Police States, Fascism, Black Ops and Opium Production

Some interesting news stories you may, or may not have heard?

First off to Jolly Ol' England, which has to be the number 1 police state in the world, and not so jolly anymore. Well, not number 1 yet, but close, we'll get to that later.
This move gets them one step closer.

Government wants the military to run state schools

Yup, you read that right! Go ahead read some more, it only gets better.....

Alongside daily lessons, pupils would be expected to take part in activities such as drills, uniformed parades, weapons handling and adventure training.

What was that information on identifying fascism? Widespread militarism, despite other needs of the societies? Oh yes, 14 characteristics of Fascism.

Speaking of the burgeoning police state, no wait a minute, the now present police state in alleged "free nations". A report was done ranking the UK and the US numbers 5 and 6 respectively in the Police State Survey. Imagine that, the bringers of 'fweedum and demonocracy' to all, are obvious police states.

The report, read it !> The Electronic Police State,<>

“In an Electronic Police State, every surveillance camera recording, every email you send, every Internet site you surf, every post you make, every check you write, every credit card swipe, every cell phone ping … are all criminal evidence, and they are held in searchable databases, for a long, long time,” says the report.

“Whoever holds this evidence can make you look very, very bad whenever they care enough to do so. You can be prosecuted whenever they feel like it – the evidence is already in their database.”

To help out with all the moves towards the police state, particularly in the US, this bit of news is oh so interesting-

Pentagon’s Black Budget Grows to More Than $50 Billion

The Pentagon wants to spend just over $50 billion on classified programs next year, newly-released Defense Department budget documents reveal. “That’s the largest-ever sum,” according to Aviation Week’s Bill Sweetman, a longtime black-budget seer — a three percent increase over last year’s total.

It makes the Pentagon’s secret operations, including the intelligence budgets nested inside, “roughly equal in magnitude to the entire defense budgets of the UK, France or Japan,” Sweetman adds. All in all, about seven and a half percent of the Defense Department’s total spending is now classified.

Then this bit of news, also interesting, makes me think about military ops funded in unique and different ways they don't even show up in the budget. Where does money come from for covert activities?

One place money for covert activites could easily be sourced from, Afghanistan, fully occupied and yet....... the drug cash crop just gets bigger and bigger. Who benefits?

40-fold drug surge in Afghanistan: report

How is that possible? A 40 times, that is a 40 x increase in opium production while Afghanistan remains occupied by US and NATO troops???

Iranian police officials say drug production in Afghanistan has had a 40-fold increase since the US led invasion of the country in 2001.

Afghanistan's opium poppy crop is set to break all records this year, as grim reports by Iranian sources showed that drug production has reached a new height in the land-locked country.

That can't be a coincidence, I mean that just isn't possible?


  1. To be honest Pen, I expect it's more than a forty fold increase. Under the Taliban opium production was at 'zero'.

  2. It probably is more then 40 times.
    I guess there is no real way of knowing.

    Good thing the west is occupying and has control of that profitable, very profitable crop?

    Did you notice in the rankings of police state, Australia and Canada still hadn't made the top 10.

    Canada will move up next year with the new drivers licences, rfid tagged.

  3. Me no gots drivers licence, Whoo Hoo so me is safe.
