lll-Gotten Gains, The Rockefeller War on Drugs, Part 2 of 4

The year 1913 brought bad publicity for Rockefeller Junior because of his role in what is now known as the Ludlow Massacre.  The Ludlow Massacre occurred at a coal mine in Colorado where many striking miners had already been killed in this long strike.  It got national attention when 20 women and children were killed in a strike related explosion.  It was believed that the victims had been killed by strikebreakers, allegedly hired by Junior to end the long running strike. Since Junior owned the mines and sat on the board of directors and knew what was happening, he got blamed.  In addition to the strike breakers being involved in this tragic event, it seems that the National Guard had also been called out to protect the financial interest of the owners of the mines. The women and children had been blown up, with many of the victims dying from burns. This tragedy caused the public to be very angry and people demanded an investigation.  According to reports I have read of this tragedy, this experience supposedly had a great impact on Junior. He said he was a changed man and he promised to do nothing but good work from then on out, after having gone through such a terrible experience.  He was allegedly a changed man, showing apparent contriteness. But as time would prove years later down the road, Junior might talk the good talk, but he sure did not walk the good walk. Junior would demonstrate in later years that resorting to the use of violence was his favorite tactic to get his way.  
By 1914 the Rockefellers pretty much controlled the political process in the United States.  They pushed for control of narcotics and got the Harrison Narcotic Act passed, which was the first of many laws concerning the control of opium and narcotics. The Rockefellers, with the help of their so called medical experts doing their bidding, waged a scare campaign against the use of opium/narcotics. They portrayed people who used narcotics as sinners and bad people who should be punished. The Rockefellers also brought the prohibitionist minded and intolerant missionaries into his propaganda campaign against narcotics. These were the same missionaries that later sat on his international narcotic commission and would later become part of the League of Nations. The laws that were passed by Rockefeller allies greatly helped the Rockefellers secure their medical monopoly and put the control of narcotics squarely in their hands. They created federal agencies like the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which was just one among the many government agencies they controlled.  They financed politicians to run for office and had a lot of money to spread around.  Although the Rockefellers are more associated with the Republican Party, they also funded other political parties and candidates too. Many Democrats were Rockefeller allies also. There is much information about this subject on the Internet. Using a search engine, look for (pharmaceutical companies, Rockefeller) or (drug companies, Rockefeller). You will be amazed at all the information. 
The fact that prior to 1914 before the passage of the Harrison Narcotic Act, people could purchase narcotics (opiates) without a doctor's prescription which gave the population the freedom to treat their own aches and pains. Once this law was passed, people would be forced to seek a doctor (the Pharma distribution system) before finding pain relief. Patients often found that doctors were reluctant to give narcotics, but freely prescribed Pharma drugs instead. People had to pay the doctor for his time, and many could not afford to pay, and thus suffered in silence.
The creation of the League of Nations in 1919 was the result of the Rockefeller efforts with the help of some of their wealthy allies.  I do not want to focus too much on detail about its creation, because an entire book could be written about just this subject alone. However, it is important to know some information about the League of Nations, because it is so crucial in understanding the planning and implementation of the global war on drugs. The war on drugs, which has brought so much misery and bloodshed throughout the world, is waged to protect the profits of the chemically based pharmaceutical companies which are owned by the Rockefellers. Furthermore, the war on drugs helps the Rockefellers maintain their monopolistic control on the United States medical system as well as the medical systems of other countries throughout the world.   
Around 1915 a group of wealthy New York state tycoons, led by the Rockefellers, got together to create a worldwide organization designed to protect the Rockefeller financial global empire. This organization would become the League of Nations. Woodrow Wilson, who happened to be the President during this time, was to be the Rockefeller pitch man for their scheme. Wilson presented to the public his famous Fourteen Points speech, which basically explained to the public what a good idea this concept of a League of Nations was. The Fourteen Points Speech was to be an introduction to the public about the concept of the League of Nations. Nowhere in the Wilson Fourteen Points is there ever any mention of drug prohibition.  I know this because I looked specifically for any reference to drugs and could not find any. Not a word about drugs. Yet as soon as the League of Nations was formed a narcotics commission was immediately created concerning this very matter of drug prohibition. Remember the missionaries mentioned previously who sat on the International Narcotic Commission meetings back in 1909 and 1912 in Shanghai, China. This was the so called missionary group chosen by Rockefeller and these meetings were sponsored by the U.S. State Department. This is the same group of missionaries that now would sit on the narcotic commission of the newly formed League of Nations. 
So the questions to be asked about President Woodrow Wilson are these: When he presented his Fourteen Points speech to the public, was he trying to deliberately mislead the public by lying by omission, or did he honestly not know what the Rockefellers were really doing and he was not aware of the deception. In either case, the public was deceived about the real agenda of the League of Nations.
During the few years following the decision to start the League of Nations, much political maneuvering went on and there was much controversy on the matter. Some people believed that if the United States joined the League of Nations, that the United States would lose its autonomy.  If you research this subject, you will discover that the terms agreed to by those countries that did join the League of Nations show that they did have to give up a lot of their own sovereign rights to the organization. Remember the old fake South Improvement Company that Rockefeller Senior often used in the early days of building the Standard Oil monopoly. Rockefeller used this fake company in order to hide his identity and true intentions in order to ensnare and bilk his fellow competitors out of their businesses. Senior had used this fake company to get people to sign away their business rights to him.  A country signing on to the League of Nations pretty much agreed to sign away much of their autonomy, just like the competitors used to do when they would sign away their rights to the South Improvement Company without realizing what they were doing.
The League of Nations officially came into existence with the signing of the Versailles Peace Treaty in 1919, but the date of 1920 is the year given when the League of Nations began its operations from Geneva, Switzerland. The Treaty of Versailles officially ended World War I. The Rockefeller original plan was that once the Peace Treaty was signed, which authorized the creation of the League of Nations to begin with, the United States would automatically become a member of the League of Nations, subject to its rules. However the original provision that automatically made the United States a member of the League of Nations upon signing of the treaty was changed. The reason the provision got changed was when Andrew Mellon (1855 to 1937), a Pittsburgh banker, industrialist, and an honorable man along with some of his wealthy friends insisted that the Senate first approve or ratify the entry of the United States into the League of Nations before it would be allowed to happen. This requirement for Senate approval foiled the original Rockefeller plans for the United States automatic entry into the League. To make matters worse for the Rockefellers, the Senate refused to approve the U.S. entry into the League, and it would be years before the U.S. would be officially admitted to the organization. I do not know if the Rockefellers actually knew that it was Andrew Mellon and his friends who prevented the automatic entry of the U S into the League, but I believe the Rockefellers must have known, but just could not stop Mellon and his friends from throwing up this particular obstacle. It should be noted that Mellon, who owned the Gulf Oil Company was a rival of the Rockefellers, both in business and politics, despite the fact they were both Republicans. Andrew Mellon would later also serve his country as The Secretary of the Treasury. During the Andrew Mellon years in government, and even after he retired from government service, the Rockefeller allies persecuted Mellon. This information about Andrew Mellon can be found in an Andrew Mellon biography written by David Cannadine. 
Though the United States at that time (1920), did not officially join the League of Nations, that did not stop the Rockefellers. Unofficially the Rockefellers acted as if the U.S. entry into the League was already a done deal. The U.S. government acted the same way and cooperated fully with the new Rockefeller organization. The reason the Rockefellers and the government acted this way is because the Rockefellers by now controlled most of the U.S. government. 
During the time from 1917 through about 1919 when all this drama and publicity was going on with the League of Nations, another issue was looming on the horizon. This is when alcohol prohibition started to rear its ugly head. The Rockefellers were the biggest instigators of alcohol prohibition of anyone. They spread huge sums of money to various temperance groups and churches to stir the waters of prohibition fever. Without the Rockefellers pushing for prohibition of alcohol, there would have never been prohibition in the first place.  Senior reportedly did not drink, but allegedly Junior liked to drink alcohol.  So why did the Rockefellers do it? That is the big question, why did they do it and why did they choose that particular time in history to do it?  Senior must have taught Junior by now that you do not embark on a campaign like this without a good business reason to do it. By making Alcohol prohibition a moral issue the Rockefellers could hide their true intentions. 
Prohibition of alcohol (1920 to 1933), known as the Volstead Act, really did not ban all alcohol, just alcohol made from using a distillation process.  According to my research on this subject, during prohibition people were actually allowed to make up to 200 gallons of homemade wine (which is fermented, not distilled) per person per year. That is a lot of wine, and wine can get you just as drunk as distilled liquor can. So why was only distilled liquor, including beer, which is also distilled, banned? According to the law back then, a person could make up to 200 gallons of wine every year, yet were not allowed to have a back yard still to make even a drop of alcohol.  It seems very contradictory and I have a theory about alcohol prohibition.  
My theory is that implementing the Volstead Act was the only way that The Rockefellers could prevent Henry Ford from starting his ethanol/hemp fuel industries, which Henry was determined to do. Rockefeller Senior had always disliked any kind of competition from anyone at anytime. Senior had a great aversion to any kind of competition and always believed that anyone competing with his businesses had to be defeated.  He hated anyone making money on his petroleum products and believed all profits should go to him and took over many other businesses because of this attitude. For example if a chemical company, which depends on petroleum products, was making a product such as drugs, Senior would be driven to take over their business and make the product himself. Senior was obsessed with creating vast monopolies and was a man driven to own everything he could get his hands on. Old Rockefeller Senior just could not stand any other businesses that would take away from his vast oil profits, which ethanol would have done. That is why I have concluded that Rockefeller Senior was the one who pushed for alcohol prohibition.  Junior helped his father to implement prohibition, but I think the plan for alcohol prohibition was an old Rockefeller Senior idea from the very beginning. In my opinion, Junior was not smart enough to figure this scheme out on his own, but his father, old Senior, was certainly capable of getting this accomplished. 
Henry Ford built his early automobiles to run on hemp/marijuana fuel.  Hemp was the plant of choice for Henry because the Hemp plant makes far more fuel than any plant known at that time.  Henry made Hemp fuel (ethanol) from his own distillery located on his property and sold it to local customers living near his auto plant.  Henry also taught people how to make hemp fuel to run their cars, using a simple backyard still or even a car radiator to make the fuel. Henry was especially happy to teach farmers how to make fuel to run their tractors and other farm equipment.  Hemp fuel, like other plant fuels burns clean and has no harmful additives. Modern race car drivers use ethanol in their high performance cars because ethanol is a high performance fuel.  Ethanol can be mixed with regular gasoline to improve the octane rating of the gasoline which also helps stops engine pinging.
In the early days when Ford cars were starting to roll off the assembly line, there were no gas stations around.  Henry had to be able to tell people about hemp fuel so they could run their cars.  Eventually, when enough cars were being driven on the road, the gas stations started to appear and these early gas stations began to make a lot of money selling gasoline for all the additional cars.  Henry wanted to start an industrial business making hemp fuel for cars.  He wanted to build distilleries all around the country and turn hemp into fuel.  Every time Henry would try to get his business off the ground, the government would stop him with some excuse or another. During alcohol prohibition, Henry asked the government if he could re open some of the closed beer breweries to make hemp fuel, and each time the government turned him down. Eventually Henry Ford grew old and his idea for a hemp fuel industry faded from the scene.  Once that happened there was no longer a need for alcohol prohibition, because the Ford ethanol industry was no longer a threat to the Rockefeller gasoline sales, so prohibition finally ended.
