Ex-CIA Spy Admits Tip Led to Nelson Mandela’s Long Imprisonment

Ex-CIA Spy Admits Tip Led to Nelson Mandela’s Long Imprisonment

A tip from a CIA spy to authorities in apartheid-era South Africa led to Nelson Mandela’s arrest, beginning the leader’s 27 years behind bars, a report said on Sunday.
Donald Rickard, a former US vice-consul in Durban and CIA operative, told British film director John Irvin that he had been involved in Mandela’s arrest in 1962, which was seen as necessary because the Americans believed he was “completely under the control of the Soviet Union”, according to a report in the Sunday Times newspaper. “He could have incited a war in South Africa, the United States would have to get involved, grudgingly, and things could have gone to hell,” Rickard said. “We were teetering on the brink here and it had to be stopped, which meant Mandela had to be stopped. And I put a stop to it.”

Broken Promises: 99% of Hillary Victory Funds Never Benefited State Parties

Broken Promises: 99% of Hillary Victory Funds Never Benefited State Parties

According to Politico, of the $60 million raised by and for the Hillary Victory Fund, a PAC jointly controlled by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC, less than 1% of the money raised ended up benefiting state Democratic parties. Why does this matter? Because Clinton has been touting from day one, it seems, that she’s been raising money for the party as well as for herself, and the media, even after stories like this, by actor and activist Margot Kidder, started coming out, has been taking her at her word, allowing the assertion to go unchallenged, even when the facts were at hand. I’ve been calling the Hillary Victory fund a “kickback scheme.” Others have called it money-laundering. Full explanation of how the transfers work is here.

Supreme Court Actions are Unconstitutional

Supreme Court Actions are Unconstitutional

The Supreme Court must by the Constitution hear every case presented to it. It does not. It hears only 1% of those presented annually, justifying this by the unconstitutional Judiciary Act of 1925 under President William Howard Taft. The Su[preme Court is the third branch of government along with Congress and The Executive. It guarantees citizens equality under Law. As it stands now there is NO equal protection under law.

Missouri City Bans Edible Plants from Front Yards

Missouri City Bans Edible Plants from Front Yards

Do you think a free citizen should have the right to grow food on their own private property? A city board in Missouri doesn’t think so. In fact one family has been given a mere four days to destroy their beloved food source simply because it is in their front yard. Nathan Athans loves his garden. “I spend all my free time out here,” he says. Besides the therapeutic and health benefits of getting your hands in the soil, and the financial savings of having fresh nutritious food readily available, Nathan also enjoys the peace of mind. “I want my family to know where their food is coming from, I don’t want to have to go to the grocery store and worry about what was done to that food,” he says.

Legalize it All: How to Win the War on Drugs

“The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people. You understand what I’m saying? We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did.”
