    Things go better with Coke

  2. Cogito says:

    They must have had a few bucks left from what they stole for the oil-for-food program.

  3. The Clintidote says:

    That’s Ofailure’s stash, for his next job – stupidly trying to control the entire world.

  4. Kim Bailey says:

    The UN is controlled and dominated by 70 African countries
    most of these parasites are on US welfare and cocaine is their drug of choice.

  5. Beaker says:

    Drug importation is a government protected industry. The reason gangs have not been eliminated is to provide plausible deniability.

  6. joey_2x says:

    That answers a lot of questions I had about the UN

  7. Jim in Houston says:

    This is a surprise – WHY?

  8. John Galt says:

    Now the coke is tainted. It’s been in the sewer.

  9. dude says:

    Alex Jones was right!!

    1. sylvie says:

      LOL, and so he is! Anyone thinking that it was sent as a joke, you are clueless on the cost of cocaine! I think its time to walk away from the U.N. Our money has gone to waste in this screwed up clearinghouse for terrorists. Let Angelina fund it, America needs to feed THEIR children at this time. America needs to re-develop THEIR own country. America needs to turn things around here, or we will be of no help in the future to ANY other country. Very little if any ends up in the hand of the starving through this agency. They do not prevent or ease people out of wars, they instigate them continuously. DOWN WITH THE U.N.!!!!!! They need to be disbanded, along with the CFR!!!!

      1. Ronald McDonald says:

        The UN is a blight on New York City and a bonanza of graft and corruption. UN employees pay zero tax, and rack up unpaid parking tickets while crowding New York City with ridiculous security details. They have their own post office which freeloads delivery through the US Postal Service. They use US taxpayer money to fund their lavish lifestyles, plus awesomely corrupt schemes involving oil and countless yet undiscovered programs. Of course they need 30 pounds of coke – they work very hard in there coming up with ways to fleece the US taxpayer. They deserve to be defunded by the US taxpayer.

        2. Cory says:

          Wow. You are so misinformed. The UN bills out to every participating country and operates much like an International nonprofit. Actually, the US is one of the lowest contributors relative to it’s size. Stop watching Fox so much.

          1. David Pittelli says:

            Actually, you are misinformed. Try a Google search. You will find from many sources that the United States pays 22% of the UN’s budget, which is far more than the US’s share of world GDP or world population.

      2. gigi aldred says:

        yes it did not find it’s way there by accident

    2. John Rory Jr. says:

      Why is this news?

      Isn’t it obvious that the United Nations uses massive amounts to cocaine to make their decisions?

      I’m surprised that’s all they “found”.

      1. NW LAdy says:

        Maybe they are re-enacting the scene from Scarface where he says “Say hello to my little friend” , it could have been Drug Cartel day! I mean aren’t they a big employer in South America?

        Do you think that is why our government gave them 32 billion dollars?

      2. Mike Saboro says:

        Awesome! Helps explain all the decisions going on at the UN. A few snorts before voting on major world decisions.

      3. Mike Saboro says:

        Cavier and Coke. Nothing to see here, move along.

        1. notalib says:

          Thumbs up–both responses.

      4. Spirit of 1776 says:

        Better you don’t know, nor the public. We don’t need to know about the government and other governments distributing drugs, we don’t need to know that America “the beacon’ of freedom has the most incarcerated persons per capita in the world. You are free – to get a license and permission – oh wait freedom isnt a privilige. Not news worthy – or would you rather everything be done under the table and have a bunch of criminals run your society, enslave you, take you money, imprioson you, humilitate you (tsa), ect. Nothing to see here, move along.

        Wake up do u c he

    3. Karizma says:

      Like we patriotic Americans have been saying for many many years, this just one example. Get US out of the UN. Celebrate the UN Day of Shame every year and find out what we are sick and tired of putting up with. They are trying to overthrow the sovereignty and the constitution of many countries whose heads of state cannot in good conscience sit next to despots and tyrants or sign agreements that will cost their people too much.

    4. Dan says:

      It’s for the coke bowl they prime themselves with before they make their speeches and decisions, similar to the baby powder/talc bowl that gymnasts use before their performance

    5. aubreyfarmer says:

      The only problem I have ever had with Alex Jones is he doesn’t go far enough. He always stops short of telling the whole truth. I don’t know if his show is meant to send people off in the wrong direction chasing “red herrings” or if he is just afraid of being labeled an anti Semite. But the fact remains that he always tiptoes around and walks on egg shells whenever the evidence points directly at the involvement of the European Jews.
      39). “Use the courts, use the judges, use the constitution
      of the country, use its medical societies and its laws to
      further our ends. Do not stint in your labor in this direction.
      And when you have succeeded you will discover that you can now
      effect your own legislation at will and you can, by careful
      organization, by constant campaigns about the terrors of
      society, by pretense as to your effectiveness, make the
      capitalist himself, by his own appropriation, finance a large
      portion of the quiet Communist conquest of that nation.”
      (Address of the Jew Laventria Beria, The Communist Textbook on
      Psychopolitics, page 8).

      1. ridiculous jones says:

        so basically you’re quoting a communist describing how to spread communist propoganda but you’re only really interested in it because the person who wrote it was jewish? Talk about “red herring” from an anti semite.

      2. Tim Smith says:

        So, if it’s the Jews, would we be talking about a red gefilte fish?

    6. krazy bill says:

      I wonder how they were gonna get it from the UN to Holter’s office at the DOJ ?

  10. C.G. says:

    I wonder if it will be on the news tomorrow, or is it just a footnote? What is going on? Was it mailed from ? via Mexico? Who is the dealer and who bought it. They are trash. The UN is a pirate organization!

    1. lee says:

      i agree the UN is just an organized bunch of thugs.
      someone probably gave someone some confusiing mailing instructions and got the
      work address and the delivery address backwards.
      imagine that. cant even get a coke deal delivered to the right location

      1. joseph humphrey says:


      2. gigialdred says:

        you have hit the nail on the head in every sense of the word

  11. Bullett says:

    Is it any wonder or surprise that this happened?; given the fact that courier (diplomatic) mail is not opened or inspected.

  12. Anon says:

    Who knows what drugs, weapons, or human organs were sent in the UN Diplomatic Pouches over the decades they’ve squatted their demon arises on the East River.

  13. Doc Holiday says:

    We’re haven’ a party! Where’s Hillary & Kate ?

  14. Paul Lehner says:

    Surprised ?? Not one bit. This country needs to get out of this dysfunctional organization, boot these corrupt Ba$tards out, let them set up in China or some cesspool in Africa. Tax Payer money should be stop ASAP and take possession of that prime piece of NY City real estate too.

    1. Bullett says:

      I couldn’t agree with you more on this issue 100%. America could save at the least 3 to 5 billion dollars a year just by dropping out of NATO & the U.N.

    2. Gary says:

      Paul Says It All

  15. mj says:

    what a disaster … it was SUPPOSED to be delivered to congress

    1. Bill Forquer says:

      wrong, it was SUPPOSED to go to the white house

      1. Matthew Smith says:

        wrong, it was supposed to go to me lol?

        1. SMT Dell says:

          None of the above. It was supposed to go to Lindsay Lohan.

      2. Gary Clark says:

        Sure would do a lofort someones campaign fund ,,dont ya think.

        1. Gary Clark says:

          Sorry for the misspelling,,,gor dribble all over my computor,,,,

  16. Mike says:

    The laws only apply to those not in government. There’s a 0% chance that someone gets arrested over this. If they do Holder won’t press charges or will give them amnesty. The ruling class will make sure the peasants learn their place.

    1. stanleycustom says:

      Can’t do anything. Diplomatic immunity. Diplomatic pouch.

      1. Disgusted in Augusta says:

        There are exceptions to diplomatic immunity. The home country of the recipient could disavow the application of immunity for diplomatic or public relations purposes. Holder is probably the weakest link in all of this and the spineless wonders of the State Department come in a close second to our esteemed AG.

        1. Dennis says:

          It was probably for Holder !

  17. Syd Chaden says:

    The only thing that would surprise me about the UN would be if they ever did anything useful. The US should stop subsidizing the UN corruption and extravagence, and should kick the UN headquarters out of the US..

  18. Count Yob says:

    Who knew the UN crowd were such big partyers?

    1. Karizma says:

      Think it might have gotten the Davos party shipment in a label mix up

  19. Ken Chiarella says:

    Wait a minute!! The drug dealers said they sent 60 pounds. What did the UN do with the other 30?

  20. Bruce McClarron says:

    They better put a couple of their best drug-sniffing-dogs in the mailroom ASAP… Because some 2-legged “diplomatic dogs” are getting rich – and I wonder which african ones are involved!!! And NO “diplomatic immunity” from prosecution for the offenders!!! Send them through the “‘judicial system” like “joe-sixpack”!!

  21. Iwokeup says:

    Addressed to hitlery

  22. Very conservative says:

    Liberalism is a mental disorder.

    1. Big Bear says:

      Drug use is also rampant among liberals. That is why they are so soft on criminals and illegals. They wouldn’t want their favorite drug dealer busted, or the supply to stop.

      1. egan says:

        I am glad you said WAS … must have been a liberal at the time of his snorting.

        1. robert says:

          Once cokehead, always a cokehead!

        2. Shari Peterson says:

          Drug use is not about political affiliation. Rush Limbaugh was addicted to Oxycontin. Another conservative, always has been, even when he was a drug addict.

          1. Steven says:

            Rush is a big government war mongering globalist, hardly a traditional conservative.

      2. Kayhla says:

        Shari, it is supposed to be “Ignorance abounds everywhere, apparently.” Way to prove your own point. As for Bush, he may not have been a liberal, but he was most certainly no conservative. Stupidity is one hell of a drug in and of itself, and both liberals and conservatives are guilty of that.

        1. nope says:

          Can you name one true conservative? Remember, true conservatives don’t give amnesty to criminals and they don’t raise taxes. Just one please and oh yeah, make sure you can show how stupid they are..

          1. onemad says:

            One true conservative? Ron Paul is the only one I know of. Check out his voting record. It is solid.

            1. nope says:

              Ron Paul is a libertarian not a conservative. His record sucks. All those years in office and he has never achieved anything of merit. He’s all talk and no action. His foreign policy is insane to say the least. He’s also a fake Christian who thinks Islam is just fine and dandy. Totally not conservative.

              1. RPJ says:

                If voting in support of the Constitution, Bill of Rights and general rule of law means Ron Paul sucks, I’m with you, brother. I hope he sucks even more. We could use that kind of sucking.

              2. yawn says:

                That is all opinion while you stomp around squawking “cite?” at everyone. Hypocritical libtard stating his opinions as fact again.

              3. cool vs smart says:

                Is one to conclude that ‘real’ Christians are expected to hate on Islam?

                …I just want to make sure that I do what I’m told and think what I’m supposed to. I would be very uncomfortable if our society looked down to me as someone with and individual opinion.

      3. Andrew Moore says:

        You lie. He wasn’t.

      4. john says:

        george bush was a cokehead? Where is the proof? leftwing idiots made that charge but never offered any proof. OTOH, Obozo, the friggin idiot used coke when he was going through college and earning his secret grades; grades he refused to reveal.
        if you have evidence that bush was a cokehead, then cite the facts or STFU.

      5. martin rivers says:

        Obama was a cokehead too….. once an addict, always an addict……

    I’m the stres of making all those command decisions for the rest of us are very stressful.

  29. jerseyjoey says:

    Well i see the keystone cops are winning there war on Illegal drugs. HaHaHa what a sorry joke this country has become, its all the fracking Liberals fault.

    1. SoCalLibArtsMajor says:

      What in the world does a package delivered to the UN have to do with the state of this country or liberals? And to be fair, anyone who doesn’t know the difference between “there” and “their” is the sorry joke. Nice to see you improving the image of Jersey, Joey…

      1. jerseyjoey says:

        DFA liberal i see, well spengalli you are wrong, yes your holliness is wrong, It was not there or thier, it should have been THE, oh boy, a typo must be a capitol or capital offence or offense, Ghee lets cee or see here or hear, well at least im not a digital dependent academic, who hides behind auto correct. Last i looked the worthless liberal un is on American siol or soil and it got there via NYC roads somehow, or do you think luke picard beamed it there or thier.

        1. SoCalLibArtsMajor says:

          No don’t do that. Be a man and admit you got it wrong. To claim it’s a typo and that you meant to type “the” is cowardly. You meant to say “their war on drugs” but you f’d it up. So you see, it’s not a matter of auto correct, it’s a matter of a lack of basic understanding of grammar. By the way, wise choice to write “you are wrong” as that’s safer than the 50/50 chance of “your” or “you’re”.

          1. cultivatelove says:

            MEAN PEOPLE SUCK!

          2. Ronald McDonald says:

            Liberals love to spend other people’s money on entertainment and graft under the guise of do-gooding. Liberals also believe global government is good. This is the epitome of the United Nations, and why liberals love it. US taxpayer dollars should not be involved. I challenge US politicians to bring this to a public referendum. Let’s see how fast Americans choose to save that amount currently going to such a group of corrupt clowns.

    Diplomatic immunity!

    1. Willis Forster says:

      Thank you, i was going to point that out, 90% of the countries there despise us and all of our laws. They collect parking tickets by the hundred. Their position is awarded as a political pay off from their corrupt cronies not based on any sort of merit.

  32. starykozel says:

    Kick them (UN) out from USA – move them to Brussels, or, even better to Somalia. They will feel like being home.

    1. PiperDawg says:

      If only we could then send all the Libs with them… Maybe we would stand a chance of rebuilding America again… as the founders wanted!

  33. Joel Huval says:

    Someone probably wanted to see the UN finally do something, for even a brief moment, do something. Perhaps to even see the UN get up and dance, it’s more than they’ve done in 60 years.

  34. DigitalBob says:

    Brought there in diplomatic pouches that aren’t supposed to be inspected. Classy. I’m guessing there are tons that get through.

  35. Jasper Janek says:

    Only 30 pounds? They must be cutting back, saving the world and all that.

    Is this President Obama’s stash?
