    Robert Mazur (Infiltrator/undercover agent), Global Banking, Terrorism

    in Politics Conservative

    We have a very special guest this morning "in the Pickle Barrel".


    Robert Mazur was a federal customs and excise agent who lived the high life of Colombia's most powerful cartels while using his undercover alias Bob Musella. One of his prioritized missions was to record the abundant amount of damning evidence that would culminate into a major takedown at a staged wedding. His target under Operation C-Chase was bankers who manipulated complex international finance systems in order to launder money for drug lords like Pablo Escobar, and ultimately proved critical in the conviction of General Manuel Noriega.


    Do I have some guestions for this man? What do you think? Why and how these Cartels continue to operate freely? How do these cartel's pose a threat to our national security? Have you always had a death wish? and many more.


    Jump 'In the Pickle Barrel this morning and join the discussions on the world of global banking and how these banks contribute to the world of terrorism.


    Hope to see you at 8AM-10AM EST

    How Miami snowed the Feds in the 1980s with "cocaine running round the bay"

    in History

    Jon is flabberghasted by the fact that the drug war in Miami was so intense in the early 1980s that even Ronald Reagan was advised not to enter the city of Miami at ALL.  The early 1980s was brought on by a borderless situation where drug lords overran local civil authority in Mexico, Colombia and other Central American states.  1 in every 4 people who died in Colombia died by drug related offenses.  It didn't help that by the mid 1980s, Nicaragua and El Salvador was infiltrated by the CIA who were training rebels to fight the powers that be.  This probably irritated drug lords more that America had their hand in the cookie jar.  Jon goes into the dynamics of the drug trade in Florida, not necessarily the government underpinnings.


    There is a 10 minute vignette on the high school scene at McDonalds in Duluth.

    Life for MJ Prisoner Speaks Out & Don Duncan On Failure of MMJ Initiatives

    in News

    In 1986 Randy Lanier won a sports car championship and shattered an Andretti record to become the Indy 500 rookie of the year. What most people didn't know is he paid for his racing dreams by smuggling massive quantities of marijuana.


     


    At the height of the Reagan-era War on Drugs, federal prosecutors charged Lanier and his associates with shipping more than 600,000 pounds of marijuana into the U.S. from Colombia. For eight months, he hid as a fugitive in Antigua, but was eventually caught, arrested, prosecuted and a few days before Christmas 1988 was sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole.


     


    Under mysterious circumstances that remain sealed by a court order, he was released on Oct. 15, 2014 and is living in a halfway house in Florida. As our first guest, Randy reveals what he is allowed to about his case, speaks out on the necessity of freeing the multitude of people serving life sentences in prison for marijuana prohibition offenses and takes a look at a world that has changed considerably in three decades,


     


    Local initiatives in California communities to allow for patient cultivation and to reverse bans and enact ordinances­­ to allow medical marijuana collectives did not fare well in the November 2014 elections. On the other hand, initiatives to impose taxes on medical marijuana sales did very well. Our 2nd guest is Don Duncan, one of the founders of Americans for Safe Access and currently serving on their Board of Directors, has been up to his neck in alligators on this issue for over a decade.


     


    As the chief lobbyist for ASA, Don has come to learn the intricacies of local and state government and will discuss why the mmj collective and patient cultivation initiatives failed, why taxing marijuana was so popular and what options are available to address the continuing problem of patient access to mmj on the state and local level.

    Free for All Friday with a Special Guest Host Who is an Atheist

    in Current Events

    Today we are going to look at the news of the week with a special guest host who is a former Christian and now professes to be an atheist.


    Our guest host is Karl Kemerait.  Here's a little bit more about Karl, from Karl :) 


    I grew up in Connecticut, spent 10 years in the Navy. For the geeks out here I spent 1 year on board the USS Enterprise (the Aircraft carrier, NOT the Starship). I attended Gallaudet College in Washington D.C. where I majored in Interpreting (sign language) . I am married with 3 children, my wife is from Colombia and I have been an atheist for roughly the last 20 years. Prior to that I was a born-again Christian for almost 25 years were I spent my time teaching and with apologetics, evangelizing mostly people from various Western cults such as Jehovah's Witnesses and Mormons. During my time as a Christian I attended Gathering of Believers in Maryland had an opportunity to meet with Bill Bright of Campus Crusade for Christ, and also Scott Ross who was the DJ on one of the first Christian "Rock" Radio stations in the country.  I am self-employed and work as a computer programmer. For hobbies I enjoy building bird houses, playing tennis, trying to fix-up my '78 Fiat spider convertible and am preparing to take up the cello, even though it terrifies me since I have no sense of timing or rhythm!


    Enjoy the show!
