of DynCorp's earliest "police" contracts involved the protection of Haitian
President Jean-Bertrand Aristide, and, after he was ousted, providing the
"technical advice" that brought military officers involved in that coup into
Haiti's National Police.
High-ranking members of the Haitian National
Intelligence Service (SIN), which had been set up and financed in the 1980s by
the US CIA as part of the war on drugs, were
involved in the coup, and were reportedly still receiving funding and training
from the CIA for intelligence-gathering activities at the time of the coup.
Representative John Conyers (D-Michigan) expressed concern that the
only US government agency to publicly recognize the Haitian junta's role in
drug trafficking was the DEA, and that, despite a wealth of evidence provided
by the DEA proving the junta's drug connections, the
downplayed this factor rather than use it as a hedge against the junta (as
the US government had done against General Manuel Noriega).

Aerial spraying of
herbicide, a method of coca eradication reminiscent of Operation Ranch
Hand, takes place in Colombia exclusively because of that government's
willingness to coöperate with the US in the militarized eradication of
coca after signing Plan Colombia in 2000.
In most cases the
spraying is carried out by American contractors,
including DynCorp, using planes and helicopters to spray
glyphosate on coca
Recently, Boliviana negra, a glyphosate resistant type of
genetically engineered coca plant has been introduced, which was found to
resist glyphosate herbicides as well as have an increased yield.

This web site is not a commercial web site and
is presented for educational purposes only.
This website defines a new
philosophical ideology to which its author adheres. The author feels that the
falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace
unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done
purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish
to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance
occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious
beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the
founding of a mystery school aptly named The Truth of the Way of the
Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason
which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no
church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to
develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit
of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that
has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the
Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the
author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in
America is considered a "hate crime."
This web site in no way condones
violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is
already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control
the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world
banking system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military
entertainment complex of America and is responsible for the collapse of morals,
the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global
ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does
not occur at the point of a gun.
American social mores and values have
declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international
cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to
deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional
buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior
corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction
of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to
the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction
and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been
directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that
further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
