Daniel Kovalik on Morgan Freeman and the Plot to Scapegoat Russia

Daniel Kovalik is author of the recently-released book The Plot to Scapegoat Russia: How the CIA and the Deep State Have Conspired to Vilify Russia. He teaches International Human Rights at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law. He has worked on Alien Tort Claims Act cases against The Coca-Cola Company and Occidental Petroleum – cases arising out of egregious human rights abuses in Colombia.

    It has become obvious that the CIA was a corporate tool of the US but has evolved into its own corporate power structure with its majority shares of stock self owned.

    The CIA, with its access to military aircraft and personnel, its history of needing to self fund highly profitable in nature for operations illegal and political in nature, and some just profitable – after all, it is a business that must pull its own weight.

    If I were to guess I would guess that the tax dollars spent on the drug war are at the best used to eliminate the competition.

    From coke to crack and predators needing to heel and from Purdue winding down its operations on all those poor junkies they created in the ’90’s, now being deprived of their only way to feel human as the government reverses itself, deciding opiates have become an epidemic – and just after they had broken that stigma of the heroin junkie by making it legal and putting it in little pills. All they talk about are the overdoses. i can promise you one thing, while some of this may be speculation, these people who have been using for two years or more are suicides, not overdoses. Dopamine is the brain’s natural chemical that gives a person their reason to live – to protest. Opiate addicts do not seek their drugs to get high once they have become addicted – they only crave to be human. To feel normal.

    Take Afghanistan for instance; Only an educated guess but I assume the Taliban ban in 2001 on growing poppies was their own ban on religious and/or moral grounds…even though i am sure there have been absurd claims that it came from pressure by the US government resulting in 43 million in aid to compensate for the loss (for someone) of a multi-billion dollar heroin operation – not to mention the billions in damage to the bombed out country plus hundreds of thousands (?) killed – all likely an act of CIA corporate business dealings. I mean just how do you deal with a country that has no interest in material gain and only wants to be left alone – plowing billions underground as fertilizer for the next crop of wheat?

    War is good for business. The Afghan opium economy feeds into a lucrative trade in narcotics and money laundering.
    Any idea that there is any evidence of a desire to stop the 15 year growth of opium production might be move believable if the Mother of all Bombs was dropped on a poppy field last year instead of a parking lot.
    It is interesting that the huge drop in opium production in 2000 coincided with the big push of Oxycodone, chemically devised to produce the same high as heroin – yet claimed to be non-addictive – during that same time. The fact is it could not have been created in any better way than to create addicts, high tolerance, and high prices (900.00/bottle at the drug store – medicaid approved). Purdue, who had held the patent and produced the extended release tablets of morphine ER had been using a silicone base for 20 years – making them tamper proof (so they could not be injected). This was time honored technology which made the medication time release over 12 hours but was also tamper resistant. The new Oxycontin ER, both 40 and 80mg, offers no more pain relief than morphine but it offers a hell of a high … just like the conversion of opium to heroin. And then the dual purpose of changing the time honored ER patent from silicone to wax was just brilliant. Of course all the demand was for these pills. Nearly everyone who purchased them was reselling them to drug addicts who prefered to inject their drugs. The wax not only provided a new ten year patent for Purdue, it became very simple to inject. Put in spoon, add water, heat, and with one push of the back end of the syringe the drug was released, pushing the wax to the side. This patent was held on this drug just for this reason. While competitors wanted in on this legal heroin market they were not allowed to use the wax – because it was a new patent of its own. They had to use silicone and junkies were not interested. Purdue got another 5 years out of their patent that way.
    Once Purdue was obligated to return their portion of the heroin market back to the “those involved’ they changed back to silicone, the standard in time release pills, and the street price dropped by 75% where heroin could be purchased.
    Now we have this feigned opiate epidemic and overdoses. I say feigned because the epidemic was perpetuated on the public, told it was non-addictive, killed no more pain than morphine, but due to careful chemistry is loaded huge amounts of dopamine to the brain. This natural drug is the drug of life. Life would be devolving to single celled organisms if not for this chemical that pushes us forwards and rewards us for washing the dishes to the discovery of black holes.
    The receptors in the brain and bowel that accept this natural chemical are very small because it takes very little to produce the euphoria needed to motivate us forward. As is the bodies adaptive way these receptors get larger and more numerous in amount so the huge amounts forced by the medication can be accepted by the brain. After just a couple months regular use there is the run away effect of the same problem repeating itself. The receptors increase and more drugs are needed.
    Then, when the drug is withdrawn, the natural amounts of dopamine are again produced – yet the multiple receptors cannot recognize the proportionally small amounts of dopamine. The addict suffers a total loss of love of life – and this is after 10 days to 100 of physical withdrawal – which almost anyone will put up with to be rid of this curse of life. Yet, depending upon how long the addiction has been going on, millions from a decade of easy access to Oxycontin, the extra receptors may never go away.
    This is where all those overdoses, or most of them, come from. Relapse after relapse come from no change from day to night, work and the weekend. The only survival impulse left is to get normal – just to feel human again.
    My guess is that now the DEA is now cutting peoples doses, closing pain clinics, while heroin production rises, we will see heroin in every small town within just a couple of years.

    There is a predator species on this planet that is not compatible with humans. They are the psychopathic elites. The whole operation; from the lack of opium production coinciding with the creation and heavy push of the new formula Oxycontin, through ten years of addicting people, and now the “opiate epidemic” flush with the huge rise in opiate production. Drugs, sex workers, and slaves, are the final resources of a raped and ravaged country.
    This operation has the tell tale signs of corporate think tank all over it. Shifting profits and a divided non functioning voter. The odds of so many profitable “good” things coming from something so terrible is just too unlikely.

  • The propaganda isn’t working, hire an actor.

  • Thanks for posting the interview.

    Most of the regulars here would not be not surprised – Morgan Freeman is just the latest example where propaganda has being used on the masses – one that was extremely easy to expose – the trouble is getting in between the MSM watching crowd and convince them that this has been happening on a regular basis.

    They’ve even legalized it !!!

    How the NDAA Allows US Gov to Use Propaganda Against Americans [Occupycorporatism]

    The US government has unbound the legal regulations against using propaganda against foreign audiences and American citizens. The intention is to sway public opinion by using television, radio, newspapers, and social media targeting the American and foreign people in controlled psy-ops.

    The newest version of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) has an amendment added that negates the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948 (SMA) and the Foreign Relations Authorization Act of 1987.

    MSM Fake News: How Washington Post Sexed-up its ‘Facebook Russian Bot’ Conspiracy [21 Century]

    Then there was Udo Ulfcotte, the German editor of the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, at least he owned up about what he done,[posting stories written by the CIA]

    The question becomes how many more editors haven’t owned up.

    Another way to look at this, pretty much the entire Western press takes their cue from the US MSM, the implications are obvious.
