If you missed our first interview, here it is,
Note before starting: John talked about Dave McGowan’s book on the Laurel Canyon drug/music scene. Here is the website to read it online for free,
On the same website, I can also highly recommend Dave’s book, Wagging the Moondoggie.
I am honored to have Mr. John Potash on the show today, who has done some of the best journalism of the 21st century, if its definition is to expose the truth about the lies of empire.
John Potash has been featured on C-Span’s American History TV, A&E, The Reelz Channel, The Real News Network, and RT television networks. He has also been featured on hundreds of radio programs in the U.S, England and New Zealand, including Coast to Coast AM. He has published articles in Z magazine, Covert Action Quarterly, The Baltimore Chronicle, Rock Creek Free Press, and The Free Press. He has worked counseling people with mental health problems and addictions for over 25 years.
In May 2015, Potash released his book: Drugs as Weapons Against Us: The CIA’s Murderous Targeting of SDS, Panthers, Hendrix, Lennon, Cobain, Tupac and other Activists. Potash completed graduate studies at Columbia University. He published his first book, The FBI War on Tupac Shakur and Black Leaders, in 2007.
Today’s interview will be about John’s second book, which focuses on the CIA as the global leader in addicting the 99% – people like you and me – to drugs.
I can’t say enough about John’s Drugs as a Weapon against Us book. His years of research and synthesis show just how psychopathic and paranoid the US’s elite rulers are. It is frightening to contemplate how organized and committed these mentally ill people are and the lengths they go to, in order to destroy any possible disagreement to their global capitalist stranglehold on the citizens, as well as all levels of institutions, governance and the media.
I think what make’s John’s fine book so compelling is all the minute details he shows about the genocidal use of drugs to destroy minorities and the poor, promoting and addicting musicians to glorify drug use among the 99%, and if these stars promote socialist ideals, the CIA then kills them. – all over the world. His detailed proof of just how pathological our owners really are, allowed me to step back from the nitty-gritty, down and dirty of the leaves on his trees, so I could really look at the whole global forest, and for this perspective, I am deeply thankful.
I cannot overestimate how important it is for all free thinkers and freedom lovers to read John’s FBI War on Tupac Shakurbook. It’s not that expensive, but if money is issue, then ask your local library, school, college, university or place of worship to get it, so many others can share its wealth of discovery and truth telling. Failing that, several friends can pool their money to buy it. Using it in a book club would make for fascinating discussion as well.
Not a reader? There is the DVD below too, which is even less money! Libraries stock them too!

In honor of three musicians who were killed by the CIA/FBI, along with millions of others who have fought and continue to demand social justice and socialism for the 99%, here are their songs from my collection. The oligarchs keep exterminating many more millions every year at home and around the world, but they can’t snuff out ideals, dreams and aspirations. The global struggle will never stop.
Tupac Shakur: White Man’z World
Bob Marley: Redemption Song
John Lennon: Imagine
The battle against the Big Lie killing the world will not be won by you just reading this article. It will be won when you pass it on to at least 2 other people, requesting they do the same.
