"The opium men and railroad and shipping tycoons followed the route tauted by Horace Greeley whose book had provided an imaginary ride on the train ten years before the completion of the first Transcontinental Railway titled, An Overland Journey From New York To San Francisco in the Summer of 1859. Jefferson Davis, a hero of the U.S.-Mexican War, had personally surveyed the Southern route across the Gadsden Purchase, a route that could have easily been diverted to William Walker's intended annexed region in Baja that was supported by President Franklin Pierce, an ancestor of Barbara Pierce Bush. Jefferson Davis was a close friend to Boston's opium kingpin, Caleb Cushing who negotiated the first U.S.-Chinese trade agreements. It was at Feniuel Hall near Caleb Cushing's Trinity Church at the site of the Boston Massacre that Andrew Jackson delivered his cheered speech defending slavery and where Frederick Douglas felt he must speak against it as Gary Webb would speak against the re-enslaving of American minorities with the inevitable chemical dependency brought on with the help of CIA imported drugs. Horace Greeley paid the bond releasing Jefferson Davis from prison after the Civil War and Greeley's was the first name listed on the official bond record," said Von Albertson adding..."Go west young men! On the rails that my newspapers promoted and bring back the Chinese booty as you read my papers for the next big thing!"
Von Albertson also noted that the transcontinental railroad would cut months off of the shipment of their opium supplies by sea from the Orient. "The U.S. Navy guaranteed safe passage of their cargoes to San Francisco or San Diego, the proposed Southern terminus of the Southern transcontinental route and headquarters of the U.S. Marines where Smedley Butler trained. This is precisely why the U.S. Navy, like no other branch of the military, enjoys such a prominent place in the inner workings of the U.S. intelligence community and National Security Agency or NSA," said Von Albertson.

the 2000 exclusion of
Nader from the Bush/Gore debate.
Von Albertson noted that the Presidential Debate Commission which excluded him from the 2000 Presidential debate between Bush and Gore is headed by Frank Fahrenhaupf the 73 year old lawyer, chairman of the Republican National Committee from 1983-1989 during the Reagan-Bush era and current CEO of the American Gaming Association (AGA). "'Mr. Casino' and his buddies would like to turn the entire U.S. into a giant casino and parking lot. One big crap shoot. Which when you look at what happened to Wall Street in 2008, or to the waters downstream from the Koch brother's Georgia Pacific plants or downwind of their petrochemical refineries....is what it has become," said one Nader supporter.
