Anti-Smokers Gloat Over UN Smoking Ban

The Wall Street and CIA-connected anti-smoking conspirators installed their lackeys in positions of power in countries around the world, to rubber-stamp their WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control. This ensured that, by the time any so-called "discussion" arose, it was all over except for the bloodsuckers gloating over how they "won fair and square." This is what they've done to Americans for decades. This is the fraudulent "U.S.-style democracy" that our soldiers are commanded to die for! And they wonder why the world isn't grateful! (First global smoking ban to come into effect. By Richard Waddington, Reuters, Dec. 1, 2004.) Neen Hunt of the Lasker Foundation is a former Chief Operating Officer of United Nations Association - USA.

The United Nations and Anti-Smoking By Assassination

The World Health Organization awarded its prize for best anti-smoking and nutrition programs to Al-Manar/Hizbollah television in Lebanon. The leadership of this organization has effectively been selected by Mossad assassination squads! (World Health Organization (WHO) awards prize to Al-Manar/Hizbollah. World Jewish Congress, Jan. 11, 2005; 'Mossad Fiasco' in New Zealand should ring alarm bells. By Ed Blanche. The Beirut Daily Star, Jul. 24, 2004.)

Ted Turner's Billions Helped Corrupt the United Nations

"Ted Turner's United Nations Foundation: Making the UN a Pawn for Tax-Exempt Special Interests," by Cliff Kincaid. Capital Research Center Foundation Watch, Mar 1999. Supposedly, the United Nations is strictly forbidden by its charter from accepting donations that are not from member countries. At least, that's why they said they couldn't accept Ted Turner's money to pay the US's dues. But UN Secretary General Kofi Annan happily bent the rules to accept Turner's money for anti-smoking purposes. He created a special "Fund for International Partnerships," reporting directly to himself, to funnel the money. "For example, a 1998 grant made jointly to WHO and UNICEF supports their efforts to promote 'long-term strategies' to ensure 'tobacco-free children and youth.' No doubt the US tobacco control movement is going global. Once again, children are the excuse for new taxes and regulations on the tobacco industry. The UN Foundation claims 'this project is the single largest grant ever made to prevent and discourage international tobacco use among children and adolescents." Best of all, the 10 annual installments of $100 million in Time-Warner stocks will probably save his heirs $100 million in estate taxes.

CNN Smoking Ban Memo

Philip Morris memo regarding former CNN anchorperson Gwenn Scott and Ted Turner's 1987 smoking ban at CNN. "During discussions to renew her contract, Turner demanded that she either give up smoking or leave the network. Since she was unwilling to comply with the smoking directive, she is now seeking other employment. According to Ms. Scott, Turner's anti-smoking policy is used to discriminate against certain employees while others are allowed to smoke freely... She went on to mention that it is common knowledge that Turner sits in his office and smokes marijuana and that the reason he decided to 'crackdown' on smoking is due to the demands of his current girlfriend" [Jane Fonda]. (Alan R. Miller to Guy L. Smith. Philip Morris USA, Interoffice Memo, Jul. 17, 1987.)

Wirth Congressional bio / US Congress

Wirth's involvement in anti-smoking dates from his days in the office of HEW Secretary Wilbur Cohen as a White House Fellow from 1967-68, when he attended the meetings of the Joint Committee on Tobacco and Health. (William Kloepfer Jr., Tobacco Institute Vice President of Public Relations, memorandum to Henry Ramm, April 8, 1970.) His subsequent appointments (Deputy Assistant Secretary of Eduation 1969-70) and election as Democratic US Representative (1974-87) and Senator from Colorado until 1993, were were no doubt helped by Lasker Syndicate connections.

In 1987, Wirth was a co-sponsor of the Hatch Bill, S. 51, to prohibit smoking in public conveyances. (Tobacco Institute Federal Relations Report, May 29, 1987.)
