The coronavirus pandemic is the backdrop for the arrests of well-known CRIMINALS like Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro!
Today the U.S. Justice Department announced that Maduro and several other government officials have been charged with “turning Venezuela into a narco-state by collaborating with a leftist Colombian guerrilla group that exported tons of cocaine to the United States,” according to the Miami Herald.
Their stated goal was to “flood the United States with cocaine.“
TONS OF COCAINE!
“Recent data from the U.S. interagency Consolidated Counterdrug Database (CCDB) indicates that 210 metric tons of cocaine passed through Venezuela in 2018. By comparison, the State Department reports that over six times as much cocaine (1,400 metric tons) passed through Guatemala the same year.”
DRUG TRAFFICKING AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING HAS RUINED OUR SOCIETY
Remember the song “Cocaine” by Eric Clapton?
“If you want to hang out, you’ve gotta take her out, cocaine
If you want to get down, get down on the ground, cocaine
She don’t lie, she don’t lie, she don’t lie,
I was 12 years old when this song came out in 1977. I remember hearing my classmates singing it at gym class. I was horrified that kids my age were singing about cocaine. It turned out that cocaine was the “cool kids” drug.
Tons of cocaine later, we are looking at countries devastated, lives ruined, families destroyed, and rampant human trafficking.
DEATH RATES KEEP RISING
Data from 2018 shows that deaths involving cocaine and psychostimulants are continuing to rise. Each year, tens of thousands of people die from drug overdoses in the United States. Drug overdose deaths involving cocaine, psychostimulants with abuse potential (psychostimulants), or both substances combined increased 42.4% from 12,122 in 2015 to 17,258 in 2016.
HOLLYWOOD MADE DRUG USE LOOK AWESOME
Emilio Estevez, Demi Moore, Rob Lowe, Jodie Foster, Drew Barrymore… they all did drugs, and they all got busted. But look at them today—it didn’t really hurt their careers, did it?
As a kid growing up in the 80s, you were practically expected to do drugs. Movies and television glorified drug dealers and made it look fun to snort the white stuff up your nose.
We all need to stop idolizing Hollywood actors and people who make it look like taking drugs and having sex is the true essence of living. Drugs like cocaine have destroyed our society. The opioid epidemic made the problem even worse.
This is truly a time of world “cleansing“. Let’s do away with false idols, drug abuse, pornography, and staring at the world through the lens of a television.
It’s time to live in the real world.
