BIGGEST DRUG RAID IN HISTORY

Fool me 15 times, man, this is getting boring

Coast Guard Announces Biggest Maritime Seizure in History

The lamestream media told you:


A Coast Guard crew seized more than 13 tons of cocaine in what authorities called, "the largest cocaine seizure in maritime history," according to a report in Newsweek in 2017, citing a story from 2001. It was part of an article by Cato Institute EVP David Boaz, pointing out the folly of the failed drug war.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

This is not an article about the drug war -- which you may love, hate, support or want dead. This is a report about the so-called "news" you're getting. Not fake news -- stuff that's invented and false, made up by miscreants or our commie enemies (falsely called Russians to misplace blame).

This is about phony news -- what I've been writing about since 2006, http://www.gunlaws.com/PageNineIndex.htm -- what journalists use to deliberately mislead you and frame public debate to their twisted agenda.

Trump talks about fake news, a real problem, yes. When he's attacked for saying the media is an enemy of America, he's also right, but phony news is the bigger problem.

With AG Jeff Sessions on camera, the Coast Guard recently announced a new record for cocaine seizures at sea, 455,000 pounds, topping last year's record! Hooray for our side! The Coast Guard announced, in 2015, the biggest submarine drug bust, $181 million in cocaine! (No way to compare dollars to pounds, but reporters don't notice, or care.) Boaz goes on to cite the biggest drug bust ever in Brooklyn! Utah! New York! Outside of Florida! $20 million! $73 million! $2 billion! $4 billion! Looks like we're winning at last!

But of course, we're losing miserably. Phony news stories (not fake ones) hide that fact. Is it collusion, conspiracy, incompetence, part of the plan? Will reporters report on that? Fact: They don't. For every bust, many other shipments get through. How do we know? You can buy cocaine all over America, 24 hours a day, at low low sale prices. Some reporters, especially in Hollywood, enjoy the stuff. The farms keep growing, and like bananas, shipments of farm fresh produce keep arriving. A solitary shipment sometimes makes the "news."

This has been a drug report. Gun reports are the same. Same reporters, editors, producers, competence. Now you know it. They don't, even after reading Page Nine.
