Bankster Drug Wars: Financial Elite Reap Billions on Addiction and Misery

Last year there were 23,000 homicides in Mexico, a level surpassed only by Syria. The record breaking homicide rate in Mexico is directly linked to large international banks. The illegal trade in heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, and marijuana wouldn’t be possible without the money laundering services of large banks. Every major bank in the US has served as an active financial partner with drug cartels. The banks include HSBC, Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Western Union, Citibank, and JP Morgan, in addition to overseas banks operating out of New York, Miami, Los Angeles, and London. Mexico’s Sinaloa drug cartel and Colombia’s Norte del Valle cartel laundered nearly 900 million through HSBC. The bank was slapped on the wrist and told to pay a $1.9 billion fine. Nobody went to prison. Banks, corporations, and governments have dealt drugs for centuries. The opium trade began in the early 1700s as an official monopoly of the British East India Company, which conquered India, and ran it on behalf of the British Crown and the financiers operating through the City of London. CIA involvement in the illicit drug trade is well documented. The CIA was created by Wall Street investment bankers to do their dirty work overseas and at home. Sociopaths have no aversion to murder, theft, torture, and social harm created by drug addiction. It’s simply another business model.

  1. Dennis ONeill says:

    Great piece on the institutional involvement in the narcotics trade by the U.S. federal government run by thugs in the corporate sector, including banking, that benefit financially from the drug trade. Two unmentioned facets of the U.S. government & banking sectors institutional support of the drug trade are the privatized prison system that is used to house low level drug dealers, and the asset forfeiture scam the government runs.

    • Nicholas Zakzuk says:

      The first dark secret is that the Pentagon High Command has been infiltrated and hijacked by the World’s largest Opium Cartel and manipulated into helping the CIA and the Mossad, using the DEA and US Customs as cover to become the World’s largest illegal drug traffickers. The second deep dark secret is that the Pentagon High Command assisted the Mossad’ “Israeli-first” Dual Citizens and the US Administration in their attack on America on 9/11.

  2. I think we need a good overview of jury nullification. People need to know more about this so when called to jury duty, nullify it. To put citizens in jail for things that these sociopathic criminals get away with needs to stop.

    I am having issues with the new format. I cannot get an entire video, or audio, to play without interruptions.

  4. B Mitster says:

    Does anyone know of the current status on Zapata v. HBSC? Tried a google search but came up with nothing other than docket information..

  5. I’m also having issues. Before I was able to watch the high version now it plays at low all the time. There should be a button to force high/low..

    • There should also be a button to download the video. Now it’s not that big of a problem.. You just have to press F12 and go to Network.. but in this situation I have to connect my phone with better bandwidth to get the link for HD version and go back to my slow cable connection and than download it..

  8. Phenomenal! I would love a way to download or purchase a copy of this video. Please keep up the great work, Newsbud.

  9. Shell is the market leader for sulphur. Sulphur is used to mask the scent of drugs, due to the irregular demand and ‘conspiratory’ nature of the parties involved, sulphur prices are highly volatile. Perhaps you could dig into the major (regular?) sulphur shipments to/from US drug mnufcturing regions and figure out if these cargos are adequately checked for the presence of cocaine.
