Big Pharma Cannabis Distributors Linked to Hitler’s Nazi Germany

originally published November 13, 2019, by M. Phillip Hall

Tilray is a global medical cannabis supply company with 169 distribution centers in 84 Canadian cities (1). Tilray entered into an alliance with Big Pharma, Novartis, to distribute medical cannabis world-wide and now has distribution centers in Ireland, Germany, Australia, Brazil, and South Africa (2)(3)(4).

The Bergier Commission, formed in 1996 in the wake of revelations that Swiss banks tried to conceal bank accounts of Holocaust victims, was created to investigate collaborations between the Swiss and Hitler’s Germany. The commission’s report indicated that there was widespread cooperation between Switzerland and Nazi Germany with the primary motive being profit. The political and business arrangements with Hitler’s regime helped the Nazi war effort. In 1933 for example, Ciba’s branch in Berlin let go its Jewish board of directors and replaced them with “Aryan” Germans. Among the 100 companies examined were the Basel-based chemical companies Ciba and Sandoz, which have since merged to form Novartis, and Hoffmann-LaRoche, now known as Roche Holding, that operated branch plants in Germany just across the Swiss border opposite to Basel (5).

Novartis was created in 1996 through a merger of Ciba-Geigy and Sandoz. Novartis and its predecessor companies trace their roots back more than 250 years (6). Sandoz can trace its origins to a small chemical company in Basel, Switzerland, that in 1886 was called Kern and Sandoz (7). A Swiss chemist at the Sandoz Corporation named Albert Hoffman who in 1938 synthesized lysergic acid diethalyamide, or LSD for short. Sandoz supplied LSD to the “Psilocybin Project” on mind control at Harvard University lead by George Soros LSD/Marijuana clinical psychologist Dr. Timothy Leary (8)(9).

One of the commission reports focused on slave labor, concluding that Roche and other Swiss companies used such labor at their German sites. Many companies have since admitted that slave labor had been used at their German sites and have paid compensation. Novartis and Roche contributed to the $1.25 billion settlement in 1998 that banks organized to settle the Holocaust account claims. The directors of these Swiss companies were very well aware of what was going on at the time, and had knowledge of the slave laborers and knew that some laborers died as a result of the conditions in which they were held. In a company statement, Novartis stated that its predecessor companies made decisions that could be considered “ethically and morally dubious when viewed from today’s perspective (10)(11).”

Swiss chemical companies also knew that their products were being used for medical experiments carried out on prisoners of war and on concentration camp inmates. Roche, for example, actually participated in research studies conducted by the German Navy, while Sandoz was aware of the research studies carried out on epileptic patients murdered by the Nazis (11). Ciba knew that its products were being employed in experiments conducted on young women, who were contaminated with various infections and who were exposed to disinfectant materials in order to test the effectiveness of those materials. Some of these victims either died in the course of the experiments, while others were executed at a later stage (11)(12).

The Soros Marijuana Movement In Canada

originally published November 13, 2019, by M. Phillip Hall

The current website for Cannabis Rights Coalition, a leader in marijuana activism in Canada, does not reveal the financial backers of this cannabis activist group (1). A historical archive search of the website revealed the sponsors (2)(3). Most are tied to the US marijuana and drug legalization movement financed by George Soros and Tides Foundation. They include organizations made up of lawyers and academics whose members are alt-left and anti-Trump. Some have origins in the Communist Movement in Canada, anti-pipeline and anti-oil activism, environmental activism, and campaigns to “defeat Harper.” They support Justin Trudeau and the Liberals and “Big Pharma”, with ties to Hitler’s Germany. Here is a background summary of some of their supporters:

1. BC Civil Liberties Association (BCCLA): The British Columbia Civil Liberties Association promotes civil liberties and human rights through litigation, lobbying and social media. It is Canada’s oldest civil liberties association (4). Originally in 1938, it was called the VCLU (Vancouver Civil Liberties Union) and it emerged as a branch from the Canadian Civil Liberties Union in Montreal, Quebec. These civil liberties unions formed in opposition to Quebec Premier Maurice Duplessiis, a conservative premier who strongly rejected the communist movement in Canada (5).

The VCLU took up a number of causes: free speech rights of communists; defending individuals from Quebec’s infamous “Padlock Law,” which allowed police to confiscate property being used for spreading communist propaganda (6); restrictive immigration legislation; cold-war paranoia about communist infiltration; “Gastown Riots” of 1971 over marijuana legalization; and the treatment and protection of a domestic terrorist group called the “Sons of Freedom,” that were involved in 1100 arsons and bombing between 1923-1962. They also opposed the “Provincial Heroin Treatment Act” which would detain drug addicts and compel them to seek treatment (7). Members tended to be lawyers and academics, primarily left-liberals or social democrats. However, it was infiltrated by the Canadian Communist Movement and some members leaned very far left. In 1962 it became the BCCLA.

Kirk Tousaw, a Vancouver lawyer, serves on the Board of Directors for BC Civil Liberties Association. He is also founding Board member of the Sensible BC Society and serves on the Board of Directors for NORML Canada (8). All of these associations are offshoots of their US counterparts. NORML (National Organization for the Reform of Cannabis Laws) along with George Soros’ Drug Policy Alliance and Marijuana Policy Project (MPP) (founded by Rob Kamia formerly from NORML, and funded by billionaire Peter Lewis), are the chief spinmeisters for America’s normalization of drug use, the decriminalization of all drugs, and they endorse the implementation of “safe injection sites (9)(10)(11)(12)(13)(14)”.

Kirk Tousaw also provides legal counsel to Canopy Growth Corporation, the world’s largest cannabis company (15)(16) that just recently secured the right to buy Acreage Holdings in order to position itself as a prime mover in the U.S. legal marijuana market in a deal valued at $3.4 billion. The deal, the first between two cannabis companies on either side of the U.S.-Canada border, gives Canopy the right to acquire 100 percent of New York-based Acreage when marijuana is legalized on a federal level by the U.S. government (17). Sitting on the Board for Acreage Holdings is former Prime Minister of Canada Brian Mulroney

“Given the great social experiment going on in Canada… I thought it was important that Canada articulate a leadership position (in the legalization of Marijuana) and I think that the leadership position that was staked in this important area by the Government of Canada (Justin Trudeau) is a good one (18)(19).”

Kirk Tousaw was opposed to Stephen Harper and his conservative views on the legalization of marijuana and not only endorsed Justin Trudeau, he also participated in a conference organized and funded by Liberal Party of Canada (20)(21)(22)(23). Lisa Kerr, a civil rights lawyer and Trudeau Foundation Scholar, has also done extensive work with the BC Civil Liberties Association (24)(25)(26).

The BC Civil Liberties Association is funded by George Soros’ Tides Canada Foundation, which has funded much of the Canadian anti-pipeline activism (27)(28). The BCCLA is also funded by The Law Foundation of BC (29), and includes members such as environmental activist, anti-pipeline, UNPA supporter David Suzuki, and Quebec regime (Desmarais family) reporter Andrew Coyne (30)(31)(32). The BC Civil Liberties Association is also financed by Ruth and Henry Goodman Fund for Social and Ecological Justice (33) that endorse initiatives against oil, pipelines, and national & regional campaigns to defeat the Harper Conservative Government in 2015 (34).

The US counterpart to the BCCLA is the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union), which is financed by George Soros. Soros gives a great deal of money to the ACLU which funds studies and then tells people how they’re supposed to be thinking; giving minorities permission to destroy their brains with drugs is not social justice nor is advocating that racism can be solved by marijuana legalization. This merely destroys the rights of minorities who choose not to use drugs while empowering drug users and drug dealers (35). BCCLA has endorsed several ACLU initiatives, collaborated on projects with the ACLU, and hosted events in honour of ACLU directors (36)(37)(38)(39).

Dana Larson is a marijuana rights activist and editor of Cannabis Culture magazine with publisher Marc Emery. In 2008, he was the federal NDP candidate for the riding of West Vancouver but was forced to resign after videos surfaced which showed him taking LSD and smoking marijuana (40). He also organizes the annual 4/20 event in Vancouver where taxpayers were on the hook for over half a million in damages at local rallies (41). Dana Larsen was arrested in 2016 in Calgary during his Overgrow Canada Tour, a cross-country mission to give out a 2.3 million free cannabis seeds to encourage growing as a form of civil disobedience (42)(43). This was followed by a 5 million cannabis seed giveaway in 2017 (44).

2. Sensible BC Society: Kirk Tousaw and Dana Larson are founding board members of Sensible BC Society, a group which is working to decriminalize cannabis possession in BC through a referendum on the Sensible Policing Act (45). The Sensible Policing Act would amend the BC Police Act, to redirect all BC police (municipal and RCMP) from spending time and resources on searches, seizures or arrests in cases of cannabis possession (46). Kirk Tousaw drafted the Sensible Policing Act, a recent ballot initiative in BC that required 400,000 signatures to pass (47). A similar campaign for Initiative 502, south of the border, raised and spent more than $5 million, and had help from billionaires Peter Lewis (who gave $1.5 million) and Drug Policy Action, a group financed by George Soros (it gave $1.3 million) (48).

Sensible BC is also involved in conferences with CSSDP (Canadian Students for a Sensible Drug Policy) run by Lisa Campbell and funded by Open Society (49). Lisa Campbell is a long time devotee of George Soros’s Open Society. The US counterpart to CSSDP is SSDP (Students for Sensible Drug Policy) with several international chapters (50). SSDP is also funded by the Open Society Foundation (51).

I joined the international drug policy network Youth RISE and eventually became outreach director for Canadian Students for Sensible Drug Policy, where I got to take part in discussions on progressive drug policy at the United Nations, thanks to the support of George Soros Open Society Foundation (52).

3. Dads for Marijuana International: This is an organization that is part of Moms and Dads for Marijuana International sponsored by billionaires George Soros and Peter Lewis (53)(54)(55).

4. Time4Hemp: Time4Hemp made its TV debut in 1991 and has since evolved into a 5-days a week live television broadcast that is focused on ending prohibition on industrial hemp and medical marijuana. Casper Leitch, also known as “The Father of Marijuana Television” founded the organization (56). Casper Leitch is pictured in a 1991 event that helped to facilitate the merger between the two “green movements”, the Cannabis Movement with Earth Day.

Time4Hemp features writers, politicians, doctors, scientists, and global activists such as Kasia Malinowska from the Open Society Foundation. Past guests on the series include: Keith Stroup (founder of NORML), David Boaz (Founder of the CATO Institute funded by the Koch brothers and George Soros), Kevin Zeese (Co-founder of the Soros’ funded Drug Policy Foundation), Ethan Nadelmann (Founder of the Soros’ funded Drug Policy Alliance), Marc Emery (founder of Cannabis Culture Magazine), and George Soros’ Marijuana and LSD guru Harvard Professor Dr. Timothy Leary (57)(58)(59)(60)(61).

5. The BC Compassion Club: On their website, The BC Compassion Club lists all their funders (62): Tides Canada Foundation (funded by George Soros); Kirk Tousaw (REFER to #1 & #2 above: Linked to organizations funded by George Soros)(63); MILLS, an advocate for Sustainable development and Green Initiatives (64); the Social Venture Institute (65), consisting of business leaders and social entrepreneurs such as Drummond Pike, chair and founder of the US Tides Foundation and Joel Solomon, Vice-Chair of Tides Canada Foundation (66); and Vancity Credit Union, who has partnered with Frank Giustra (67) on several outreach initiatives and has also partnered with Tides Foundation to build the “Social Economy”, a Marxist movement designed to usher in a one world government (68).

6. National: National is owned by Enterprise Holdings (69), who have joined the leftist ThinkProgress, which is funded by George Soros’ Center for American Progress, #BoycottNRA movement (70). This boycott is against the U.S. gun rights advocacy group National Rifle Association (NRA) and its business affiliates (71). The boycott extended to Canada where Mountain Equipment Co-op and the Running Room cut supplier relationships with Vista Outdoor (72).  

7. MCRCI: Cannabis isn’t (yet) sold at pharmacies in Canada. Resource centers such as MCRCI (Medical Cannabis Resource Center Inc.) assist patients in finding doctors and obtaining medical cannabis (73)(74)(75). MCRCI is owned by Tilray, a global medical cannabis supply company with 169 distribution centers in 84 Canadian cities (76). Tilray entered into an alliance with Big Pharma, Novartis, to distribute medical cannabis world-wide and now has distribution centers in Ireland, Germany, Australia, Brazil, and South Africa (77)(78)(79).

Trump Opposed to UN’s “New World Order” International Criminal Court

The International Criminal Court has been instrumental in implementing the New World Order. Canada has lead the charge and President Donald Trump wants to stand in the way.

Image result for trump criminal court

originally published November 12, 2019, by M. Phillip Hall

In July 1987, over 200 experts from Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, other Commonwealth countries, the United States, Europe, and Israel gathered at the Inns of Court in London at the “Society for the Reform of Criminal Law ”(ISRCL) to discuss criminal law reform and the criminal justice system (1). During the London conference, the participants analyzed the possible outcomes of movements for criminal law reform which had developed in their respective countries. They examined the present need for reform, the social context for reform, and how reforms should be accomplished.

At the conclusion of the conference, the participants called for the establishment of an international body to bring together those actively working for the improvement of the criminal law and the administration of criminal justice. A number of the participants took up that challenge and founded the ISRCL in January, 1988 (2). John W. Conroy, a Vancouver lawyer and cannabis rights litigator and activist (3)(4) is listed as director of ISRCL since as early as 1988 (5), and the first members of this society are found in the following links: (6)(7).

The ISRCL is a non-profit charitable association incorporated under the laws of Canada. The founders were of the view that the ISRCL must retain its independence of thought and action from government.  Accordingly, ISRCL’s key activities and its member services are primarily funded by an annual membership levy and donations. The ISRCL does, however, solicit financial assistance for specific conferences, seminars, or projects from government departments, agencies, law foundations, and other foundations. 

Funding for specific projects has been obtained from The British Council, the Departments of Justice of Canada and New Zealand, The Home Office, the Attorney General’s Department of Australia, the Victoria Law Foundation, the Law Foundation of British Columbia, the Law Foundation of Nova Scotia, and the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA). The Law Reform Commission of Canada, the Correctional Service of Canada, and the British Columbia Corrections Branch have also provided important material and financial assistance in the past (8).

In February 1991, the ISRCL signed an agreement with Simon Fraser University and the University of British Columbia to establish the International Centre for Criminal Law Reform and Criminal Justice Policy in Vancouver, Canada. The ICCLR was incorporated in 1992 as a society with its own Board of Directors and became an associate of the United Nations. In July 1995, an agreement was signed with the United Nations to formally affiliate the ICCLR as an international institute of the United Nations. The ICCLR supports the activities of the ISRCL, and both support the UN Sustainable Development Goals (9).

The International Centre for Criminal Law Reform (ICCLR) conducts research and policy analysis and provides consultation services relating to the fields of international criminal law. Since 1992, ICCLR has been actively committed to supporting global efforts in the creation of a permanent International Criminal Court (ICC). In 1993, ICCLR organized and sponsored The International Meeting of Experts on the Establishment of an International Criminal Court, with more than seventy leading criminal and international law experts from thirty countries converging on Vancouver. The Government of Canada provided financial support for this project through the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade and the Department of Justice (Jean Chretien)(10). Both the ISRCL under John Conroy and the ICCLR were also integral partners in it’s formation (11)(12).

On July 1, 2002, the International Criminal Court (ICC) was created as the first permanent international court capable of enforcing the web of international laws that have been designed over the last 74 years since the birth of the United Nations (13)(14). Why is this of importance? A country party to the ICC is obligated to cooperate and to submit their judicial processes to this international criminal court which has external oversight. This has serious implications for sovereignty. The ICC, is a supranational tribunal, and has basically consolidated the legality of the “International Order”. After all, a world government needs a world court. Although it is being downplayed, the adoption of a permanent world court is a significant advance toward a one world government the world has ever witnessed (15).

Under President Donald Trump’s administration, the US Government has stated that it will not cooperate with the ICC and has gone as far as to threaten retaliatory steps against the ICC staff and member countries should this international court investigate US or other allied country citizens (e.g. Israel). In March of 2019, US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo announced that the United States would impose Visa bans on ICC officials involved in the courts’ potential investigation of US citizens for alleged crimes in Afghanistan. In 2018, President Trump addressed the UN General Assembly stating:

The United States will provide no support or recognition to the International Criminal Court (ICC). As far as America is concerned the ICC has no jurisdiction, no legitimacy, and no authority (16).

Canada signed this agreement under the Liberal Jean Chretien government on December 18, 1998. On June 29, 2000, Canada enacted the Crimes Against Humanity and War Crimes Act, becoming the first country in the world to adopt this legislation which was ratified on July 7, 2000. It is obvious that Canada is playing an integral role in the implementation of a New World Order. There is the possibility for ISIS foreign fighters captured in Syria to be tried under the International Criminal Court (ICC), but do nations want to give the ICC such authority thereby setting precedent for future criminal convictions of their own citizens (17)?

The Fellegi Report (1996) recommended long-term strategies for policy development, the need to promote interdepartmental networks within government, and recommended that the Privy Council Office (PCO) be the focal point for this “Whole of Government” approach. (FYI: At the same time, Tony Blairs Labour Party in the UK wrote the “White Paper” making similar recommendations) https://www.researchgate.net/publication/319064172_9_Policy_Analysis_in_the_Federal_Government_Building_the_Forward-_Looking_Policy_Research_Capacity
  • As a result, in 1996 the government launched PRI (Policy Research Initiative) as a joint effort between the PCO Clerk (Jocelyne Bourgon) and Deputy Ministers of different governmental departments to look at government policy development.
  • Served in dept. of Industry, cabinet secretary for Federal-Provincial Relations (later merges with PCO) president of CIDA, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jocelyne_Bourgon
  • When she as Deputy Minister of Transport Canada she helped organize the Canada-Free Trade, lead constitutional negotiations, helped prepare reform that lead to the privatization of our rail and airports. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jocelyne_Bourgon
  • Leads the “New Synthesis Project” a program that aspires to transform the way people think about the role of government in the post-industrial era. A New Synthesis in Public Administration sets out a theoretical framework that takes this new reality into account. It reveals how government forms part of a co-evolving system between people and society.

This project was written and financed by PGI (Public Governance International) a corporation dedicated to helping transform governmental services to meet the global needs of the 21st century. Mrs. Bourgon is the founding President of PGI http://www.pgionline.com/ https://web.archive.org/web/20120907105534/http:/nsworld.org/sites/nsworld.org/files/New_Frontiers_of_Public_Administration.pdf

We have not heard from former clerks of the Privy Council, like Jocelyne Bourgon or Mel Cappe, who could tell us what the Privy Council knew and when it knew, and what directions they gave. Whether for instance, did an official from the Federal-Provincial Relations Office of the PCO call Chuck Guité in 1995 and instruct him to bend the rules, if necessary, in the government’s advertising program? We would like to hear them testify to that question.”

  • Workers Versus Austerity the modern state apparatus: In the summer of 2009, two figures from that eras Liberal administration former top bureaucrat Jocelyne Bourgon and former cabinet minister Marcel Massé flew across the Atlantic and met with leading British Conservatives including Philip Hammond, the shadow chief secretary to the Treasury. We are not privy to the discussions which took place at these meetings. But it might not be a coincidence that the Conservatives in Britain, now in office, have embarked upon a serious austerity offensive that has many similarities with Canada s experience in the 1990s. One of the principle mechanisms used by the Liberals to slash spending was to change the rules by which tax money was shipped out to the provinces. The effect was to reduce by billions of dollars the amount of money given to the provinces and this was critical, because it is the provinces in Canada which fund health care, education and social assistance. These central components of the welfare state, while delivered provincially, are extremely dependent on transfer payments from the senior level of government. To deal with debts accumulated during years of Tory rule, the federal liberals had redefined the way in which transfer payments were to be delivered to the provinces, the net effect of which would be to reduce those payments by billions. Chart 1 (Department of Finance Canada 2010) captures this starkly. From until, transfer payments stagnated at around the thirty five billion dollar mark, in fact a long slow cut in per capita terms. But from until, transfer payments plunged by seven billion dollars, and then by another two billion dollars between and This is the picture of the austerity measures behind the construction of the neoliberal state, one aspect of which was the threatened doubling of tuition fees.” http://docplayer.net/51287077-Workers-versus-austerity-the-origins-of-ontario-s-days-of-action.html
