US Government Controls and Manages Global Crime Networks and Uses Profits to Fund Black Budget

Johnny Depp was recently in a movie called “Black Mass”.  In this film, Depp plays a real life character named “Whitey Bulger”.  Whitey Bulger was one of the biggest crime bosses on the East coast of the United States.  The film describes HOW Mr. Bulger was allowed to flourish in his criminal activities and developed into the infamous Boston crime boss.

How did this crime lord maneuver his organization to become as successful as he was?  He took on a business partner who was even better than he at criminal activity.

Whitey Bulger was given criminal immunity and protection against prosecution by the United States government.  Our government partnered up with him.  A deal was made.  In exchange for the privilege of being given free reign to commit every crime imaginable-including murders and extensive drug trafficking; all Mr. Bulger had to do was to provide damaging information about the criminal activities of his rival crime organizations-namely the Italian mafias.  As Mr. Bulger provided inside information regarding his “competitors”, the FBI would bust them and Mr. Bulger’s organization would take over their criminal “territories” and claim their profits.

This deal made the FBI look like they were really successful in reducing criminal activity and “cleaning up” the area.  In reality the FBI was just consolidating criminal power into one “chosen” organization.  The U.S. government was neutralizing the competition and funneling business into Whitey Bulger’s organization and due to this support was effectively consolidating and controlling the organized crime activities of the greater Boston area.  According to Kevin Weeks, the right-hand man to notorious crime boss Whitey Bulger,

it was the federal government that enabled us to get as far as we did. Without their  interference, we would’ve been a short-lived gang.

Whitey Bulger is what the FBI refers to as a Top Echelon Informant in its own report called, The Attorney General’s Guidelines Regarding the Use of Confidential Informants in Chapter 3 the FBI says:

One of the more notorious of such cases is the Bulger-Flemmi matter described below in Confidential Informant Case Study 1. Stephen “the Rifleman” Flemmi and James “Whitey” Bulger, were “Top Echelon” confidential informants for the FBI’s Boston office. Along with four co-defendants, they were indicted for racketeering, conspiracy, extortion, and bookmaking charges in 1995.

Bulger, Flemmi, and other defendants were indicted in January 1995 and charged with multiple counts of racketeering, extortion, and other crimes. Four days after Flemmi’s arrest and the day before his indictment, the Special Agent in Charge (SAC) of the FBI’s Boston field office notified the U.S. Attorney in the District of Massachusetts for the first time that Bulger and Flemmi had been informants for the FBI for much of the period covered by the indictment.

In September 2001, Bulger and Flemmi were charged in a new indictment with committing 19 and 10 murders, respectively, and with conspiratorial liability for a total of 21 murders, all committed while they were providing information to the FBI.



Another current example of U.S. government involvement in illegal activities, is the United States government’s protection and subsequent consolidation of the Sinaloa drug trafficking cartel in Mexico.  The infamous “El Chapo” who was recently captured had been indicted in the past by the U.S. government along with several members of the upper management of his organization.  In a past federal court case involving a high-level leader of the Sinaloa cartel, the defendant surprised the court by asserting as his defense that he and several other high-level members including the leader of the organization (El Chapo) had a deal with the U.S. government to provide information regarding rival Mexican Drug Trafficking Organizations. (See Here)

Sound familiar?

As detailed in court documents filed in United States Federal Court (see here):

Humberto Loya-Castro (Loya) is a high ranking member of the leadership of the Sinaloa Cartel and is a close confidante of Joaquin Guzman Loera (El Chapo).
The Sinaloa Cartel has been described as one of the largest drug trafficking organizations in the world.
Loya was indicted along with Chapo and Mayo in 1995 in the Southern District of California and charged with participation in a massive narcotics trafficking conspiracy (Case No. 95CR0973). That case was dismissed on the prosecution’s own motion in 2008 after Loya became an informant for the United States government and had provided information for a period of over ten years.
Sometime prior to 2004, and continuing through the time period covered in the indictment, the United States government entered into an agreement with Loya and the leadership of the Sinaloa Cartel, including Mayo and Chapo. Under that agreement, the Sinaloa Cartel, through Loya, was to provide information accumulated by Mayo, Chapo, and others, against rival Mexican Drug Trafficking Organizations to the United States government. In return, the United States government agreed to dismiss the prosecution of the pending case against Loya, not to interfere with his drug trafficking activities and those of the Sinaloa Cartel, to not actively prosecute him, Chapo, Mayo, and the leadership of the Sinaloa Cartel, and to not apprehend them.
The relationship between Loya and the leadership of the Sinaloa Cartel was such that Loya was permitted to sit in on meetings and discussions that the DEA was having regarding the Sinaloa Cartel, without regard to the likelihood that Loya would pass that information along to Mayo and Chapo.
The U.S. government cut a deal to wage war on all the competitors of the Sinaloa drug cartel.  Due to the neutralization of the cartel’s competition provided by the U.S. government, the Sinaloa drug cartel was developed into one of the largest drug trafficking organizations in the world.  Drug trafficking is one of the most lucrative businesses on the planet and being one of the largest drug traffickers in the world leads to some of the largest PROFIT generation in the world.  Hundreds of billions in profit are then LAUNDERED THROUGH UNITED STATES BANKING SYSTEM GENERATING BILLIONS IN PROFITS AND BONUSES FOR WALL STREET (see example here of Wells Fargo caught laundering 378 Billion Dollars in drug money from which the bank profited $12 Billion)
But this is not a film critique or a piece about crime bosses.  This article is specifically about how elements within our government partner with criminals and their crime organizations in order to Consolidate, Manage, and Control the most profitable criminal enterprises, for the purpose of using the illicit profits to achieve objectives which could not otherwise be achieved within the legal framework of our Constitutionally based system.

Here are some other examples of how the U.S. government participates in illegal activities around the world:
Remember the Iran-Contra affair?  Here’s a quick summary:
The Problems: Iran had U.S. hostages and Nicaragua was turning leftist due to the recent election of the Sandinista’s. And the U.S. Congress had expressly made illegal any U.S. government agency or any arranged third party from explicitly funding the Contras in Nicaragua.
The Solution: To get around the Law passed by Congress, use profits from arms sales to Iran (illegal) to fund the Contra resistance in Nicaragua (illegal).  Also, use profits from illegal drug importation from Colombia into the U.S. to fund the Contras.
Oliver North, working for the National Security Council, was charged with facilitating weapons sales to Iran. At the time, Iran was in the middle of a war with Iraq (the CIA was also supporting Iraq with arms and money (see here) to fight our “enemy” Iran)  The weapons sales to Iran were forbidden legally at the time because Iran was categorized as a terrorist state due to the recent Islamic revolution which put the Ayatollah Khomeini in charge of Iran and led to the hostage crisis of 1979. Further illegalities were due to the fact that Congress had passed the Boland Amendments which specifically outlawed the U.S. government and/or any arranged third party funding of the Contras.
The weapons sales to Iran were executed through Israel since the activity was illegal in the United States.   Weapons were sent to Israel specifically to be sold to Iran.  After Israel transferred the weapons to Iran, the profits generated were funneled into Nicaragua in order to fund the Contras who were waging a war on the new, peacefully elected, leftist government (the Sandinistas).
In addition, as documented by Gary Webb in Dark Alliance (see here); the CIA, Contra guerrillas in Nicaragua, and drug cartels in Colombia teamed up to fly cocaine into Los Angeles (see here), to be distributed throughout the country.  The millions of dollars of profits generated were then used to fund the paramilitary activities of the Contras in Nicaragua.  A recent film also depicts Gary Webb’s investigative expose into the CIA’s illegal activities called Kill The Messenger.
There is no question in my mind that people affiliated with, on the payroll of and carrying the credentials of the CIA were involved in drug trafficking while involved in support of the contras… Senator John Kerry in the Washington Post 1996.
The point here is that the U.S. government (specifically the CIA) intentionally engaged in profiting from drug trafficking on U.S. soil.  Also, after Congress specifically restrained the Executive Branch from engaging in the support of a forceful overthrow of an elected government (Nicaragua), the Executive branch intentionally proceeded to illegally engage in the exact activities which Congress had forbidden.   AND NO ONE WENT TO JAIL!

Afghanistan is yet another clear example of how elements within our U.S. government use Criminal Activities to reap Billions in profit to be used for “off the books” operations.  According to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), heroin production in Afghanistan was almost eradicated before the United States military took over the country; now opium production has skyrocketed and currently over 90% of the heroin in the world comes from Afghanistan. Heroin’s big comeback is made possible by the U.S. Military Protecting Poppy fields from being destroyed by the Taliban-MUST SEE VIDEO HERE. The poppies are protected so that they can make it to the marketplace in the form of Heroin.  And considering that the United States controls Afghanistan and its airspace-how do you think it is being flown out of the country to be distributed throughout the world.
As a regular procedure, our government uses illicit profits gained from illegal activities in order to fund many “off-the-books” or “black budget” foreign policy programs which are never approved by Congress and in many cases are expressly declared illegal by Congress.  AND NO ONE DOES ANYTHING ABOUT IT!
