    Members of White House Staff Canned After Revealing Past Cannabis Use

    Five Staffers Were Fired Over Past Weed Use Even Though The White House Said It’d Be More Chill
    Just look at the fact that three of the five last presidents have admitted to past cannabis use,” said one marijuana advocate, “including Biden’s former boss.”

    Dozens of young White House staffers have been suspended, asked to resign, or placed in a remote work program due to past marijuana use, frustrating staffers who were pleased by initial indications from the Biden administration that recreational use of cannabis would not be immediately disqualifying for would-be personnel, according to three people familiar with the situation.

    Che Guevara’s Racism

    https://americasfuture.org/che-guevaras-racism/

    By: Joseph Hammond

    When Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., chastised Jay-Z and Beyonce in a TV interview for their recent trip to Cuba, he especially criticized Jay-Z for his adoration of Che Guevara.

    “I think Jay-Z needs to get informed,” Rubio said. “One of his heroes is Che Guevara. Che Guevara was a racist. Che Guevara was a racist that wrote extensively about the superiority of white Europeans over people of African descent, so he should inform himself [about] the guy that he’s propping up.”

    Jay-Z, Carlos Santana, and Johnny Depp — who have all been spotted in Guevara t-shirts in the last decade — have, as Rubio correctly noted, largely ignored the issue. Yet, some leftist defenders of Guevara do occasionally deal with this troubling issue. A blogger named Faraji Toure at “Afro-Punk” a notes a troubling passage from Guevara’s 1952 diary:

    “The blacks, those magnificent examples of the African race who have maintained their racial purity thanks to their lack of an affinity with bathing, have seen their territory invaded by a new kind of slave: the Portuguese.”

    And: “The black is indolent and a dreamer; spending his meager wage on frivolity or drink; the European has a tradition of work and saving, which has pursued him as far as this corner of America and drives him to advance himself, even independently of his own individual aspirations.”

    Toure is quick to defend Guevara, noting that he was then only 24 and that this was his first experience with the African diaspora. Yet, this is an unlikely excuse. Jon Lee Anderson, who recounts the incident in his oft-cited biography Che Guevara: A Revolutionary Life, notes that Che had already visited Trinidad and Brazil prior to making this statement. Indeed it is quite likely that Che in his travels had already encountered scores of Latin Americans of African heritage in Colombia and Bolivia.

    The other argument often made in defense of Che is that he wrote such racist language before his participation in the Cuban Revolution and that he subsequently condemned racism. Guevara did just that in a number of post-revolutionary speeches after overthrowing Cuban leader Fulgencio Batista.

    (A brief aside about Batista, who (though largely forgotten today) was just as colorful and ambitious a dictator as the Castro brothers of Che. Batista was a Cuban of Indio, African, Spanish and Chinese heritage who maintained power with the support of various socialist groups in Cuba and had during World War II asked the United States to declare war on Fascist Spain.)

    Che In The Congo

    In 1965 — writing during his failed involvement in the Congo, with his Foco theory of guerrilla war disintegrating around him – Guevara lashed out at his African “comrades” with statements like: “Given the prevailing lack of discipline, it would have been impossible to use Congolese machine-gunners to defend the base from air attack: they did not know how to handle their weapons and did not want to learn.”

    Guevara had particularly dismissive words to say about the rebel leader Laurent Kabila. Guevara focused on the character flaw of Kabila, noting that he was a hard-drinking womanizer. Given Guevara’s own social behavior as revealed in his diaries, sober living was hardly necessary to be a Marxist guerrilla. Guevara’s reading of Kabila seems even more incorrect when we consider that Laurent Kabila (without the help of Cuba) eventually seized power in 1997. Kabila’s son Joseph still rules the Democratic Republic of the Congo to this day.

    The racist passages in Che’s diaries are also surprising given that they were certainly censored before release. Indeed, the diary of Guevara’s time in the Congo was only released by the Castro regime in 2002.

    Jeanette Alcon, whose grandfather was a member of the unit that eventually captured Che Guevara in Bolivia, has a rather offered this rather balanced view of Guevara’s racial history

    “Che Guevara was a doctor that helped villages cope with leprosy before the revolution,” Alcon told Doublethink. “A lot of the villages had indigenous people living in them. I don’t think he was racist per se, but then again I don’t think he cared much for the Bolivian people. Communism needed to spread and Bolivia was seen as ripe for communist revolution.”

    Che’s views on racism smack of similar political opportunism. When it was useful to abandon his previous racial views to fight in the Cuban revolution, he readily did so. When it was convenient to use racial stereotypes to castigate his Congolese comrades and cover-up the deficiencies of his fellow Cubans he didn’t hesitate.

    In fact, an increasing number of modern leftists and left anarchists are likely to see Che, not as a revolutionary hero, but just one of a long line of communist murderers of the 20th century.

    Che should be remembered for the political terror he was involved in and publically defended on a number of occasions. This was a man who was a defender of the North Korean regime and who deeply mourned the death of Joseph Stalin. Even sympathetic biographers, such as John Anderson, concede that Che oversaw many executions at Cuba’s notorious La Cabańa prison following the 1959 revolution. Though the exact number of killed is unclear, thousands were killed in Cuba’s post-revolutionary purge and forced labor camps. There is even some evidence that Guevara personally carried out some of the murders associated with the revolutionary period. As the Huffington Post points out, Guevara hoped the Soviets would launch nuclear attacks on American cities, for some reason confident that the communists would win such a war.

    Thus, the best reason for condemnation of Guevara isn’t the racist statements buried away in his diaries but, the very visible blood on his hands.

    One might think that a "Reporter" could ask why the Feds owned a patent on the use of the main ingredient.

    Because the dumbed-down American people have been told by various Attorney Generals that

    THERE IS NO MEDICAL USE FOR MARIJUANA

    US Patent 6630507 – What You Need to Know

    While the DEA, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and Department of Justice fight to keep marijuana a Schedule I drug (the same category as heroin and PCP) claiming it has no medical value; the US Department of Health and Human Services clearly has a different opinion, as it owns US Patent 6630507, for the medicinally therapeutic properties of the plant.

    Fourteen (now 18) years ago, this month, the US government issued a patent for cannabis-based compounds to itself, yet cannabis patients, caregivers, and advocates are still fighting to prove the healing properties of the herb.

    The patent clearly states that cannabinoids are powerful antioxidants which have the potential to treat a myriad of ischemic, age-related, inflammatory, and auto-immune disorders. The patent goes on to say cannabinoids are also a natural neuroprotectant which could help treat neurological damage caused by stroke and trauma, as well as, other neurological disorders like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s Disease, and Multiple Sclerosis.

    Due to this definition of cannabinoids having known medical and therapeutic effects by the US Government, the number 6630507 went viral on the internet as cannabis users and supporters from all over the world told the DEA to “talk to the hand”, as they wrote “#6630507” on their hands and anything else marijuana-related and posted them to social media... https://internationalhighlife.com/us-patent-6630507/

    The American People are the most lied to people in the world.

    And this whopper was about a PLANT.

    WHY WOULD THE US GOVERNMENT LIE ABOUT A PLANT?

    Liars, Cheats and Thieves rule the US, and Americans are apparently unable to do anything at all about it

    By that logic, Harris should leave the administration since she admitted to using cannabis in the past.

    I'm at a lack for words when it comes to marijuana. To begin with, I believe it is a healthy way to unwind, and all that talk about dependency is a misconception, believe me. In the other hand, there is a risk that you will become too vulnerable, but this is based on the fact that you might become addicted to the feeling of being in control of your life. It's easier to try once than to wonder for the rest of your life, as I always say.

    Because hemp is THE most valuable plant on the earth; ship sails, canvas, etc were all made of hemp. Ford used to make his cars out of hemp, which were almost impossible to destroy. Big Steel/Cotton couldn't have that so they had the government make it illegal by connecting it to it's sister plant marijuana. This is also not a dangerous plant, but by giving it it's Mexican name & telling everyone that marijuana was horrible, .gov could sell the public on making it AND hemp (which has NO drug properties) illegal.

    Once again, the significance of the patent has been ignored. Why don't more Americans care about history?

    Americans are very rarely ambivalent about history. They hate it.

    They are trained to from a very early age, by way of achingly boring classes and stringent tests on meaningless dates. Memorizing the dates is made more difficult by compartmentalization. The big picture is never taught. No effort is made to teach anything interesting.

    It can't be an accident. Those who refuse to learn from history are doomed to repeat it, and repeating it is just what the person who aspires to be the next Stalin or Hitler wants us to do.

    Exactly. Ironically, there's another thread going on right now that is nothing but false history, But I'm not sure I want to get involved in telling some truth- might blow a few members' brain cells- LOL.

    Luckily I learned to love history & to look into real historical events instead of what the system wants everyone to believe. People need to remember that history is written by the winners & that we should always question everything.
