“This work is an analysis of the power relations between Transnational Organized Crime (TOC) and the apex trafficking States of the Dominican Republic, Suriname, Venezuela, French Guiana, Martinique and Guadeloupe in the second decade of the 21st Century. This analysis focuses on the business models of TOC groups involved in these apex trafficking states of the Caribbean Basin, their trafficking methodology and the response of the State in their war on drugs to the operational presence of these TOC groups. What is apparent is the inability, the complicity and the unwillingness of the ruling elites and the agents of the State to grapple with the threat posed by TOC to these apex trafficking States. The war on drugs is then a lie, an instrument of power to effect social control in favour of the ruling oligarchs and a geopolitical instrument which indicates your subservience to the USA and the rest of the North Atlantic. The war on drugs is then an instrument to effect white power/hegemony over the neo-colonial world, the South. In these States studied the reality of the North Atlantic’s war on drugs being joined at the head with TOC, hence inseparable, is affirmed with evidence, for as you beget the war on drugs TOC exploits your geographic position to transship drugs to the North Atlantic, but you are unable to resist materially and at the level of the idea, given your state of economic and mental subservience arsing from white supremacist colonial/neo-colonial imperial domination. Transnational Organized Crime then in these States have already or are aggressively moving to capture the State. The wages of embracing the white supremacist war on drugs is TOC exerting hegemony over our social order.”
Covid-19 in 2020 has proven to be a boon to Transnational Organized Crime (TOC) and drug trafficking in the Caribbean basin. As the police of the region are now enforcing social control to supposedly diminish the impact of the pandemic TOC is thriving and even further changing the terrain of the Game in the region. In T&T on June 30, 2020 the new order presented itself and since then no matter even though there have been 5 attempts to restart the tit for tat killings in Gangland there is no response. What we now have are focused eliminations deepening the hegemony of the new order and the mainstream conventional logic of Gangland is daily falsified and in response mainstream logic becomes even more divorced from reality on the ground in the GAME. A reputed gang leader died, there was the expected prediction of war to fill the void created but where is the war? There is succession not war. A T&T medical ganja entrepreneur stated in the Daily Express that some T&T$ 1 billion in ganja was illegally imported into T&T each year, remember you pay for this ganja in US$. Under Covid-19 the ganja wars ceased, supply ramped up and the new order is in control. Pax Mexicana! Now the latest horse to ride is ponzi scheme. Nobody in the Game who intends to stay alive in the Game uses a ponzi scheme to wash the proceeds of the Game. A ponzi scheme is designed to collapse and those running the hustle disappear with the money. How can you wash your dirty money sustainably in a scheme that cannot funnel your money into the financial system? How can you hand over your money that you expect to get back washed, less commission 10-20% on the TT Dollar, by handing it to an organization that has it in garbage bags, desk draws, on the floor, under the bed, all over the place? In the GAME you hand it to legal financial institutions who funnel it into the legal financial system, to hand it to the decent and respectable outstanding citizens. Read the FINCEN files. As per usual the security apparatus and the media continue to peddle a discourse of the dumb criminals when those in the GAME are perpetually ahead of all those who love to hear and see themselves in the media with grandiose dreams of being the Bolsonaro of T&T. Under the Covid-19 game of social control and the usual propaganda of the security apparatus of the State TOC is thriving and even more powerful.
