Other Harvey Weinsteins

The tale of Harvey Weinstein is now a thread that has tangled its way through Hollywood, connecting women, mostly actresses, in a depressingly common way. We all seem to have a Harvey story, each one a little different but with essentially the same nauseating pattern and theme. Women were bullied, cajoled, manipulated, and worse, and then punished. My Harvey story is different, mostly because of timing. I was in one of the first films that Weinstein produced. I accepted a supporting role in a small movie based on “Loser Takes All,” the short novel by Graham Greene. I was twenty years

Do we care what happened in Niger?

It is Day 15. That is, a full two weeks since an attack in Niger on a joint patrol of U.S. and Nigerian troops killed four Green Berets and injured two others — the first time U.S. troops have been killed as part of our counterterrorism mission there, where we have about 800 troops. And it was only on Day 13 that senators demanded more information about the attack. On Tuesday, the Senate Armed Services Committee said the Trump administration had not been forthcoming enough. Committee Chairman John McCain even said, “I had a better working relationship, as far as information back

Last month in the Pearl City community on Oahu, Safeway customer Arlene Sua watched as a man suddenly grabbed eight cases of Spam and head for the door. She thought “‘Okay, this isn’t real. No, he’s not going to take it, no, no,” she told KHON TV. But it was real. The man took off with the Spam and disappeared. Elsewhere on the Island at about the same time, three women loaded up shopping carts at a Long’s drugstore with 18 cases of — you guessed it — Spam. They made a rush for the exit. Fortunately, an alert customer, Kurt Fevella,

Protests of the national anthem aren’t just happening in the NFL— Tampa Bay Lightning forward J.T. Brown raised his fist in the air during The Star Spangled Banner earlier this month, and also before a pre-season game in September against the Panthers. Brown was of course following in Colin Kaepernick’s footsteps, protesting police brutality and racial injustice in America. The move caught the attention of Tampa interim police Chief Brian Dugan, who invited Brown to the academy last week. To his surprise, Brown took him up on the offer only a few days later.

Opioid drugs have killed more Americans than the 19-year Vietnam war, the AIDS crisis, car accidents, suicides and homicides, a new report shows. The analysis by independent research group Police Executive Research Forum (PERF) lays bare the scale of the epidemic by analyzing the latest CDC figures. It breaks down the death tolls of the most devastating events in US history in the last 50 years, to show why addiction is the most deadly issue the country has ever faced. While the Vietnam war claimed 58,200 lives in 19 years and six months, opioids killed 64,070 Americans in 2016 alone. Experts warn last year´s

A In her latest reinvention, Hillary Clinton has emerged from the woods transformed into a self-styled Cassandra. She travels from sound stage to sound stage, reminding the public that her 2016 loss was not her fault and the Russians who undid her once-promising political career are coming again. This newest reboot is remarkable if only for its extraordinary immodesty. Few have done so much to undermine the fortunes of their ostensible allies, but Hillary Clinton is not done yet. Her vendetta has now led her to sabotage the so-called “Resistance’s” last, best hope for cutting the legs out from under the

She didn’t name names, but when Monica Lewinsky joined the viral online campaign against sexual harassment Sunday by retweeting #MeToo, the first person who came to mind was President Bill Clinton. Therein lies the problem for the Clintons with the Harvey Weinstein sexual-harassment scandal: It hits perilously close to home. Not only was Mr. Weinstein a political ally and a major donor to the Clintons and the Clinton Foundation, but his alleged sexual misconduct has refocused attention on Mr. Clinton’s own checkered past as the tide turns against powerful men who take advantage of women. “The question is on everyone’s lips: how

Former President George W. Bush offered an unmistakable denunciation of Trumpism Thursday without mentioning the president by name, urging citizens to oppose threats to American democracy. “Bigotry seems emboldened. Our politics seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication,” Bush warned in remarks at the Bush Institute’s Spirit of Liberty event in New York. By chance, Bush was standing in the same spot at the Time Warner Center where former President Barack Obama made a similar plea for democracy and American leadership in late September, shortly after President Donald Trump had finished a belligerent, isolationist speech to the United Nations

Former President George W. Bush said Thursday that “bigotry seems emboldened” in the United States, warning that Americans need to reject “white supremacy.” The former president also criticized the “governing class,” but did not specifically mention President Trump, Congress or any other politicians in office. “Discontent deepened and sharpened partisan conflicts” in recent years, Bush said in remarks from New York City at a forum focused on security and sponsored by the George W. Bush Institute.

George W. Bush hinted Thursday at his dissatisfaction with Donald Trump, complaining in a New York City speech that ´bullying and prejudice´ has become a caustic norm in American public life. At an event hosted by the George W. Bush Institute, the 43rd U.S. president rattled off a thinly veiled litany of complaints about the current commander-in-chief, focusing on both his tone and his isolationist policy choices. ´Our young people need positive role models,´ he said. ´Bullying and prejudice in our public life sets a national tone, provides permission for cruelty and bigotry, and compromises the moral education of children.´

A Massachusetts elementary school has canceled its Halloween events and is celebrating ´black and orange spirit day´ instead. Boyden Elementary School´s principal sent a letter to parents this week saying that it had decided to cancel its traditional Halloween parade on October 31 because it was ´not inclusive of all students´ and was ´difficult´ for many. Without specifying which students the parade excluded, Principal Brendan Dearborn said the school would instead hold a ´black and orange spirit day´.  Children are allowed to dress in those colors but cannot come to school in costume.

Former President George W. Bush emerged from retirement on Thursday to stage a broad attack on President Donald Trump and the movement that supports him. Without mentioning Trump by name, Bush accused him of “casual cruelty” in political discourse, of distorting nationalism into “nativism,” and of emboldening bigotry and white supremacy. He called for a renewed commitment to American global leadership and domestic citizenship. It was a call to national unity — against Trump and his supporters, who were reduced to labels and caricatures: “protectionism,” “isolationist sentiments,” and the like. “Too often, we judge other groups by their worst examples

The two most recent presidents on Thursday blasted the state of US politics in events that were separated by less than 20 miles. First, it was former President George W. Bush. The most recent former Republican president lambasted a political culture that caused "bigotry" to seem "emboldened." The public comments were Bush´s most pointed since President Donald Trump took office in January. "In recent decades, public confidence in our institutions has declined," the 43rd president said at an event in New York hosted by his namesake institute.
