President Obama‘s failing gun control campaign peppered the air waves with the slogan “If we can save just one life.”  However, when it comes to the estimated 17,000 annual deaths from illegal drugs flowing over our porous southern border with Mexico, the President is remarkably silent. President Obama’s four years of border control failures have led to the deaths of tens of thousands of American men, women and children.

The President does not have the legal power to legislate gun control for any purpose even if it sounds honorable. However, Obama does have a legal obligation to protect American citizens and secure the US borders. Since Obama took office, Mexican drug cartels have moved record loads of illegal drugs, relatively unencumbered, across the US southern border. The current year’s data is not available, but based upon 2010 data; these trafficked drugs have killed over twice as many Americans (over 17,000) as those taken in firearm homicides (8036). In fact, in 2010 there were more illicit drug use deaths in America then accidental non-lethal firearms shootings. . . . Read Complete Report

PROGRESO, MEXICO — Mexico’s navy said Wednesday that its personnel had no idea they had killed the leader of the country’s most-feared drug cartel until after his body was stolen from a funeral home in this border town.

The death of Zetas cartel leader Heriberto Lazcano, alias “El Lazca,” in a gunfight with marines Sunday left a wake of fear in the small mining and farming towns that dot the northern plains of Coahuila state. . . Read Complete Report with/photos

An end to the border wars?

Sounds like the time George W. Bush stood on that aircraft carrier in front of a giant banner reading the same two words that he stated to rousting applause on the deck below: ” Mission Accomplished.” How many years ago was that?

And as for the End of the Border Wars . . . don’t forget  the drug part of this bloody war. Still think it’s over? . . . EDITOR

Vast wave of illegals leaving

By Michael Barone

The illegal immigration problem is going away.

That’s the conclusion I draw from the latest report of the Pew Hispanic Center on Mexican immigration to the United States.

Pew’s demographers have carefully combed through statistics compiled by the US Census Bureau, the Department of Homeland Security and the Mexican government, and have come up with estimates of the flow of migrants from and back to Mexico. Their work seems to be as close to definitive as possible.

They conclude that from 2005 to 2010 some 1.39 million people came from Mexico to the United States and 1.37 million went from the US to Mexico. “The largest wave of immigration in history from a single country to the United States,” they write, “has come to a standstill.” . . .

Meet My Town Nuevo Larado

Yes!, this is my town, Nuevo Laredo 🙂

As you can see, it doesn’t have any special or particular thing to show off to the world – except for the notorious drug problems that we commonly have here in the Mexican borders – (shame on us LOL).

Border Wars Extending into United States. First Move – Decapitations

As we have said all along the trouble along our border with Mexico is all part of the Controllers plan to create their North American Union. Although Obama says that there is no problem on the border, most Americans and ALL Mexicans know that to be untrue. We also have said that if  something isn’t done about the violence along the Mexican border it will spread into the United States. Well it has and in the worst way. . . . EDITOR

Expert Says Beheadings in U.S. Look Like Work of Cartels

Three beheadings in two different states and they happened here in the United States, not Mexico.

Former DEA supervisor Phil Jordan says all three beheadings have cartel written all over them. They happened in Arizona and Oklahoma in the past year.

A murder mystery is now unraveling on a stretch of North Reservation Road in Tucson, Ariz. County workers found a headless man lying on the side of the road Jan. 6. The man’s hands and feet were reportedly missing, too.

“It would lead me to believe the message wanted to be sent. This is one of the ways they do it in Mexico, Colombia and other places,” says Jordan.

Jordan says the cartels are getting bolder in carrying out their beheadings across the border. He says we only used to see these crimes in Mexico.

“They don’t have any borders,” says Jordan. . . . Read complete report w/video

NOVEMBER 14, 2011 BY VOLUBRJOTR

Sheriff Threatens Feds With SWAT Team

As more people became dissatisfied with federal government controls and land grabs, it was inevitable that local law enforcement would eventually see the bigger picture. At the northern California fairgrounds of Yreka last month, seven California sheriffs and another from Oregon gathered with a large group of citizens to say that they are finally going to do something about it.

“A giant has been awakened,” said Plumas CountyCalif. Sheriff Greg Hagwood, “and they didn’t count on that,” speaking of the federal bureaucracy. . . the rest of the story

Drug Smuggler Speaks Out About Incarceration and Marijuana | Richard Stratton | TEDxFultonStreet

Published on Nov 12, 2015

Richard Stratton’s education helped him to vacate a coercively harsh sentence, and now he speaks out to help others who are behind bars unjustly. The irony is not lost on Stratton, that recent cannabis legislation has legalized many of the activities for which people are still locked up. He offers a unique glimpse into the mind of an underworld leader, an award-winning writer and filmmaker, and a human rights advocate. Richard Stratton is a former international cannabis smuggler, CEO of a multi-million dollar operation. Arrested in 1982, he was convicted under the “Kingpin Statute” and sentenced to 25 years in federal prison.
