I have spent many hours in the archives looking at the evidence brought in trials that convicted some of the most wicked evil people who ever lived. The evidence was hard fought over. Lawyers argued back and forth. Massive amounts of money was involved and officials were corrupted. It took fifty years to expose and convict the Tobacco Mafia and their methods. In the 1990s the various states put their top law enforcement officers against one of the largest organized crime operations ever. Court orders forced the Tobacco Racketeers to produce their file cabinets of secret memos, letters, notes, emails, canceled checks and plans. Earlier the Tobacco Mafia agreed to settle to dodge a worse outcome in court trials, and part of the settlement was they were required to post their files and documents on the internet so America could see the full 50 year history of a crime spree that killed tens of millions of American.
With many millions of documents it can be confusing to try to understand a story involving so many conspirators and so many activities. This blog attempts to simplify by digging out key documents which illustrate the creation of the TEA PARTY MOVEMENT by Tobacco Racketeers and their paid henchmen.
Here is an example of how long this has been in the works... in 1982 a public relation contractor presented a plan for a mock "Boston Tea Party" including characters wearing historical costumes to foster a tax revolt for the benefit of tobacco sales -- lower cigarette taxes lead to increased sales.

The blog will attempt to explain what ever happened to that plan, now after 30 years of implementation have progressed. You will be shown the budgets that paid millions upon millions of dollars into these deceptive schemes.
