A New Low For Logos [UPDATES]

Jump to latest Update

Jan Irvin is becoming increasingly unhinged. See:

Debunking Jan Irvin

Debunking Jan Irvin Part 2

His latest behavior is a new low, even for him.

He is now reporting his critics to the FBI. For some reason he has enough influence with this government agency that they are actually going to peoples’ homes to question them for criticizing Jan and to intimidate them into stopping.

Fortunately the person in question has a Ring doorbell which records video, so he was able to capture the whole interaction. The video and sound quality is less than ideal, but you get the gist:

Jan accuses everyone else of being a government agent, but this is a clear sign that he is at best an FBI informant, and at worst an active part of their modern-day COINTELPRO operations.

The person swatted says:

He was obviously playing the christian card. Those FBI people said that he told them that he runs a christian podcast show. I told them he only recently started to claim to be a christian. That when I first met him he claimed Jesus was a mushroom and never actually existed. Pretty sure I know exactly when Jan called them. Because Jan told me he was going to call them. It was when he was filling multiple copyright claims on my channel. I emailed Jan trying to get him to stop filling copyright claims on me. He said he won’t stop. I called him a little bitch that dishes it out by attacking others constantly, but cries like a bitch when people give him a taste of his own medicine. When he did get the channel taken down I told him you just guaranteed that I will now make more videos on you. And that’s when he said he’s calling the FBI on me. I said go ahead. Not thinking he actually would. What I did not tell the FBI and I wish I would have remembered, was that Jan accuses other people of being me. But lately he’s been accusing people that disagree with him of being Steve (Zos). What the whole thing reminded me of is how whoever calls the cops first is the side the cops tend to take. Clearly the FBI did not even google Jan Irvin. They new nothing about him except for what he told them. Had they just googled his name, I bet they would have never bothered me.

[UPDATE 5/12/19]

The victim of Jan’s FBI swatting cyber-attack has spoken out, under his more commonly known alias:



These days Jan insists that anyone who questions him is a “crypto-Islamic Neo-Nazi”. This is ridiculous prima facie, because neo-Nazis are associated with racism and white supremacy, not praying to Mohammed.

Jan now claims that the government story of 9/11 is true, and that Islam is to blame for the collapse of the three towers – not the neocons and “dancing Israelis”.

Jan Irvin has appeared on Alex Jones’ InfoWars 3 times this year. On his most recent appearance he called out “GDL”, the Goyim Defense League, saying that they call for violence against gays. Like most of these claims, Jan provides no citation for it.

Since I published my Debunking posts and video, many truthers have now moved to publicly distance themselves from Jan. Jesse Spots severed all ties:

Former collaborator Matthew North said Jesse summed up his opinion too:

On May 17th Matthew North did a video explaining his thoughts on Jan.

Adam Green called him a “turncoat”, “deceptive”, and “fraudulent”:

Not content with publicly humiliating his wife – then asking the audience to send him superchats because “I need a steak dinner after this” – Jan has threatened her with legal action in an attempt to steal research she began before she ever met him.

On his most recent show he doxxed Handsome Truth from the GDL:

Doxxing and calling in copyright strikes to censor critics is colloquially known as “Gay Ops” in the truther community. Jan tried it with me:

Unfortunately for Jan, when I began collaborating with him I asked him to sign a contract giving me the right to use any content I created with him. Clearly he is not a man of his word, and lacks the integrity to honor contracts he has signed. I challenged the strike and it was removed.

Others were not so lucky. Albert Bishai was banned from live streaming because of a copyright strike from Jan, for playing a video from the Activist News channel that included a clip of Jan:

Jan’s recent shows promoting the Talmud and Islamophobia have been very poorly received by his audience, judging by the Like:Dislike ratio.

Jan claims that the many dislikes are from “shills”, in his mind it is not possible that any genuine person could dislike his content. Even if that were true, it does not explain why there are so few Likes from videos with thousands of views on a channel with 66,000 subscribers. He was doing much better a couple of years ago with my content:

His shows with his (third) ex-wife Holly were also well received:

Jan Irvin insists that he is an advocate for free speech, yet deletes comments, blocks anyone who questions him, files copyright strikes, and snitches to the FBI. All these actions are the complete opposite of what he professes to stand for. If you live in Logos you can defend your ideas with evidence and logic – there is no need to attack the messenger and silence dissent.

What will be next for Jan? More FBI raids on anyone who questions his increasingly erratic claims? Surely Alex Jones cannot condone frequent guests on his show acting in this manner.

[Update May 20 2019]

Insane in the Ukraine: J.Go Like You’ve Never Seen Him Before [UPDATES]

Recognize this guy? Jason Goodman, CEO of Aerocine, the first company to fly a full-size RED EPIC camera on a “heavy payload” micro-hexacopter drone.

It’s almost like we’re watching an actor playing a different character. This one is confident and slick, walking with a military bearing.

Here’s the video that was chopped out of this clip.

It’s certainly spectacular footage. They won an award at the first ever New York Drone Film Awards.

So why does Jason Goodman never mention this?

There’s nothing in his demo reel about it:

His company 21st Century 3D’s “news” section hasn’t been updated since 2012. Being a CEO of an award-winning drone company is somehow not newsworthy, or relevant to the resumé of a film-maker?

Why have we never once seen a drone shot, in hundreds if not thousands of episodes of Crowdsource the Truth? Why didn’t this expertise come up when Jason was covering the Las Vegas massacre? Why did he trespass to see what the view was like from on top of a nearby gas station when he could have got a better shot perfectly legally with a drone? He explored the theory of guns being attached to helicopters, so why didn’t he ever touch the idea of guns being on drones? He was the CEO of a company that pioneered heavy lift drones and was one of the first companies in the US to get one of the FAA 333 flight exemptions for drones.

Jason Goodman’s IMDB page stops in 2014, with the Bryan Singer movie X-Men: Days of Future Past.

In 2014 Goodman registered the trademark “Aerocine”.

On February 21, 2014 Aerocine flew their drone through the Chernobyl site in Pripyat, Ukraine – less than 100 miles from the capital city Kiev.

Image: Google Maps

When I say “through” I mean that quite literally, as the video has many shots of the drone inside buildings and structures. The city of Pripyat is a ghost town, abandoned since the nuclear disaster in 1986. The whole area is in a military Exclusion Zone that is now administered by Ukraine’s Ministry of Emergency Services.

When you land in a new country with a brand new drone, to attempt something never done before in cinematography, do you:

a) get off the plane and go immediately to the remote film site from the airport and start filming

b) rest for a few days, show up at the remote site on the day of filming and hope everything works fine first time

c) get off the plane and go to a hotel. Sleep, test the drone around a major city where you can get parts and repairs, and then travel to the remote film site confident it works

It would be c) don’t you think?

So it would be reasonable to assume that the Aerocine team was in Ukraine with their drone a few days earlier than the filming date February 21, 2014.

On February 18 , 2014 the Ukrainian “Color Revolution” turned hot in Kiev. The biggest day of massacre was February 20, 2014.

Isn’t that an interesting coincidence? Jason Goodman is the CEO of a company which is operating the world’s most advanced commercial HD video drone in Ukraine at the exact time a Western-backed coup breaks out there. It’s almost as big a coincidence as Jason having his “Crowdsource the Truth” team member Joe Napoli in the crowd in Las Vegas when the worst lone gunman massacre in history breaks out there.

The founders of Aerocine (who attended NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts) traveled the world, and deployed their drone with 3-man teams: pilot, camera operator, and aircraft technician.

Aerocine co-founder Brian Streem, rocking the ruby slippers

One of the key features of the Maidan revolution were snipers, who turned out to be picking off people on both sides to foment chaos.

 

How would the snipers figure out the best positions to shoot from? Searching on Google Earth would leave footprints. Strolling the streets checking out rooftops and balconies might attract attention and get picked up on CCTV surveillance.

Hmmm, what about a convenient cover story of flying an experimental drone with high-definition video capability through a site with no economic or military value? If anyone asks, you can show them all the paperwork that must surely have been issued to them by the government to access a radiological disaster zone that has been abandoned for 30 years. “We needed to test it before filming”. Of course a drone can’t help but record the views and angles from rooftops and balconies.

The Daily Beast had an exclusive article claiming the snipers were from Ukraine SBU (the post-Soviet version of the KGB)’s elite counter-terrorism Alfa Team, and had been trained by Russian special forces.

Many at the time felt that the coup was a Soros/Clinton/Obama/CIA-backed revolution, aimed at weakening Russia and monopolizing the gas pipeline infrastructure that brings most of Europe’s natural gas supply in.

After this successful mission in 2014, the team took their drone to the United Arab Emirates; specifically, Dubai

Here’s the first test flight of their rig, which was made by assembling off-the-shelf equipment.

Who are these guys?

 

Did they get those trenchcoats at Spies-R-Us?

For some unknown reason, Aerocine changed their name to Aerial Robotics and conducted the first “legal” drone flight in New York City, working closely with the Federal Aviation Authority. This was a big deal!

They even made Stars and Stripes, the official magazine of the US military:


New-Age Weaponry

The RED 4k camera weighs 16 lbs (7.3 kg)

A fully loaded M4 (military) weighs 7.4 lbs (30 rounds)

A fully loaded AR15 (civilian) weighs 8 lbs (30 rounds)

The Israelis are leading the way in drone technology:

A defense company put a machine gun on a drone

 

 

 

 

Duke Robotics even boasts a Rothschild on the board.

 

 

 


 

Ukraine

Ukraine has been brought to the forefront of US political discussion recently due to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s prosecution of lobbyists Paul Manafort, Tony Podesta and Rick Gates, who took millions from Ukraine. Manafort was formerly Roger Stone’s partner in Manafort-Stone, another lobbying firm.

Jason Goodman’s good friend and journalism mentor Lee Stranahan, whom he has known for 20+ years, is also an expert on Ukraine. He keeps claiming that Ukraine is the key to #SpyGate and meddling in the 2016 election, although no other journalists or publications are running with this story.

Jason frequently has Robyn Gritz on his show. She is quoted on the Wikipedia page for Oleg Deripaska. She was working for Robert Mueller and Andrew McCabe in the FBI when they recruited Deripaska as an agent who spent $25 million of his own money on a mission trying to rescue American CIA agent Robert Levison from Iran.

So Jason leaves his Hollywood career to fly drones. Their first mission is to Ukraine, where his team lands right before a CIA-backed coup breaks out. Was Jason with the team, boots on the ground? Or leading from the home office as CEO?

The video credits Oscar Ohlson as the drone pilot. Company co-founder Jeff Brink was definitely there, according to his Instagram:

 

Jason certainly wasn’t shy about basking in the glory of his company’s achievements. Here he is in Cannes, France:

What happened?

The next thing we know, Goodman is starting a YouTube channel. One of the debut episodes was 2 hours with Roger Stone:

Another early episode was dedicated to bashing President Trump, which is interesting given Goodman’s post-election 200+ Anti-Clinton shows with Charles Ortel.

What is Project TRUTH ENGINE? Who is it a project for? IARPADARPA? LARPers? All of the above?

Jason Goodman hit the big time when he linked up with George Webb, introduced by Lee Stranahan. Within a couple of weeks, he had introduced George Webb to Dr Jerome Corsi. Corsi fed George with steak, George fed Corsi with stories: that he was part of the WikiLeaks network, that he used to participate in thumb-drive drops in parks where he gave information to Mike Ratner (died 5/11/16) who passed it on to John Jones (died 8/16/16). Dead men can verify no tales. George also said that he met Julian Assange in Australia in 1984. At that time Julian would have been 12 and part of the Santiniketan Park Association MKULTRA cult.

Julian Assange was living in psychologist Anne Hamilton-Byrne’s cult where all the children had white hair and interchangeable names, when George Webb claims he met him at age 12

Self-described Zionist George Webb Sweigert must have passed the test of B’Nai B’rith Fund manager Corsi with flying colors, because a few days later both George and Jason met with Dr Corsi in his office.

The next day (or maybe it was 2 days) the Dynamic Duo are on InfoWars with Mike Cernovich. Their content came from Luke Rosiak‘s excellent reporting on the Awan Brothers protected Pakistani spy ring in Congress:

2 weeks after this, they used Jason’s YouTube channel and George’s fan base to shut down the 8th busiest port in the United States with a fake “dirty bomb” scare propagated through social media. Jason made sure he was texting back and forth with Jerome Corsi all the way through the event. George checked in with CIA case officer Robert David Steele before he provided the hashtags for the social media blast. In CryptoBeast #16 we heard from a former insider of this operation how an FBI contract informant with the code name “Deep Uranium” representing the shadowy “Hudson Intelligence Group” was feeding them the easily debunkable information that drove the operation.

They could have got some great shots of the container ship coming into port and the containers being examined with a drone.

It’s curious that none of this information appeared in Defango’s 2-hour doxx special on Jason Goodman.

[UPDATE: Defango claims that he covered all of this material before a year ago, just on his Merlin Defango backup channel where he deleted many [Manny] of the videos. He acknowledged that he did miss the Ukraine coup angle. I have updated the screenshot of Super-Goodman to credit that it came from Defango’s video.]


The drone company changed its name to Aerobo and took some investment from Valor Ventures who are expecting triple-digit revenue growth.

[Source: Crunchbase]

[Source: Pitchbook]

The company was profiled in Inc magazine’s 2017 “30 Under 30”, after Jason Goodman left. They exceeded $1 million in sales in their first year.

Started a company, got lots of Hollywood and (perhaps) intel contracts, made millions, raised millions…went back to being an electrician? The CEO went to begging for Patreon subs and George Webb sleeping on his couch?

It feels like there are parts of this story that we’re not being told.

[Update 4/12/18 11:41am]

Less than 2 weeks after the cyber-attack targeting the container ship Maersk Memphis shut down the Port of Charleston for 8 hours, the Maersk shipping line experienced another, far more severe cyber-attack. A devastating ransomware virus called “NonPetya” cost more than $300 million.

https://www.zdnet.com/article/maersk-forced-to-reinstall-4000-servers-45000-pcs-due-to-notpetya-attack/

Maersk has revealed that a devastating ransomware attack which struck businesses across Europe in 2017 required close to a “complete infrastructure” overhaul and the reinstallation of thousands of machines.

The Danish transport and logistics conglomerate fell prey to a campaign which used a modified version of the Petya ransomware, NonPetya, bringing down IT systems and operational controls across the board.

Maersk, a container ship and supply vessel operator, previously warned that the ransomware attack would cause losses of up to $300 million due to “serious business interruption.”

The firm, with offices in 130 countries and a workforce of close to 90,000, was one of the most high-profile victims of the Petya campaign, which spread rapidly by utilizing the leaked US National Security Agency (NSA) exploit EternalBlue, which targets Microsoft Windows systems.

The same exploit was used to spread WannaCry, ransomware which caused horrendous disruption to healthcare systems including the UK’s National Health Service (NHS).

In Maersk’s case, while no customer or business data is believed to have been exposed, the firm endured severe disruption and was forced to halt operations as the ransomware spread through core IT systems.

Speaking at the World Economic Forum this week, Møller-Maersk Chairman Jim Hagemann Snabe shared further details on the attack, which resulted in a reinstall of “our entire infrastructure,” according to the executive.

In total, Maersk reinstalled 4,000 servers, 45,000 PCs, and 2,500 applications in what the chairman called a “heroic effort” over ten days, one in which the executive said may have usually taken up to six months to implement.

“Imagine a company where a ship with 10 to 20 thousand containers is entering a port every 15 minutes, and for 10 days, you have no IT,” Hagemann commented. “It’s almost impossible to even imagine.”

However, thanks to the efforts of staff, the company only experienced a 20 percent drop in volume, while the remaining 80 percent of operations were handled manually until systems were up and running once more.

Hagemann said the ransomware attack was a “very significant wake-up call for Maersk, and you could say, a very expensive one.”

The Petya attack originated in Ukraine and quickly spread worldwide.

Where did that cyber-attack originate from? Ukraine.

In fact, Ukraine itself seems to have been the target of this unprecedented in scale cyberattack which came on the eve of Ukraine’s national holiday. It shut down radiation monitoring systems at the Chernobyl Power Plant.

From Wikipedia:

Who do we know that was a virus sales guy, who used to work for McAfee where he was a colleague of Russian-born author of “Operation Shady RAT” Dmitri Alperovich (founder of Crowdstrike)?

Oh yes…George Webb.

Curiouser and curiouser.

Who else do we know that knows John McAfee, George Webb, and Jason Goodman?

[Update 4/12/18 4:29pm]

George Webb has made a rebuttal video to clarify some of his claims. I am interested in veracity, so if anyone else mentioned here would like to make a video response to clarify or dispute anything I will include it on this page.

George definitely doesn’t think Jason was in on any “Government Action”, then gaslights about the years he met Assange. Now he met him when he was 16 at seminars teaching kids about UNIX. He taught at Melbourne University, Monash and LaTrobe. It could have been one of those, he saw about 4 kids the same age with the same dyed hair. He’s not claiming that it was Julian Assange. “They did have this thing out in the Dandenongs which was like children of the corn”

 


[Update 4/12/18 9:48pm]

Here is what George Webb said on the Hagmann Report about WikiLeaks on 5/25/17. I have edited it down to the specific WikiLeaks comments for brevity, original source here


[Update 5/12/18 8:52am]

George Webb made another video about me. In typical style, he pretends to know a bunch of stuff which turns out to be incorrect.

Let me clarify:

  • It’s Urbanise not Urbanize
  • I am a co-founder of the company and helped set up their Dubai office in 2007 (when it was called Majitek)
  • I don’t own Urbanise, it is a public company listed on the Australian Stock Exchange since 2014 UBN.AX
  • I have not been a substantial shareholder in the company for many years
  • I’ve never owned a private jet
  • I’ve never met any members of the UAE royal family (but I follow a couple of them on Twitter, which I guess to “researchers” like George makes me besties with them)

You can read most of this on my LinkedIn or Wikipedia pages. I guess George had the skills to find those but not to convey the information from the Web to his YouTube channel with accuracy. Or perhaps he can’t help himself, and just has to distort and add his own narratives to any information he presents.

I also made a video about my story. George Webb supporters who think that if I question anything he says that’s proof my money must come from deep state ratlines, and since I’m from New Zealand I must be a spy because there’s a “Five Eyes” intelligence sharing agreement, should check it out:


[Update 5/12/18 11:30pm]

The Rothschilds sure seem interested in these drone companies! What are the mathematically probabilities that this story could connected to 2 different Rothschilds, one putting guns on drones, one putting HD cameras on them?

After Jason left Aero(Cine)bo for the greener pastures of Roger Stone, Dr Corsi and George Webb, his Tisch schoolmate Brian Streem teamed up with Rick Rothschild to film Ferraris, the Statue of Liberty and the London Eye with 6k RED EPIC drones.

Who better than one of the Rothschilds to run consult to projects putting “Eyes in the Skies”?

 

In 2015 Aerocine Aerobo teamed up with #MeToo disgraced newsman Matt Lauer, to film him cycling


[Update 6/12/118 9:20am]

The plot thickens. Here is George and Jason down in Roger Stone’s neck of the woods, meeting Jason’s ex-wife who is Ukrainian (and a former Trump employee, who praises him enthusiastically). Interestingly, both George and Jason speak Russian in this video. George sounds particularly fluent, although I don’t speak Russian myself. His intonation and pronunciation sounds smooth and practiced.

(note: original video deleted since publishing, this is a substitute)

 

Tatyana Petruk was groomed from an early age in the Soviet Union to be an international gymnast. According to her resumé at Jason’s company 21st Century 3D, she left the circus to join Donald Trump.

She has a very special set of skills, which include “glow sticks”

Now she provides high-end entertainers to exclusive elite events.


[Update 8/12/18 8:01pm]

Queen Tut found another clip of J.Go speaking Russian:

 

#LimoCrash Investigation On Lift The Veil

A lot of things don’t add up about this limo crash. I started a Twitter thread gathering all the information and stories about it that I thought were interesting. It’s a rich tapestry, one that you won’t find anywhere else on the Interwebz. Why do so many mainstream media stories add so many details, and yet no mainstream media stories incorporate all these fascinating details? Are there seriously only like a dozen or two real journalists left in the wild?

So far I’m up to #120 noteworthy items in my thread. As I find more, I will keep adding it to this thread. It’s the craziest story I’ve found since I first got online in 1994. Which is really saying a lot!

The Twitter thread starts here and ends here (as I write this)

I did a 90-minute interview with Lift The Veil on it today. YouTube went down right as we were going live. YouTube was down for 90 minutes. The electricity  circuit breaker in my office went out at the same time also. #CoincidenceTheory, of course. Either that or this is the Front Lines of the Internet.

Thanks to my genius friend for the tip. Sometimes a little really means a lot 🙂

 

Acton v Goodman – Was Charleston Dirty Bomb Hoax an FBI Operation? [Updates]

[Update: some new analysis from Tracking the Leopard Meroz, go to their site for a summary]

Parties

The general description states, “This complaint alleges that the defendant, and his cooperative of wrongdoers, operate in alignment on social media for a common purpose.  By staging fake news, raising public alarm, spreading junk science, using deception to implement the Port hoax, etc. are rewarded with the expectation of remuneration, increases in their financial status and receipt of other such pecuniary advantages and benefits”.

Original Story:

Following on from the news that Dave “Acton” Sweigert sued The Mouth That Roared Jason Goodman in South Carolina court…

The plaintiff has filed a significantly amended complaint.

Perhaps adding fuel to the fire of rumors that Dave Acton Sweigert and George Webb Sweigert are the same person, Dave has chosen to file in court as “D. George Sweigert”. He is demanding a jury trial. The Exhibits share some of the mainstream media coverage of the port shutdown and his own credentials as a Homeland Security Critical Infrastructure expert. 

5-main

5-1

 

The significant development in this claim is the involvement of an FBI contract informant in the Crowdsourced LARP. Is that why nobody got in trouble for shutting a whole port down from a YouTube livestream?

The informant in question is allegedly Okey Marshall Richards, Jr, who has gone by the aliases “Deep Uranium”, “Rock Hudson”, and “Mr Hudson” in about 30 YouTube shows with these operatives. The “MidWest Conspiracy Theorist” is presumably the plaintiff’s brother George Webb. Webb has claimed to be part of “old Mossad” with many global intelligence connections, including a friendship with #pizzagate accused James Alefantis. George Webb is no stranger to FBI informants either, having written an Op-Ed about them for North Star Post in 2015 before launching his crowdsourced journalism career.

[via Tracking the Leopard Meroz]

Jason Goodman’s co-conspirator Quinn Michaels, aka Korey Atkins, has also claimed to be an FBI informant. Jason recently came to New Zealand to interview Vinny Eastwood about suspected operative Pete Santilli. Despite Vinny presenting a large amount of evidence to Jason of Santilli’s FBI involvement, Jason Goodman subsequently went on Pete’s show and proclaimed him his friend.

Then there is Goodman himself:

There are an awfully large number of FBI connections to this operation. In that context, is this a coincidence?


You can find the public court documents for yourself on PACER.

Goodman has also responded by having the Becks (of the fatal DNC lawsuit fame) on his show to discuss “Litigation as a weapon of mass destruction”.


 

[Update July 10 2018]

The plaintiff has filed a number of updated motions. He is claiming a large number of instances of copyright violations by the defendant.

The case has been referred to Judge Bristow Marchant, who presided over the Dylann Storm Roof mass shooting case (explored here by Miles Mathis – h/t Queen Tut).

This motion is asking the Court to recognize that Goodman’s discussing the case on his YouTube channel indicates his acceptance that he has been served.

This motion is seeking an injunction against the Defendant to cease copyright infringement on social media platforms.

BPM & Ending The War on Drugs: Don’t You Dare Look Away Now

Narco-sign in Playa Del Carmen after BPM shooting

Photo By Trevor Dunn

Editorial/Analysis by Terry Gotham

I’ve spent the last week interviewing people and collecting information about the worst thing to happen in live events since Orlando. Last week, the BPM Festival suffered a terrible attack, leaving 5 dead and more than a dozen wounded. Long considered one of the crown jewels of the festival circuit, this heinous attack has resulted in the local government showing BPM and all other music festivals the door. As usual, most commentary on the causes or effects either totally misses the mark or descends into slap fighting.

Before I dig into this story any deeper, I need to make a strong caveat. This commentary is in no way blaming anyone who was shot at, injured or killed for the violence that was done to them. I cannot stress this enough. While macroeconomic forces, drug cartels and America’s ineffectual responses to the growing demands for legalization are to blame for this attack, blaming BPM or BPM ticketholders for narco-terrorism is tone-deaf to the point of brutality. While I assume people will believe that was my aim to engage in some classist/leftist/racist point that serves only to divide, I believe this can be a wake up call for everyone who parties, not just those who take drugs or care about legalization, but for all Americans who believe in Constitutional rights.

According to Miguel Angel Pech Sen (district attorney of Quintana Roo, a Mexican state) at 2:30 AM, Monday morning, the security at Elrow’s closing party at the Blue Parrot was overwhelmed and the club was entered by an as-yet undetermined number of assailants. BPM declared that there was a lone gunman on the FB post about the shooting, but this has been called into question by a number of witnesses who spoke to Billboard and claimed they saw multiple shooters. The Attorney General later said it appeared there were “a lot of people carrying arms” in the club, and that many of those wounded were hit when security personnel were attempting to shoot the attacker. The attacker escaped, he said, and may have been assisted by a taxi in getting away. Three members of security died, a 4th, who seemed to be the target, and a fifth person died in the stampede to escape the club.

After the shooting at the Blue Parrot, the violence raged across Playa Del Carmen for the rest of the week. On Tuesday, a “Code Red” was activated in Cancun when the Control Center for Command, Computing & Communications was attacked by 10 armed men who arrived by motorcycle. Their goal was to extract a local drug cartel leader from holding, not kidding. Avenues in Cancun were attacked with fucking grenades, while shots were reported inside of the Plaza Las Americas Shopping Center. Narco-signs (messages from the cartels) sprang up, with the Zetas claiming responsibility and announcing that more violence was to come. Again, Playa Del Carmen banned not just BPM, but electronic music festivals, in case you had tickets to the Arena Festival, slated to go on in the beginning of February.

At this point, I hope it’s clear that this is a situation that the police and military do not have under control. While plenty of American and Canadian party people live blissfully unaware of the spiral of drug-fueled violence that Mexico is enduring, we need to stop pretending “this is fine.”

Whether it’s the Fast & Furious gun program, Hillary’s refusal to support legalization, or the psychedelic libertarianism I’ve written about before, the indifference to legalization as a priority has put billions into the hands of cartels that have much of Latin America by the balls. MS13, the Zetas, the Sinaloa Cartel, and dozens of others we’ve probably never even heard of have rained suffering and death across so much of our hemisphere. Our continued inability to care about the problems that come with drugs, namely opiate abuse by the poor and swelling the coffers of organized crime, has all but ensured that tragedies like the one that befell the Blue Parrot will keep happening anywhere the drug war has touched.

I don’t want to hear that legalizing drugs will just cause the cartels to make money somewhere else. The revenue is non-trivial. Even before legalization hit, the RAND Corporation and the Mexican Institute of Competitiveness estimated that almost 30% of cartel revenue (not profit) came from cannabis. With legalization, we’re already seeing cannabis seizures drop:

In the Border Patrol’s San Diego sector, marijuana seizures fell to 8,158 pounds in fiscal 2015, an 88 percent drop compared to a decade-high of 68,825 pounds seized in fiscal 2011…As marijuana seizures have declined, other drugs including heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine are skyrocketing at the border. Traffickers are capitalizing on the growing opiate epidemic, as well as their ability to cheaply produce enormous amounts of pure meth from Chinese precursor chemicals in Mexican “superlabs.”

It’s not just along the California border. According to the US Border Patrol, cannabis is just not showing up at numbers it used to be anywhere they’re seizing it:

But the amount of one drug — marijuana — seems to have finally fallen. U.S. Border Patrol has been seizing steadily smaller quantities of the drug, from 2.5 million pounds in 2011 to 1.9 million pounds in 2014. Mexico’s army has noted an even steeper decline, confiscating 664 tons of cannabis in 2014, a drop of 32% compared to year before.

The Zetas aren’t super-villains from the 50’s. They know how much money they can make getting certain substances over the border and into the hands of eager consumers. This connects back to parties almost depressingly well. How many people do we all know that expect there to be drugs for them to buy at parties? How many of them honestly give a fuck about whether they’re legal or not? Just think of the thousands of party people who demand farm to table, vegan/vegetarian or some other form of “I don’t consume things made unethically” cuisine, but then proceed to put $200 worth of possibly Peruvian Cocaine up their noses. I really think we should be more concerned about the lives of indigenous people living under cartels than whether our almond milk was sprayed with pesticide before it landed in my smoothie. As a dear friend put it, we couldn’t stop the Orlando mass shooting, but decriminalization/legalization probably would have stopped this shooting.

You need to ask yourself, if this shooting happened at a club on the beach that only Mexicans went to, and had nothing to do with BPM, would you have cared? Would you have even seen it on your news feeds? I’ve spoken to dozens of Clinton supporters over the last 18 months who strongly supported her not legalizing. If the Zetas weren’t able to wholesale pot into every city in America outside of a handful of states, would they be able to buy weapons and commit crime? Of course. But certainly not to the levels that they’ve been able to in the last several years.

Not a lot of people remember this, but over a decade ago, we deported a bunch of MS13 members, trying to break the back of the gang. This backfired so spectacularly that MS-13 chapters cropped up all across Latin America, accelerating its growth from a few thousand members in LA to an international cartel, possessing a massive supply chain and a network that rivals most intelligence services. We trained & funded the 34 commandos that eventually flipped the script & became Los Zetas. Remember them from earlier in the article? Yup, the very same. Our efforts to stop people from doing drugs are directly responsible for this shit. The blood of party people is on American hands.

But don’t think this is anything new. Whether it was Al Capone and the bootleggers profiting from prohibition, the evolution of disco and cocaine, house dealers in the superclubs of the 1990s & 2000s or the flood of adulterated psychoactive substances that find their way into the hundreds of music festivals occurring in North America every year, Americans have partied for decades without agitating for legalization. While the mob did move on to other illegal activities once Prohibition ended, you bet your ass they jumped right back into trafficking once drug prohibition returned in the 20th Century. Until we (whether we do drugs or not) demand decriminalization/legalization and an end to the DEA/ATF/FBI/CIA’s fuckery south of our border, we should expect things like this to keep happening. Some people are fine with throwing up our hands, giving up and only partying/consuming illegal drugs made within our national  borders, but that still resigns millions of our fellow citizens to a fate of incarceration, underemployment and a life controlled by the scarlet letter of conviction. People demand the ability to modulate the contents of our minds. We should allow them to, and join them in ensuring they can, legally…if only to ensure a horrific attack like this one never happens again.
