I suppose that by now everyone has heard of Trump’s offer to send the American military to “wage WAR on the drug cartels and wipe them off the face of the earth,” which he asserts can be done “quickly and effectively. “

Trump phrased this as an offer to help, not a threat to invade, which is reassuring. AMLO, Mexico’s president, wisely declined the offer.

While the President seems to have made the offer in good faith, he has little idea of Mexico, the military, or the cartels. The American military could not come close to wiping them off the face of the earth, much less effectively and quickly. Such an incursion would be a political and military disaster. The President needs to do some reading.

If AMLO were to invite the Americans into Mexico, he would be lynched. Few Americans are aware of how much the United States is hated in Latin America, and for that matter in most of the world. They don’t know of the long series of military interventions, brutal dictators imposed and supported, and economic rapine. Somoza, Pinochet, the Mexican-American War, detachment of Panama from Colombia, bombardment of Veracruz, Patton’s incursion–the list could go on for pages. The Mexican public would look upon American troops not as saviors but as invaders. Which they would be.

The incursion would not defeat the cartels, for several reasons that trump would do well to ponder. To begin with, America starts its wars by overestimating its own powers, underestimating the enemy, and misunderstanding the kind of war on which it is embarking. The is exactly what Trump seems to be doing.

He probably thinks of Mexicans as just gardeners and rapists and we have all these beautiful advanced weapons and beautiful drones and things with blinking lights. A pack of rapists armed with garden trowels couldn’t possibly be difficult to defeat by the US. I mean, get serious: Dope dealers against the Marines? A cakewalk.

You know, like Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria. That sort of cakewalk. Let’s think what an expedition against the narcos would entail, what it would face.

To begin with, Mexico is a huge country of 127 million souls with the narcos spread unevenly across it. You can’t police a nation that size with a small force, or even with a large force. A (preposterous) million soldiers would be well under one percent of the population. Success would be impossible even if that population helped you. Which it wouldn’t.

Other problems exist. Many, many of them.

Let’s consider terrain. Terrain is what militaries fight in. Start with the Sierra Madre, which I suspect Trump doesn’t know from Madre Teresa. This is the brutally inhospitable mountain range in the northwest of Mexico, from which a great many of the narcos come.(Sinaloa is next door.) Forestation is dense, slopes steep, communication only by narrow trails that the natives know as well as you know how to find your bathroom. Nobody else knows them. American infantry would be helpless here. The Narcos would be found only when they chose to be found, which would not be at opportune moments.

The Sierra Madre Occidental, home of many of the drug traffickers. I have walked in these mountains, or tried to. It is impossible for infantry, worse for armor, and airplanes can’t see through the trees.

The Tarahumara Indians live in the Sierra Madre. They frequent the trails, sometimes in groups, and carry things not identifiable from the air. In frustration American forces would do what they always do: start bombing, or launching Hellfires from drones, at what they think are, or think may be, or hope might be, narcos. Frequently they would kill innocents having nothing to do with drugs. This wouldn’t bother the military, certainly not remote drone operators in Colorado or somewhere. They get paid anyway. The Indians who just had their families turned into science projects couldn’t do anything about it.

Well, nothing but join the narcos, who might call this a “force multiplier.”

Some other northern Mexican terrain. The Duarte Bridge between Sinaloa and Durango. A company commander, looking at it, would would have PTSD in advance, just to get a start on things.

Of the rest of Mexico, much consists of jungle, presenting the same problems as the Sierra Madre, and of cities and villages. Here we encounter the problem that has proved disastrous for US forces in war after war: there is no way to tell who is a narco and who isn’t.

In cities and towns, narcos are indistinguishable from the general population. How–precisely how, I want to know–would American troops, kitted out in body armor and goggles and looking like idiots, fight the narcos in villages with which they were unfamiliar? The narcos, well armed, would pick off GIs from windows, whereupon the Americans would respond by firing at random, calling in air strikes, and otherwise killing locals. These would now hate Americans. The narcos know this. They would use it.

Culiacan, Sinaloa, Chapo’s home city. It has a high concentration of narcos. Suppose that you are an infantry officer, sent to “fight the cartels.” You have, say, twenty troops with you, all with hi-tech equipment and things dangling. How do you propose to fight the cartels here? Which of the people in the photo, if any, are narcos? You could ask them. That would work.

Don’t expect help from the locals. Most would much rather see you killed than the narcos. And if they collaborated they and their families would be killed. This would discourage them. Bright ideas?

Now a point that Schwarzehairdye in the White House has likely not grasped. The narcos are Mexicans. So is the population. You know, brown, speak Spanish, that kind of thing. The invaders would not be Mexicans. This matters. Villagers usually do not hate the narcos. These provide jobs, buy their marijuana crops, often do Robin Hood things to help the locals. Pablo Escobar did this, Al Capone, Chapo Guzman. There is a whole genre of popular music, narcocorridos, celebrating the doings of the drug trade. (Corridos Prohibidos, by Los Tigres del Norte, for example). Amazon has the CD.

Which means that they would side with the narcos instead of the already-hated soldiers, putos gringos cabrones, que se chinguen sus putas madres.

Further, much of Mexico doesn’t much like its government.

And of course the narcos will have the option of fading into the population and waiting for the gringos to go home. This means that the invasion would become an occupation. The invading forces would thus need bases, which would become permanent. Bases where? All over the country, which is where the narcos are?

Getting the American military into one’s country is much easier than getting it out. The world knows this. Mexicans assuredly do. They know that America has wrecked country after country in the Mideast, always to do something good about democracy and human rights. They know that America is squeezing Venezuela to get control of its oil, squeezing Iran for the same reason, attacked Iraq for the same reason, has troops in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait for the same reason, and has just confiscated Syria’s oil . Mexico has oil. So when Trump wants to send the military to “help” fight drugs, what do you suppose the Mexicans suspect?

Another point: Roughly a million American expats live happily in Mexico. These would be hostages, and they–we–are soft targets. The drones kill five narcos, and the narcos kill five expats. Or ten, or fifty. What does Washington do now?

Finally, consider what happens when you bomb a country, make life dangerous, kill its children, destroy the economy and impoverish its people? Answer: They go somewhere else. With Mexico being made unlivable, Mexicans would have two choices of somewhere else, Guatemala and….See whether you can fill in the blank. Maybe four or five million of them.

Nuff said. May God protect Mexico from Yanquis who would do it good, from advisers, and then adviser creep, and then occupation, and then from badly led militaries who have no idea where they are.

Amazon review: “Another collection of Fred’s Fred on Everything columns, seditious, outrageous, inflammatory, evilly funny. Fred dislikes everything he is supposed to like, and likes everything he is supposed to dislike. He likes downscale bars, thinks bar girls are decent human beings, approves of dogs, motorcycles, and really loud blues. He detests wars, which he has seen several of, loathes ugly feminists with politically significant hairy armpits, believes that congressmen would serve well as skeet, and proposes to tie everyone on Wall Street to an anvil and drop it in a river. Obviously he is a benefactor of humanity, like Gandhi.”

  1. Fred, you spend parts of your columns deriding Trump as a clown. I will agree with you that in some ways he is. One thing he does is run his mouth about things that he has no intention of following up on. If you think any serious amount of Americans would support the war you go on for 100’s of words railing about, you are just not too bright. Perhaps some weapons will be shipped to the Mexican army to be spread around to political friends including some cartel members. That’s about it.

    The cartels will have to remain Mexico’s problem, as you people are the ones that cannot ever keep law and order and due process (yes, you are a Mexican now). Good luck with those cartels down there. What the US CAN do about it, is build a nice effective border barrier (for perhaps $10 million a mile at the high government rate -read “Border control vs. the interstate highway system” and “Border control maintenance vs. defending some Koreans from other Koreans”) to keep you all from sending your Aztec-descended savage scum up this way .

    Somoza, Pinochet, yeah, you mean the Communist Latin Americans hate America, which is perfectly understandable. Your other 3 examples are from 1 to 1 1/2 centuries ago! Dude, seriously? Do Americans hate the Japanese, in general? I’m wondering why Latin Americans would come in such large numbers across our southern border if they hate us so much. That’s just such a weird way to show it.

  4. Amazing how this bitter old chud has plenty to say about a random Trump tweet but nothing to say about the LeBaron family. What a vile, disgusting POS he is. Well at least this column wasn’t a reprint from the Bush Administration years.

    Americans brought it on themselves, really.

    Right now it’s even bigger a pickle – Mexico being a giant trading partner. What they gonna do? Institute sanctions? Mexico is no Yugoslavia – it’s rather exposed. You fucken bet the Chinese would swarm that very instant, at that point the only thing Washington can do is reenact Jonestown.

    How do you beat the narcos? Simple, destroy what makes them so powerful. Smart investments in the area makes the locals more independent from the cartels, and therefore suddenly their savagery becomes more and more of a nuisance. Then you erode their economics (either drug legalization, or even better, employ all the fucking glowies to make a blatant US drug cartel, which is basically what they have been doing). This erodes profits very fast – and then, just like any criminal enterprise – they start striving to go legal (after all, crime for the sake of crime means you’re a bad criminal). Bam, done. DC has that autism tho, they would never do such a thing.

    Of course, another option is a Mexican Mussolini, but this would backfire on America terribly either in the long run or in the short run if they support such a figure, and the same thing that happened in WW2 Italy will happen there – US aligning with their former narco enemies (who would be probably 90% eradicated in Mexico) to overthrow an actually independent regime in Mexico

    Oooh. I might just have identified the very moment America crossed, or at least stepped on the moral event horizon – aligning with the mob for help in invasion of Italy, the reason why the south of Italy is still devastated

  6. nymom says:

    Actually Trump should wait until the end of the week so Mexico can complete their own investigation and see if anyone is arrested for this latest horrific crime and then decide whether or not to send a force into the interior to use a drone to destroy or arrest the criminals responsible for this behavior.

    I don’t think you get it how unsafe you are in that country if we allow this to go unpunished.

    Mexico has already issued a statement that these murders were a case of ‘mistaken identity’ which I don’t believe for a moment. They probably used long range weapons with equipment that would have allowed them to see exactly who was riding in that car. It appears they came down from the hills afterwards and told the surviving children to ‘go home’ so they were some distance away, not a spur of the moment act but a planned ambush of these families.

    Nine people were killed, six of them children. This crime cannot be allowed to go unpunished especially considering this country is right on our border.

    As with drug enforcement assistance programs in Latin America in the past, I think that what the US has to offer is intelligence, surveillance, sensors, and platforms, which will be more useful to the Mexican Government than weapons. I expect that we will indeed be sharing these, although neither the Mexicans nor the Americans will likely say so.

    It would be more reassuring if the US would control cartel activity on the US side of the border.

  8. Let’s accept Fred’s judgments as true. What then to do? Maybe we could build a wall and keep the two nation’s people on their respective sides thereof. That way, all should be happy. No American intervention makes the narcos and wonderful Mexicans happy. They can continue to hate the Americans but without concern of invasion. And northbound invasions would be slowed by the Great Wall thus making Americans happy. Americans, like Fred, living South of the wall could always come home as distasteful to them as that might be.

    Citizens of either nation, in order to visit, would merely apply for a proper visa as is needed for many country visits. There’s nothing new in visas so it would be easy to do. Or, as is otherwise frequently done, just show up at a port of entry with your passport in hand and in you go.

    Those of one country without proper documentation and found in the other would be summarily returned home without ado or process. There are laws about that and deportation should be a police not a judicial process. Any non-citizen or legal resident should simply be returned to wherever he came from and without exception. Just release them at the border and let them navigate for themselves.

    How about that Fred?

  10. Reasons why Fred is wrong:
    1. “militarizing ” the drug war ( and the war against the Maoist FARQ) saved Columbia. We gave them mostly spec op help ( advice and training) and arms and equipement…. It’s why Columbia is a country you can visit now. Medellin used to be the kidnap capital of the world and now it’s a travel destination. …Same should be done with Mexico. We should have the place crawling with all our spec op troops . Get our troops out of the Middle East and help our neighbor to the south….
    2. Pinochet wasn’t so bad… Why Chile is the most prosperous country in S.A…
    3. Build the wall to keep all the neurosurgeons and PhD’s from fleeing to the USA…
    4. Consider legalizing drugs (or decriminalizing at least) in the USA and see if that can reduce the drug trade.. Give it a 10 year trial period with an automatic expiration date .

    At the very least the U.S. military needs to find and liquidate the cartel hired guns who perpetrated this slaughter of Americans. We need to send a message. Go in with special forces, AC130s, and napalm. Turn these sickarios and their mamasitas into cooked beaners.

  12. Fred,
    The issue is over now. No matter how bad the cartels get, Mexico has a per capita income at $20k and above China’s, they are not going to mass breed and exponentiate anymore. Things will begin to stabilize.
    The real issue is that the slowdown in the Mexican economy caused by the cartel violence might cause some outward migration in the short term, and Trump, disliking Hispanic immigrants, is obviously worried about this.
    Also, it is plain frustrating when your citizens get slaughtered in a border country to yours, especially when they have a long and storied history between the two.
    Remember, after the El Paso shooting, Mexico asked for protection for US Hispanics, and was even claiming that they would sue the US for the shooting.
    Now it is radio silence after the slaughter of this poor family, whether they had it coming or not.
    If Mexico is going to act with outrage(and it was merited in some way) after the El Paso shooting, then it is merited for America to get a little irritated when its citizens get executed by people who a country of Mexico’s wealth really should be able to deal with.

    Back when I was an open-minded undergrad we had a visiting female professora from Chile give a talk in an econ class. I thought I’d impress the hottie by showing my ‘no-ledge’ by bringing poor Allende. She smiling shut me down by informing me how Pinochet was a popular leader that saved the economy, and thus living standards of all Chile. In addition, she hinted that Allende was assumed to bring Soviet-style repression in his wake. Moral of the story was to get first person sources instead of whatever bullshit the Cause-of-The-Week that the young (and quite dumb) intellectual idiots of academia are pushing as a mantra.

    Pinochet was a popular figure; he saved Chile from communism. The basic Latino wants a stable government. If the merde-du-tete that wrote this trash actually knew about the people he’d know that. Likely he does, and is a troll. If the US went across the border, waxed the Cartels and established a competing democracy, then we’d have allies. Instead of that we support Mafia states that benefit an (((International))) Elite. That’s what we did in Japan, allow them to have a real State. Latin America is basically a depressed basketcase that is doomed to be a source of raw materials for the US, whether it be cheap labor, or undervalued primary goods. There will never be a manufacturing base allowed that can stand up to US meddling. Unlike China the Latin countries will continue to be exploited, which is where the Yanqui go home comes from. But it’s more along the lines of Eddie Murphy’s sketch about Jamaica and the Rastas…”Kill de White People, but buy my record first”..

    the Mexican-American War, detachment of Panama from Colombia, bombardment of Veracruz, Patton’s incursion–the list could go on for pages.

    It’s Fred that needs to do some reading instead as he obviously subscribes to the partisan Mexican view of the Mex-American war wherein Mexico was innocent and blameless while the Anglo settlers were rapacious brutes.

    Patton did not make in incursion into Mexico; General Jack “Blackjack” Pershing did in response to murderous cross border raids by Pancho Villa and other mestizo bandits. Patton served under Pershing. The raid didn’t happen in a vacuum nor was it Anglo imperialism as Fred seems to suggest.

    If war were to ever break out and one million American expats are at risk then the Mexican American population is fair game, then. The majority of Mexicans in America are loyal to Mexico and other Mexicans and still have family in Mexico. White Americans would soon find out what a trojan horse they’ve been all along.

    In this column Fred admits that Latin Americans hate America. Common sense would say that we shouldn’t let these people into America yet we’ve let tens of millions in since 1965 and more are coming. But then in other columns Fred tells us, with a straight face, that the same people who hate America would make great American citizens and almost be on par with whites if only white nationalists weren’t standing in their way.

    As any Mexican can tell you, the memory of the 1848 Mexican-American War, known in Mexico as la Intervenciőn de los Putos Gringos en México Lindo, is very much alive. The boy military cadets who hurled themselves from the 200 ft walls of Chapultepec Castle–known in US military jargon as the Halls of Montezuma–are honored national heroes whose bravery is embedded in the Mexican national identity. The 170 years are nothing, the events at Chapultepec transcend space and time. If Trump dared intervene in Mexico even the children here would fight.

    What you have missed, however, Mr. Fred, is that our MO is to team up with the narcos to flood the streets of America’s cities with the latest product to finance black budget initiatives; given the ongoing coup against Orangeman, don’t think for a moment we’ll be fighting Mexican narcos; it won’t be long before someone finds an Iranian connection, especially when IEDs start going off across occupied Mexico.

    Invasion is not how the US bends nations to its will these days. It is done through economic strangulation. Mexico is a failed state that depends on access to the US economy. We saw how fast AMLO folded when Trump threatened to impose tariffs on Mexican exports.

    Internet research does not get you to ideas of whether the Mexican, C. American, and S. American people hate Americans due to a war fought in 170-odd years back. I’ve been to Mexico, and I’ve been twice to S. America (the cone, only). I knew pretty well a couple and kid from Colombia, and knew very well a guy from further down S. America. There was no hatred in writing, and no hatred in person.

    Your idiocy is that just because they are fed this history in school, that they hate Americans for it. Nobody but the agitators for the taking over of the American SouthWest really keep some kind of feelings in their hearts about happenings 170 years ago. Do Americans “remember the Alamo”? Just from class one might, or if one actually had ancestors involved – even then (for the latter case) it takes a very curious child to actually care much. Any precautions Americans take down there are due to the violence of the drug cartels and crooked Federales. This is not hatred, but savage revenge violence from a people whose ancestors dismembered people for the Sun God (the former), and that inability to run a proper show that is inherent anywhere south of the Rio Grand (the latter). If you pay attention, you’ll read that AMLO’s rhetoric is not like the stupidity that came out of people like Vicente Fox.

    Old history is meant to be learned from, so the same stupidity is not repeated.

    If Trump dared intervene in Mexico even the children here would fight.

    Ha! You’re an idiot. Donald Trump is NOT coming down there to kick your asses. He has a personality very much like a child, easily distracted by silliness, as with this column by Fred Reed. If you do some actual reading, you might learn that President Trump, in ACTUALITY, not BLABBERY, has pretty good relations with AMLO and the Mexican government. That’s how he cajoled them to put the kibosh on those caravans from Guatemala. The Mexicans stopped them and turned them around 20 miles north of the Mexican border.

    A few minutes of research from time to rinse before you start running off at the keyboard would not be amiss.

    Perhaps YOU should spend more time AWAY from the keyboard, and get out of the house and around the world, or at least across town to a library for some real books.

    After Cuba’s now 70-year-long, forever-in-progress Revolución started, the US government got rightly worried about Communism in the western hemisphere. This continued during the Pinochet/Allende years and later the Daniel Ortega and the civil wars in El Salvador and Nicaragua. There was the Shining Path in Peru that has hopefully burned itself out. Of course, way back before the Cold War or Communism had even taken Russia, there had been American influence on behalf of American Big Business.

    That’s not completely, but mostly, in the past. Venezuelan peasants brought on their own current problems by voting in a Communist years ago. Before that, the place had been the crown jewel of S. America. This is what happens. I could turn that around and say the American people (just like down there, NOT ALL OF US) voted in the Socialism and multiculturalism we have ourselves. There is nobody else for me to blame. Just like down there, one can’t just vote one selves out of it either.

    We each will have to take care of our own Communists and Socialists, as there’s no outside Free World anymore to help.

    He had backtracked a bit in that column, Rex. I need to get off the internet myself right now, but if you are still looking, go back some more. I can’t quote wording, but the gist of Mr. Reed’s writing was that Americans should not prevent these good people from assimilating (WTF?! As if??) , close to what Ken wrote, and we have no reason to not like their being here.

    Worst, to me, was that Mr. Reed would disparage the very people (of VDare, any anti-immigration group) who WERE doing something to, well, try, against big opposition, to get the US government to stop this immigration invasion. He has indeed backed off this one too, with some decent words, for a change, on John Derbyshire.

    Mr. Reed would complain about America’s problems (why? He doesn’t live here anymore anyway), and, in the same column, bad mouth any American who was actually making an effort to solve these problems. If he’s really changed his mind, good on him. I have all the previous Reed opinions in my mind.

    This column here is just silly. If America were to invade Mexico, we’d have to start with California, Arizona, New Mexico and west Texas first, with national guard operations all over the country. I think Fred would have plenty of time to GTFO!

    An excellent article by someone who knows. The United States successfully invaded Mexico in the 1840s (my great-great grandfather died in that war) but they went for Mexico City, not for the drug-infested mountains of the north. A military operation there would be as successful as the farce in Afghanistan. By the way, the “Americans” who were killed by the cartel are really Mormons whose ancestors went to Mexico over 100 years ago, the same batch of Mormons that produced Mitt Romney. Although he never lived there, his father did. No, Fred is not a Mexican. He’s an American who choses to live in Mexico, an option many of us would chose if Democrats ever take this country over again.

    I was waiting for that also. There is a 40 minute video about the polygynous LeBaron clan available on Information Clearing House (The Mexican Mormon War). The family patriarch had 17 wives and at least 50 children. These shady break-away Mormons left Utah for Mexico so they could continue to safely practice the plural marriage belief of their founder, Joseph Smith. The US would not allow Utah statehood unless its Mormons rejected polygyny. Mitt Romney’s father was born in Mexico. Those Mexican Mormons are wealthy and their compounds are very well defended. They are no strangers to killing.

    Anglo Americans were horrified to see the faces of all those beautiful blonde children gunned down by narcos, but their parents chose to live there so they could continue to practice plural marriage. Col. Douglas McGregor, a frequent guest on Tucker Carlson, said that it would be insane for the US to invade Mexico. One thing McGregor pointed out that Fred didn’t is that there are thousands of violent well-armed Mexican gang members and narcos living in the US. They are not about to just sit in front of the TV and watch their compadres be slaughtered by the American military. There would be massive blood atonement. McGregor’s commonsense solution is to end the foreign wars, bring the troops home, and station them on our Southern border.

    You only lifted arguments that came out of one side of Fred’s mouth (when Fred takes his meds he sometimes concedes arguments made by the Dissident Right). On the other side, in the same article, he said:

    I have often pointed out that the Dissident Right, fervently disliking Latinos, criticizes Hispanics for all sins real or imagined but never says what policies it favor toward the tens of millions American citizens of Latin-American descent.

    But back to business. Suppose the Dissident Right, instead of snuffling around after defects of Latinos like truffle pigs on the hunt, asked how to make the best of a situation that, good, bad, or undecided, can’t be changed?

    So in the foregoing snarky two paragraphs he’s already setting up the Dissident Right as the strawman for why Latinos aren’t more successful in America or haven’t assimilated faster.

    Encouraging their entrance into the middle class, what is left of it, is not charity but self-preservation, much in the national interest whether the Dissident Right likes it or not. Left to themselves, Latinos will do rise on their own, and are doing it, but anything that speeds the process is good for America.

    The Dissident Right that he lambasts has no political power whatsoever and therefore, no control over the situation so he’s wasting his breath. But given all the set asides and affirmative action there’s nothing stopping Latinos from becoming middle class other than their own lack of scholastic achievement, lower average IQs and anti-Anglo, revanchist political organizations like MEChA, La Raza and LULAC. The “Dissident Right” has pointed this out on many occasions and backed it up with facts and studies but Fred and other hispanderers either ignore it or just shoot the messenger.

    Here are two more of Fred’s gems where he misrepresents the positions and overstates the political power of the Dissident Right/alt-right/white nationalists with regards to domestic policy towards Latinos living in the U.S while pretending like they alone prevent Latinos from becoming whole in America:
    http://www.unz.com/freed/in-search-of-intelligent-latin-policy/
    http://www.unz.com/freed/a-dubious-patriotism/

    According to Fredrico, if the Dissident Right starts supporting assimilation of Latinos then it’s only a matter of time before they morph into brown skinned Swedes.

    It’s not just infant American citizens, children and women being murdered openly on highways in Mexico, now is it Fred? So what is to be done about that little matter? How many thousands need to be tortured , slaughtered and buried in not very hidden mass graves in the Mexican countryside before something is done about that? The various Mexican governments have all be either so corrupt or indifferent to this problem that this has only gotten worse. These are Mexican citizen victims..

    The Germans and Russians (not to mention Japanese) have shown how large populated nations can be invaded and cowed. Mexico’s military wouldn’t last two days. But Fred is correct about the quagmire of invasion. Sure, one idea is to set up a “cordon sanitere” of say 200 kms inside Mexico from the US border. That could be easily managed. Still, a bad idea. Despite Fred’s assurance that Uncle Sam is hated in Latin America, he fails to note the hundreds of thousands (including many Mexicans) who illegally risk their lives to come and live here. So it’s love-hate, right?

    Legalizing and regulating current illegal drugs in the US would quickly de-fund the cartels from their vast profits. Then all they would have left is kidnapping rich expat gringos like Fred. Now they rarely bother. But if money gets tight…

I had very strong opinions on the subject. I do not think there was ever a more wicked war than that waged by the United States on Mexico. I thought so at the time, when I was a youngster, only I had not moral courage enough to resign. I had taken an oath to serve eight years, unless sooner discharged, and I considered my supreme duty was to my flag. I had a horror of the Mexican War, and I have always believed that it was on our part most unjust. The wickedness was not in the way our soldiers conducted it, but in the conduct of our government in declaring war. The troops behaved well in Mexico, and the government acted handsomely about the peace. We had no claim on Mexico. Texas had no claim beyond the Nueces River, and yet we pushed on to the Rio Grande and crossed it. I am always ashamed of my country when I think of that invasion.”

    I’ve been reading Fred’s columns since before Unz picked them up. He has never said that it was a good idea to invite millions of Latinos to settle here, and several times said that it wasn’t. (You can quibble that the illegal ones weren’t invited, but the actions of employers and many state and city governments say otherwise.)

    What Fred has said, repeatedly, is that like it or not, the legal Latinos (and most of the illegals) are here to stay. This is self-evidently true, though you can argue about how many illegals could be deported (or would self-deport) if enforcement actually happened. Several other things he says, whether or not you agree with them, follow from this.

    I do take issue with the way Fred views assimilation. As I have pointed out (comment #56 to Fred’s “Immigration and Teething Pains” column), it’s something immigrants and their descendants do (or don’t do), not something we can do for them, or to them. Even if Eduardo has a business and pays taxes, he’s not assimilated if he lives in a barrio, his children speak Spanish in the home, and the only Anglos he sees in an average week are his customers. On the other hand, if his neighbors are mostly white and his kids’ playmates and teachers speak English, then he is assimilating–even if he’s on welfare.

    $100,000 fine for each and every instance of “undocumented” workers at any employer.

    Of course politically all of this is a no go zone. So let us hope Trump/Pence go full retard with a Military Coup of their own and we can scrap all the non-constitutional activities of government, like the EPA, or Dept of Education, return to Christian principles like “you work you eat” and we would save trillions housing all of these ex-government workers in fenced in work camps in the desert, or arctic. And they would have a real incentive to work, rather than steal. And of course we would nationalize all foreign investment in the country, and seal our borders and finances. Naturally, the rest of the planet would burn pretty quickly, and not from “global warming” but we would be fine here at home without those parasites.

    Oh, yeah, I do remember the exchange about imaginary Edwardo, Rex. No, you’re right, Mr. Reed did not say America needs, or should invite, more people from south of the border, but do you remember that he disparaged Trump’s idea of a border wall? (As much as I’ve written that it does not need to be an actual wall, per se, just a good, effective barrier, we all know Trump likes the sound bites – “Build the Wall”.)

    As I wrote to Fred (he doesn’t read any of this) multiple times, the point of a border barrier is to stop all the new entries. See, he says America sucks because we do this and don’t do that, but then building a wall for a couple/few billion (not a DAY’S WORTH of the Feral budget) is silly and yet another stupid thing, according to Fred. He likes neither problems nor solutions.

    Yes, we both agree that it’s not like Americns wouldn’t like the 30 million illegal and maybe more than that legal Hispanics to assimilate. There is no incentive to assimilate, though, for groups of large numbers. It’d be the very same thing for 5 million Americans in one are of Mexico, had the Mexicans foolishly let them in. See “Immigration invasion, assimilation, and refugees”. Mr. Reed made disparaging remarks about the anti-immigration people because supposedly they did not want Hispanics to assimilate. If they assimilated, there WOULD BE NO PROBLEM. A large number of VDare articles, in fact, are about the problems due to their NOT ASSIMILATING!

    Oh, yeah, one more thing: Mr. Reed went off about Trump’s and Ann Coulter’s talk of “Mexico not sending its best” and that sort of thing. That’s true, and even comports with his description of how lovely his little village is and his impression with Mexican engineers, doctors, etc. We all know that those aren’t the people being smuggled north.

    Not Right or Left and didn’t vote for Trump.

    But, I have to say, once again Fred ignores the fact that Mexico has already invaded the US.

    They openly brag about it and about how they’re going to replace us. Even violently.*

    All the while carrying their flag as they cross the border.

    Who cares if you’re wife’s Mexican? So?

    My wife’s a Latina. An American-loving, Freedom-loving Legal Latina at that. But again, so?

    This isn’t about them it’s about us.

    But, above all, the fact that Trump is a clown, and he most certainly is, is beside the point.

    The point is, if you want to be on the side of Nation-Wreckers there are consequences.

    You are gleefully cheering on the destruction of a nation you openly despise. Ok. So be it.
    But you also think there should be no consequences.

    Few Americans are aware of how much the United States is hated in Latin America, and for that matter in most of the world.

    And yet the rest of the world explodes in anger and accusations of racism and xenophobia if they’re not allowed into the country they hate.

    Later in the article Fred says this:

    The narcos, well armed, would pick off GIs from windows, whereupon the Americans would respond by firing at random, calling in air strikes, and otherwise killing locals.

    These would now hate Americans.

    I thought you said that they, along with the rest of the world, already do hate us. Oops! (Maybe you should have someone read your copy before pushing “send”).

    The narcos know this. They would use it.

    First, if they already hate us and would help the narcos kill us then they are, in effect, helping the enemy and so, are ipso facto, part of the Narco-Mexican Military.

    Instead of being enraged at the US Military for taking them out, the world should be enraged at a cowardly Naro Military willing to use woman and children as sheilds.

    Then again, how do you think they get their drugs across the border?
    They don’t call them mules for nothing. That’s what THEY think of their own people – as animals.

    And how much sleep would you lose Fred if they did that to us? If they bombed whole towns and cities. None. Obviously. So who cares what you think?

    I spent 20 years living in Latin America. My wife’s Latina. I answer to no man regarding my affection and genuine love for some of its poeople.

    But that has never blinded me to certain facts about my perspective regarding Latin America, historical or contemporary (anymore than my love for the US has blinded me to its many imperfections, or my self-respect has blinded me to my own failings).

    Let me get right to the point.

    You want to know the difference between the Developed and Developing Worlds?

    1.The Developing world is filled with people constitutionally incapable of internalizing rules, norms and moral codes (we have that with blacks in the US and a small, tiny, percetage or wiggered Whites).

    For example, there will never be an organization called Mexican Moms Against Drunk Drivers. It would call too much attention to their incredible inability to not combine drhinking with driving.

    2. They continously adopt the ideas and institutions of the US and Western Europe WITHOUT BEING ABLE TO ADAPT to them. Today call that Dunning-Kruger Effect. They overestimate themselves and underestimate us.

    They arrogantly assume they can, thinking, “If Whites can do it, so can we.” This explains much of their delusional self-confidence and totally corrupt willingness to simply blame all of their character defects, social problems and overall stupidities on us – being essetially the child-people that they are.

    3. Latin America has spent the last 500 years moving mindlessly back and forth between chaos and dictatorship. That pattern has been slightly modified and softened over the last 30 years to simply social conformity and economic stagnation (which always obtained anyway) resulting in continued cultural disintegration.

    They’re a Chaotic, Confused, and Corrupt People. Or, CCCP.

    The exceptions are just that, exceptional, not to mention they many who truly are warm, hospitable and charming to no end. But they are powerless to change anything. So nothing moves.

    Except the people. They’re moving alright. To the one country they supposedly hate.

  102. @padre

    Good point. Korea and Vietnam were in the era of the Cold War, when Communism looked like it would take over most of the world. In hindsight, at least the latter was a bad idea. That’s in hindsight. As far as the Middle East and all that the neocons (scroll down) have wrought, I think Americans have gotten smarter about that, and, of course, the country is beyond broke. People don’t seem to know that yet – they will.

    No, nobody in his right mind supports a serious war with Mexico over some slaughtered family that made their bed in Mexico, as sad and horrific as it was. Our best bet is to build that border barrier for real, and handle MS-13, Mexican cartel savages as best as we can HERE, before things get as bad as they have in Mexico.

    do you remember that he disparaged Trump’s idea of a border wall?

    Yes, and so do I. The wall, if built, will be to immigration what TSA is to terrorism: an expensive, symbolic gesture whose costs outweigh its actual benefits. Real anti-immigration measures–a moratorium on legal immigration, an end to the “refugee” racket, penalties for sanctuary cities and employers–would cost less and have far greater impact. But the wall gives Trump a visible symbol to rally his supporters, and a nice boondoggle for his buddies in the construction industry.

    As I’ve written before, I really don’t believe Trump is serious about cutting down on immigration. Why should he be? His businesses benefit from cheap labor as much as any others, perhaps more when you consider the demographics of the typical hotel housekeeping staff.

    I have to disagree with Fred’s assessment that the a US-Mexican alliance couldn’t be successful in a war against the para-military narcos. This actually the type of war that can be won. These loose confederations of decently armed drug traffickers could be hunted down, or driven to ground, their crops and manufacturing sites destroyed, their ability to sell and export drugs seriously impaired. It would take willpower and perseverance, but could be done. The way Rudy Giuliani cracked the crime wave in NY is a great example. He went borough by borough, block by block, and this could be done on a national scale. The narcos aren’t everywhere, they just need to be tracked, boxed in, and destroyed.

    Fred loves the Mexican people, wouldn’t he want these folks to be free of the bloodsucking gangsters who drug and destroy their country? Sometimes it seems that blind hatred of Trump prevents people from seeing the great potential in some of his ideas.

    I do take issue with the way Fred views assimilation.

    You should because that’s where Fred goes off the rails and blames everyone, particularly the Dissident Right, instead of the latinos themselves.

    Many Mexicans and other Latinos are resisting assimilation and stubbornly cling to their culture and language and even demand it be put on an equal footing to English and American culture. Go to South Florida and it will feel more like Cuba than America just like parts of California, Arizona and Texas feel like more Mexico.

    European Americans have every right to oppose these growing microcosms of Latin America on their soil that they never got to vote for.

    Latinos have much higher school drop out rates, significantly higher gang participation rates (even higher than blacks), higher welfare dependency rates and commit violent crimes at about 2-4X that of native born whites. And on top of all that they vote for anti-white Democrats at 66-72%. So Latinos have not made America better, they’re radically changing the U.S. political landscape (and often boast about it) and the vast majority have demonstrated their unwillingness or inability to assimilate.

    Mexico is a failed state to a large part because we stole 40% of their best land in the 1840’s with president Polk who like all other presidents, lied us into a war.

    I am the first one to enjoy the fruits of this theft since I live in TX but nonetheless, I have to admit that Mexico has had a very raw deal since the 1820’s.

    Interestingly enough, Napoleon is the one to blame for having put in place all the conditions for this spectacular catastrophy that has been Mexican independence from Spain. Had he not invaded Spain in 1807, Spain would have been able to maintain its grip on Mexico and likely avoid the civil war of the 1820’s which might have kept the idiots in charge in Mexico City from welcoming with open arms soon-to-be Texians to fight Comanches…another tale of bad immigration policies gone worse..

    “Legalizing and regulating current illegal drugs in the US would quickly de-fund the cartels from their vast profits. Then all they would have left is kidnapping rich expat gringos like Fred.”

    Not necessarily true. Cartels also run the illegal immigration trade to a large extent. Legalizing drugs is a start, but clamping down on the wetback trade is also necessary. Instituting a total clampdown might be a better first step, along with cutting off any welfare to wetbacks, including medical treatment. Legalization would stop the cross border drug trade and that would be eliminating both major sources of money for cartels at the same time.

    I’m no expert, so the clampdown will likely require a huge, multilevel effort that I can’t even imagine, but I can see that it has to be done if the goal of government is to actually solve some of the problems. That’s the big “IF” that confronts me when I think about all this. It looks more to me as though the biggest beneficiaries of the current mess are governments and those who control them for their own profit.

    That makes it unlikely that anything like what I think might work will ever be considered, let alone done.

    If you want to get a lot of Americans north of the border killed, just invade Mexico. I stress again that there are thousands of nasty well-armed Mexican gang members and narcos living in this country. No doubt many are US citizens. They are not about to sit in front of their laptops watching their compadres (many totally innocent) be killed in the hundreds by the US military, even if the Mexican government supported it (Fred said it wouldn’t). MS-13 would be glad to join them in street justice. Talk about blowback, how about blood atonement!

    Invading Mexico is an hysterical reaction to seeing the faces of those dead blonde Mormon kids on TV. I feel for them, but their parents chose to live in Mexico so that they could continue to practice plural marriage without the government butting in. If they wanted their children to be safe, they could return to the US and live. All they’d have to do would be to abandon polygyny, as their Mormon ancestors did so that Utah could become a state.

The U.S. military has no intention of getting involved in a slog over the Mexican Sierras. If we wanted to have some real fun, we’d simply set up military checkpoints along Highways 101 or 17 which are now controlled by the cartels. At each checkpoint have plenty of .50-cal weapons, snipers and attack helicopters. The cartels would see this as a great humiliation to Mexico and come to us.

    Think of the benefits. Mexicans would be able to use their interstate highways after dark for the first time maybe in 30 years. And the gore videos of dead narcos would be amazing.

    BTW, since I fundamentally don’t believe anything I read anymore, I tracked down that book at archive.org, to verify the quote, and the citation is actually at pp 447-448 in Volume II. It’s worth reading on from the quoted block of text. For example, the next sentence…

    Once in Mexico, however, and the people, those who had property, were our friends. We could have held Mexico, and made it a permanent section of the Union with the consent of all classes whose consent was worth having.

    It’s probably best that they didn’t. The future Civil War might’ve turned out completely differently for the Union. Or not even taken place. And the slavery enthusiasts would’ve gone on (or resumed, on a Brazil-scale) importing black Africans.

    US Grant was a good military leader but as a political thinker he was a conformist boob who didn’t have an original thought. Mexico had no right to Texas, North of the Rio Grande, and wasn’t “Invaded” by the USA. Grant skips over the fact that Mexico – under a dictatorship – wanted war, started it with the USA, and thought they could win it.

    We didn’t steal land from Mexico, since Mexico had no more right to it than we did. They stole it from the Spanish, who stole it from the Indians. In any case, we PAID Mexico for all the land we annexed. We didn’t even demand reparations for the war costs, which was standard practice back then.

    Crying about the injustice of the Mexican war was standard practice in the North, it was supposed to a “Slavers War” that only helped the South by annexing Texas. That the USA got California, NM, and Arizona was overlooked by these short sighted fools.

    The Mexicans stole the land from the Spanish crown, the Spanish Crown stole it from the Comanche, the Comanche stole it from the Lipan Apache who stole it from someone else. The Mexicans don’t really have any claim to lands they only controlled from 1821 to 1836 in the case of Texas, and 1846 in the case of lands won by, and paid for, after the Mexican-American War.

    Spain has a much more serious claim if you want to go by length of time the territory was controlled, although they did give up claims after they Mexican Revolution, though I suppose if you accept that treaty, you have to accept the one the Mexicans signed with the US.

    The Mexican government does not have a monopoly on the use of violence. In fact, from what foreigners can observe, the cartels seem to dictate the rules of the game. They forced the Mexican police to free a criminal, and have just recently assassinated the police officer who had arrested him. This is surely not a desirable, or sustainable, state of affairs.

    Getting the US involved is indeed stupid, but how do you propose Mexico solve its drugs cartel problem?

    Prior to any US military intervention in Mexico, a few things must be done.

    1) All illegal alien invaders — there may be upwards of 30 million of them in the USA — must be deported from the USA.

    2) The corporate propaganda apparatus in the USA must be destroyed and, after that is done, the close connection between the JEW/WASP ruling class of the American Empire and the Mexican ruling class must be repeatedly pointed out to the American people using the new media outlets. The Bush Organized Crime Syndicate — and its dealings with the Mexican ruling class — could be used as an example to show the American people how it works.

    3) Build a massive wall using concrete and stone and steel and completely and totally isolate Mexico.

    4) Go after the Mexican ruling class with everything the US military has short of using nukes.

    RULING CLASSES is higher up the power politics chart than drug cartels.

    Go After The Mexican Ruling Class and the JEW/WASP Ruling Class Of The American Empire.

    Rex, I completely agree with you on the boondoggle and security-theatre that is the TSA. Since you read Peak Stupidity, you can find my thought on it, from the 16th year after 9/11/01 on “16 Years of Spreading Democracy – They still hate us for our freedoms(?)”. The budget is $46 Billion* and there and there are 60,000-odd employess, more than 75% of them full time.

    A “wall”, per my quick estimates in the links above, would require around 1/4 or so of the manpower and maybe 5-10 % of that budget to man and maintain it. I used the quotes for reasons I don’t want to repeat here again. (“wall” vs. working border barrier). Here’s a real big difference, Rex. While the TSA is a complete very obvious violation of the US Constitution’s 4th Amendment limits on unreasonable searches, a border invasion barrier is, well, kind of one of the ACTUAL purposes of the Federal Gov’t’s being in existence.

    That said, pretty much our main disagreement, I agree that all of the internal controls on employment, the ending of the legal “refugee” racket and all you say have got to be part of any real solution to the replacement of the American people. However, just on the illegal side, and maybe slightly for legal immigrants too, any kind of deportations (say for having illegally worked at the meat packing plant with a stolen ID) mean NOTHING, Rex, without strict control of the border. Think about it. How many times have you read of a 5th-time Mexican felon who murdered the last time, after his 5th entry into the country?

    Most times it won’t be all the egregious cases you read about but just the simple alternate-legal-system available to the “undocumented”. Jose got a DUI with no injuries this time. An American would have his life fairly screwed-up for a few years (lots of money, maybe problems getting the next job, etc.), while Jose high-tails it back to Ole Mexico. When he comes back in as JosB, nobody will know he is JosA from such incidents as that DUI. I tried to explain this to Ron Unz to no avail (at least no reply on this question.)

    On your take on Trump, Rex, I’ll write back shortly – got busy here.

    .

    * And, I don’t know if that includes the “security fees” paid by every paying passenger boarding and airline in the US. If that makes up the income, that’s a way of getting people to think they get something or nothing, as passengers will assume this money goes to the airline.

    It doesn’t have to try to solve anything.

    What needs to happen is for the US to decriminalize _all_ drugs that are currently illegal North of the US/Mexico border. Most likely, the drug cartels would then disappear, almost overnight.

    Until that happens, the cartels will continue, will grow, and will become evermore violent [they’re just getting “warmed up” right now].

East Texas and the Central Valley in California are the only really good areas of farmland that we ended up with, and these areas certainly weren’t ‘most of the best land in old Mexico.’ When we gained Texas, it was populated by murderous Comanches and Apaches who butchered every Mexican they could get their hands on, and the total sum of Mexican settlements in that area consisted of a few terrified families who lived along the Rio Grande border. Heading north into Texas wasn’t something they did unless they wanted to be murdered by the Indians. It wasn’t territory they actually ever inhabited.

  193. What most folks don’t know (and that includes Fred Reed), is that the U.S. military has operated in Mexico in modern times, with no backlash as a consequence. Of course, the U.S. military was invited by the Mexican government into Mexico under rather dire circumstances.

    Basically, the radiation source from a cancer treatment machine got dumped out in various places in Mexico. The Mexican government needed to find the radioactive pellets ASAP to minimize the number of Mexicans injured and killed by the radiation.

    The Mexican government didn’t have the equipment needed for the job. The U.S. military did. So the Mexican government invited the U.S. Army (specially equipped helicopters apparently) to enter Mexico and find the loose pellets. The consensus is that the U.S. military and the Mexican government found most of them (but not all of them).

    See “Contaminated Rebar from Juarez” (https://www.orau.org/ptp/collection/accidents/juarez.htm) for one of many articles about this tragedy (some Mexicans died from radiation poisoning).

    What does this have to do with the cartels? A lot actually. If the Mexican government discretely asked for U.S. help against the cartels, the backlash would be minimal. If the U.S. simply invaded Mexico, the opposition would be intense. Since what Trump appears to be proposing is U.S. assistance to Mexico’s government, the downside doesn’t appear to be that great.

    Will AMLO accept Trump’s offer? Probably not. Will AMLO prove to be an effective president of Mexcio? Probably not.

    Arnieus,

    No country that intends to survive can legalize opiates. The downside (widespread addiction) is simply to great. In the 19th century the British fought two successful war to open China to opiates (while the British banned them at home). The following is a quote about the Opium Wars.

    From “Heroin, Morphine and Opiates” (https://www.history.com/topics/crime/history-of-heroin-morphine-and-opiates)

    “In the British Parliament, William Ewart Gladstone denounced the First Opium War as “a war more unjust in its origin, a war more calculated in its progress to cover this country with permanent disgrace.” Gladstone’s younger sister Helen, it should be noted, suffered from opium addiction.

    China’s losses in the Opium Wars ushered in what was known in China as the “Century of Humiliation,” which ended with the Japanese defeat in World War II and the establishment of the People’s Republic of China in 1949.”

    Fred, Fred, Fred,
    I had a bet with myself that Trump alluding to American military action in Mexico would put a burr under your saddle blanket and your next column would be about the subject. And sure enough.

    I have been following you for about 10 years or more and while I have agreed with a lot you have to say, I will have to mention that in the last few years you have been, to a large extent, “going native.” That is to say your columns seem to continually extol the virtues of Mexicans and their culture without mentioning any of the down side. I suspect it is a type of survival mechanism. It’s probably good to go on about how Mexicans are the next best thing to sliced bread when one is married to one of them and surrounded by them. I would think that if you continually wrote articles about what murderous thugs the Mexican cartels are your illustrious writing career might come to an abrupt bloody end. So, while it helps your survival, I can’t say the same for your credibility.

    The real question in my mind would be should the murderous thugs that killed those Americans be allowed to go unpunished? My desire would be no. But there is no reason to invade your precious Mexico. Christmas is coming and the cartels love to gather with their families at their compounds and celebrate. I bet many of those compounds are known to the U.S. military. A half a dozen or so cruise missiles landing on each of them during Christmas day would send a message that our citizens are not to be indiscriminately killed. And not one American soldier would be put in harms way.

    Of course the Mexican government would scream like the only bitch on a pirate ship. But what could they do? The President of Mexico knows that if things escalated he would quickly lose power and then his life. So not unlike the poor ravished girl on the pirate ship he would scream and cry. And finally accept what is being put to him.

    It might cause some violence at home in America, you may say? Mexicans might start attacking random Americans, cars might start blowing up in Walmart parking lots? If it did happen sentiment in America would turn against them. And it would give President Trump the excuse he needs to declare all of them enemy combatants and start using troops to deport them en mass right back to Mexico where they belong. We could even have a Mariachi band as we send them back over the border. It would probably cut down on the democratic voter base and also be a pretty good distraction from the impeachment fiasco. I know Trump’s white voter base would love it. They would probably lobby to make him a 4 term elected President like F.D.R.

    Well, I’ve never really investigated the details of the Mexican War, but my impression is that it’s not unreasonable to argue that the U.S. “stole” a huge fraction of Mexico, probably something like half its territory when you include Texas, California, and the rest of the Southwest.

    But although the parts we grabbed may have amounted to something approaching 50% of Mexico’s land, they only included about 1% of Mexico’s population, and the mast majority of that sliver was concentrated in New Mexico. For example, the figures I’ve seen are that there were only around 7,000 Spanish-speaking people in California and maybe 15,000 in Texas. And supposedly a good fraction of the local Mexicans were very resentful of their distant and oppressive national government, and had mixed feelings about becoming part of the U.S.

    Basically, the whole area was mostly just empty desert, populated by wild Indian tribes.

    Now obviously losing a big chunk of empty desert to your more powerful neighbor in the North is pretty embarrassing and looks really bad on the maps in your modern high school history books. But I don’t think it’s exactly the most horrible international crime of the last 500 years.

    Ron,

    The American were invited into Texas by the Mexican Government, because very few Mexicans wanted to live there. Nobody wanted to leave the comparative safety, and easy life, of Central Mexico to go live in that howling Wilderness. Texas, despite all the fighting over it, was not considered an attractive place to live. Even as late as the 1860’s General Sheridan supposedly remarked that if he “was to own both Texas and Hell, I would rent out Texas and live in Hell”. One wonders how many Americans would live in Texas in 2019, if air conditioning had not been invented.

    In any case, you should read some old time – translation true – history of the US Mexican war. You will find that the Mexican Government started the war, thought they would win it, and had far reaching war aims, including taking back Texas. If you look at the actual fighting, you will find the US Army won, not because of some technological superiority or massive advantage in numbers, but because our troops were better led and better trained. Scott’s March from Vera Cruz to Mexico City is one the great feats of Generalship in American military history.

They fail to realize that their opinions are not their own but are really the opinion of those that control the media. And they regurgitate that opinion at every opportunity. After all it’s better to have some opinion than to admit you have none through stupidity.

    In short, people are ignorant, dumb as hell, and have no ability to realize when their opinion has been shaped by outside forces. I fully expect that as the last Jewish boot is crushing the life out of the last white generation most of them will be screaming for more laws to protect the Jews.

    The US had NOTHING to do with Mexico’s loss of Texas, other than supplying the place with anglos that the Mexicans themselves thought were more industrious than their own compatriots. Any Mexican (that is non-indio since the Spanish/Mexicans were notoriously racist) could get land grants in the northern Mexican states. Few bothered to take it up.

    Santa Ana declared himself dictator and tore up the Mexican Constitution and a number of Mexican states revolted. Only Texas succeded. Since Santa Ana WAS the government his surrender and peace treaty was legal. Later the reconstituted Mexican government cried that it wasn’t legal since the people’s representatives did not ratify it.

    Texas was in negotiations to be annexed by the US. Mexico threatened war with the US if they did so because they were attempting to raise an army and take it back. Mexico had a larger European trained army and assumed they would beat the US and take back not only Texas but Lousianna that they thought really belonged to them because it had been part of the Spanish Main and was split off due to the squabbles in Europe.

    Once the annexation happened, Polk put troops in an area claimed by both countries. The US claimed Texas extended to the Rio Grande and the Mexicans the Neuces River – the Neuces strip. The Mexicans fired on these troops when they refused to leave and the war was started. Don’t start a war you cannot win when the other guy wants your land should have been words to live by but Mexican pride and stupidity got in the way.

    Yeah the American seizure of Mexico’s unoccupied territories was sordid. Mexico had afterall been a sovereign nation for about 25 years. The northern territories were sparsely settled and dominated by Commanches and Apaches. Mexicans could barely travel throughout these areas and hope to keep their scalps. Without American control these territories might have been flourishing centers of arts and innovations, some might say. Alas they had to settle for paved roads, potable water and decent hygiene all ruled by oppressive gringos with their gringo laws and papers.

    By the way, is anyone advocating an invasion of Mexico? Don’t think so although Fred is apparently itching for a fight. Some of us happen to like the people and the culture. Don’t want to be like Mexicans, and prefer they stay in their country, but they are unique and interesting. Bordering the US elevates Mexicans far above most Spanish speakers. Some of us would like to see greater Mexican prosperity. Their criminal element can be troublesome and something should be done about it. Mexicans might not be up to the task.

    President Trump’s problem is that he really sucks at doing the job Candidate Trump promised. You don’t hire people who are swamp insiders and dead-set against your policies.

Surely it occurs to you that any harm that befalls expats actively trying to praise the supposed safety of the great Mexicant people could only be an incredible exercise in irony.

    Let’s share some more great features of this nation:

    https://nypost.com/2019/10/29/mexican-authorities-find-over-40-skulls-at-altar-in-den-of-suspected-drug-traffickers/

    Mexican authorities have found dozens of human skulls, bones and even a fetus in a glass jar next to an altar in the den of suspected drug traffickers.

    Prosecutors in Mexico City said 42 skulls, 40 jaw bones and 31 “long” bones — probably from arms or legs — were discovered last week at a property in the neighborhood of Tepito, were 31 people were arrested on suspicion of drug cartel activity.

    A judge later ordered 27 of the suspects released.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kiki_Camarena

    Camarena, who was suspected of being the source of the information, was abducted in broad daylight on February 7, 1985, by corrupt Mexican officials working for the major drug traffickers in Mexico.

    Camarena was tortured at a ranch over a 30-hour period, then murdered. His skull was punctured by a metal object, and his ribs were broken. He may have been injected with drugs, most likely to ensure that he remained conscious while being tortured…the DEA went as far as to detain two suspects, Humberto Álvarez Machaín, the physician who allegedly prolonged Camarena’s life so the torture could continue, and Javier Vásquez Velasco; both were taken by bounty hunters to the United States.

    And you see, as the neighbors of one of the classic states of Reconquista, I would say that a history of fighting Santa Anna, Pancho Villa and whatever new name tin bit moron that inevitably comes over, having to go in and kill the latest incarnation of incompetent warlord is due for the course for Texans.

    And whatever those scumbags think of the gringos? I don’t know, but they can’t seem to win with a 30x advantage in numbers, so why should anyone care about what they think? Maybe this gives them 1/30th of the value of an opinion.

    Ron, it’s a question of conflicting national mythologies. From the standpoint of Manifest Destiny, the United States had divine sanction to take the northern half of Mexico. The development of the current idea of the US as the Indispensable Nation can be traced back to Manifest Destiny, and taking northern Mexico was an early step toward the empire we find ourselves saddled with today. This is the cultural prism through which we view these historical events, coming to the conclusion it wasn’t the worst international crime of the last 500 years. It is within an American context that we can think this.

    Had you been raised in Mexico, I suspect you would not have expressed the question in quite the same way. The loss of half it’s land to a militaristic, belligerent northern neighbor is more, far more, than a Mexican national embarrassment or distress over a curtailed cartographic appearance. Rather it represents a national catastrophe, a seminal historical moment, really the defining event of Mexican history. It doesn’t matter how Americans might think there are worse crimes than taking low population density land, from the standpoint of Mexico, it only matters how Mexicans interpret these events and incorporate them into their national identity.

    One of Fred’s points is that due to this history, a modern US invasion of Mexico would instantly galvanize the population to resist the invaders/occupiers.

    If AMLO were to invite the Americans into Mexico, he would be lynched. Few Americans are aware of how much the United States is hated in Latin America, and for that matter in most of the world. They don’t know of the long series of military interventions, brutal dictators imposed and supported, and economic rapine. Somoza, Pinochet, the Mexican-American War, detachment of Panama from Colombia, bombardment of Veracruz, Patton’s incursion–the list could go on for pages. The Mexican public would look upon American troops not as saviors but as invaders. Which they would be.

    Indians never owned anything but their horses and squaws. Property rights have always been beyond them. To add just a bit to this discussion of Texas and Mexico 150 years back, I will relate a few things I learned from the book Empire of the Summer Moon by Sam Gywnne. The Comanches were the best horse riders the world has ever seen. The whole point in life of the tribe (5 tribes, really) was for the men to wage war and steal or capture horses. Some chiefs owned over aa thousand. That’s what they lived for.

    These savage Indians had controlled most of the southern plains, including most of Texas. The first settlers in eastern Texas were first white men to fear these people. However, the Comanches made forays well into Mexico, and the Spanish didn’t know anymore about how to fight them than the isolated settlers in Texas. There’s a lot more to it, but basically, had it not been for Sam Colt’s revolver and the formation of the Texas Rangers with their newly-learned tactics to use horses not just to GET TO battle, but IN battle, these lands may have been abandoned. The Comanches would have torn-ass down to Mexico plenty more and perhaps run the Spanish out of all northern Mexico.

    Who owned the land first? Who built the country? That’s probably a better question. It is too bad, as the line goes, that the Mexicans ended up with the part without the paved roads.

    .

    * Peak Stupidity has a review of this excellent book in 3 parts – Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3. BTW, the book is not biased against the Comanches – the author relates to both sides of the conflict between them and the white American settlers.

    ‘… Ignoring all other concerns, black markets will continue to undercut the prices of legal and regulated sellers. Cartels, for that matter, don’t even exclusively get their profits from drugs…’

    Yeah, but the question tends to boil down to undercut by how much?

    Take the moving business I used to run. I charged $64 for two men and a truck. I was licensed, and paid all the myriad taxes and fees and insurance premiums that came with that.

    Now, I used to calculate that I could have charged $50 an hour and made just about as much money if I’d just run everything under the table.

    Law enforcement was lax enough that it wouldn’t have been too difficult to do that, either. The real question is could I have charged much more than $50 an hour if I had operated illegally. After all, if people hire an unlicensed mover, they expect to pay less.

    So I stayed legal. Not because I thought much of all the requirements and fees; just because there wasn’t much to be gained by not complying. There was no reason to think my net would have improved at all.

    It’s interesting how many Mormon haters there are. I don’t find the faith particularly attractive, but I don’t see any reason to hate them.

    Is it “hate”? For myself, it’s just the contempt one feels for an adult who believes in the Tooth Fairy, Santa Claus, or Planet Kolob and the magic underwear. These people are retards, nothing more. I admire what they’ve done with Salt Lake City and Utah generally – clearly they’re otherwise decent folks, just complete retards on their mythology (in other words they’re only a variation on the stupid that their white cousins display in worshiping a JewGod).

    Which is worse? Morons believing in Planet Kolob and magic underwear or Catholics believing that tasteless crackers and grape juice are literally tasty morsels of JewGod flesh and blood eaten in ritualistic cannibalistic fashion?

    Your “hate” is the same thing that socialists/communists/progressives lob at us crackers who think Africans must be repatriated to Africa. It’s not hate, just recognition of the reality that Africans aren’t compatible with western civilization. Morons & JewGod worshippers are simply too stupid to be trusted with the levers of power. A President Mittens Romney would have repurposed NASA to find and “return” to Planet Kolob while wearing the magic underwear instead of a pressurized space suit..

    Except that it was another battle in the race war coming soon to you.

    Except it isn’t really – Mexicans are dumb and placid enough that they (despite being mostly mesoamerican aborigines) proudly speak the language of and worship the JewGod of their conquistadors. There won’t be a race war with the Indians, nor will there be one with negroes beyond their asymmetrical terrorist attacks on individual honkies. An attack by one local crime syndicate on another in a foreign country doesn’t portend anything of significance here. The lesson we should learn is that we need a secure border to keep Mexico’s crime problems in Mexico.

    Allende wasn’t a communist

    He was a democratic socialist and Marxist who was on very friendly terms with the Chilean communist party. There’s almost no daylight between the two.

    Allende was only elected with 36% of the vote, so he did not have widespread support and a popular mandate to govern from the Chilean people.

    https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/pinochet-was-a-vile-fascist-but-allende-was-no-hero-1179768.html
    Within months of Allende taking power, armed gangs of leftist thugs invaded homes and took over factories. It was all done with the active encouragement of Castro, which saw Allende’s Chile as the new beachhead for Cuban-style Communism throughout Latin America. By 1972, while the Soviet Union was awarding Allende the Lenin Peace Prize, Chilean society was in meltdown.

    You can argue against the CIA supported coup against Allende but the fact remains that Allende did not have a popular mandate from the Chilean people given that over 60% voted against him and he was not a warm, fuzzy and magnanimous character and the George Washington of Chile.

  241. I don’t know how hard it would be to subdue Mexico, but I have always thought Mexico was much closer to the profile of a country needing a “regime-change” war than any of the middle-eastern countries we invade to please Israel. Mexico is unstable, corrupt, lawless, threatens us, and refuses to take our legitimate interests seriously. It’s seriously ironic that we put up with so much insolence from Mexico while furiously scolding the Muslims / Arabs for wanting to run their own countries.

    An invasion of Mexico would be a brilliant slap at the neocons, launching an invasion while ignoring their preferred enemies. Of course, that’s not a good reason to get people killed.

    I don’t think the Mexicans would be anywhere near as hard to defeat as the wily and disciplined Vietnamese. Just tell the Mexicans we’ll grab their blue-eyed elite’s loot and throw a party for them.

  242. I took the following comment from a Spanish Youtube channel and translated it to English. This comment made me search the web for information regarding the LeBaron family and the Mexican Mormons.

    These people are not Morman, it’s considered a cult and have a long and detailed history of criminal activity. I also attached website that published a letter that was written by a LeBaron cult member currently serving 4 life sentences for murder and writes about marijuana, cocaine trafficking and auto theft.

    The Translation:
    Circulating on the Internet: “I do not justify the death of innocent children and women at all, the criminal groups are very cowardly, BUT THE LEADER OF THIS MORMON CULT, JOEL LEBARON SOTO AND MANY OF HIS CHILDREN SUCH AS BENJAMIN whom they executed in 2008, for being a narco and Julián Lebaron, and his brother Joel Lebaron and Daniel Lebaron whom they also executed for being a narco years ago in Sonora, have DECADES dedicated to drug trafficking, and that is well known by many people in the municipalities of Buenaventura and Galeana, Lebaron etc. In addition to committing many abuses and theft against many local people, such as the dispossession of land, exploitation of clandestine aquifer wells to the detriment of hundreds and hundreds of peasants etc. Even the mother of former deputy Alex Lebaron González, Ms. María González was detained for drug trafficking in the City of Juarez from approx 2002 to 2011. And since 2009 they have a federal police escort of about 50 agents granted by the federal government in the wake of Benjamin’s execution. The Lebaron family “victimized”, and committed countless agressions such as hitting people, disarming of the municipal policemen in Galeana, Lebaron even hit the municipal police etc. In fact, in the municipality of Galeana, the Lebaron family is known as “the Galeana Cartel” and they are repudiated by many people. 3 years ago Joel Lebaron was accused of ordering a hit on a man named Cruz because he was one of the few who did not leave their arbitrariness, and Mr. Cruz sued Joel Lebaron, one day before starting the trial for the lawsuit Mr. Cruz, was executed, and everyone knows that the intellectual author was JOEL. THEY WERE SOTO etc. And many more things that could be told of this Lebaron family and for which there are already several similar things that happen to them as a result of their Illicit activities. In addition to creating news worthy of reports nationwide, but as they are gringos and have the backing of the US government,”It puts pressure on the Mexican government to protect and help these families in everything, they do nothing and do what they want for decades in Mexico.”

    The Criminal LeBaron Family in the news!

    https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/cultbustersgalactica/church-of-the-lamb-of-god-ervil-lebaron-t126.html

    One of the Lebaron men was the father and grandfather of one of the victims…You go figure that one out! Who really knows who killed these people! Why were they not on paved roads? I’m Mexican and when I drive in Mexico I never go down the dirt roads that cut across the land. Everyone knows who uses those roads.. Traffickers to avoid check points! White people with blue eyes make the best drug mules, they hardly ever get checked!

    Most of you people don’t have a clue what is going on in Mexico and Latin America as far as the NeoLiberal train ride goes. That shit is coming to a halt, right now as you can see by the news. Its all about oil fellas, the oil you dumb fucks allowed to be sold to China in one big fucking con.

The US has no Fucking oil, the Fracking Companies just announced they are halting their oil production because it is not cost effective anymore. Mexico canceled all oil contracts signed by the previous corrupt administration and is putting those motherfuckers in jail.

    What needs to happen is for the US to decriminalize _all_ drugs that are currently illegal North of the US/Mexico border. Most likely, the drug cartels would then disappear, almost overnight.

    You are absolutely correct, of course. Getting rid of the criminality aspect is the most important step to getting some control of the enormous drug problem, that in some way blights most of us.

    It has been glaringly obvious for decades that criminalisation doesn’t work, but there are still too many vested interests standing in the way of legalisation, which seems unlikely to happen at all soon, if ever.

    The obvious parallel was the prohibition era and the crime fest that went with along with it, but our lawmakers don’t ever seem able to learn much from history.

I’d think you guys would be proud of having snuck on of your boys into power without a violent revolution.

    If you believe the treaty the Mexicans signed with the Americans was illegal, then the same argument can be made about the treaty the Spanish signed with the revolutionary Mexicans who seized control of their lands. And some Comanche or Apache can probably challenge the rights you believe you hold with that old deed of yours. Although if the deed you hold is a legal document, and what you write is true, it’d make an interesting case if you tried to sue to get control of the property. I know a guy in NYC who just gained control of some waterfront property that had been deeded to his family a hundred years ago and he just signed a settlement for some life changing money.

    A few short years ago most of his opinions seemed pretty well thought out and reasonable.

It’s hard to believe he can write that with a straight face.

  256. “Just think of Mexico as a beautiful Mexican Woman, who if you treat her nice she will be loyal to you and do things that make you feel good . . .”

    What utter nonsense. If she is so honorable you’ll have to explain why she is breaking into someone else’s home and stealing not only the contents of another’s wallet and purse but attempting to claim ownership of their home as well.

    She is beautiful, so you say, but the contents of her heart are riddled with deceipt and corruption, as the give and take relationship between her cartels makes clear.

    She doesn’t even respect her own children that anyone thinks she should be trusted with theirs is farce.

    There’s every reason to remain abstinate in her presence and even more reason to keep her at arms length as “treating her nice” means allowing her to steal from you with a smile on your face for the priviledge.

    My wife and I visited the place a few years back, and this matches my observations.

    I’m not inclined to favor socialism, and Allende was hardly a saint, but the rich seem to have got a bit too firmly into the saddle in 1973, and you can see the effects. When some perfectly respectable old guy has to play a guitar for pennies outside a restaurant, maybe the social security net isn’t all it could be. We stayed a night with some family that ran a wood carving shop — surely lower-middle class prosperity. The shower was some pathetic thing that used a light socket as a heat source. A trickle of luke-warm water — voila.

    It’s intangible and of course most of the time people are busy with other things and finally, we were only there for three weeks or something, but on the one hand, there seems to be an air of ‘we’ve got it and you don’t,’ while on the other, there’s a grinding sense of deprivation and resentment. 1973 is still on everybody’s mind — more than forty years later! — and you can picture revolution stalking the streets, red in tooth and claw.

    Well, there you go. Whatever the logical shortcomings of their beliefs, Baptists, Catholics, and so on don’t come in for the kind of unreasoning hostility Mormons seem to inspire.

    I’ve long had a mild interest in reading more about the Mormons. The difficulty is that the literature seems to break into two categories; decidedly defensive and unbalanced apologias for the faith from Mormons themselves, and demented ‘the truth about Mormons’ hate literature from Mormon haters.

    Of course Mormonism doesn’t make sense. As far as I’m concerned, no faith does — although there’s a decided variation in the care with which conclusions are drawn from first principles. However, if you can’t see why you should believe God is there in the first place — much less a caring God who actually gives a damn what you do — then it’s all ultimately tripe.

    Patrcius,

    Even when the British were waging the Opium Wars, everyone (almost everyone) knew it was wrong. The British banned opiates in their own country (of course). Internationally, the trade in Opium was known as the Poison trade. A common myth of the time was that anyone who profited from Opium would die a slow, horrible death. That’s not true. Opium dealers died in bed just like most other folks. However, the myth is revealing. People knew the Opium was evil.

    I wrote earlier that almost everyone knew that the Opium trade was evil. Of course, there were notable exceptions. For example, the chief British official in China, Sir John Bowring, stated:

    “Free trade is Jesus Christ, and Jesus Christ is free trade.”

    Bowring is notable for having started the second Opium War that included the burning of the Chinese Summer Palace.

  263. Fred is attacking a straw-man. The U.S. (with or without Trump) isn’t about to invade Mexico.

    However, Fred makes other mistakes as well. The terrain of Mexico (parts of it) may well be formidable. However, Narcotraficante are not hardened Marxist guerillas either. They tend to be city people with a taste for cell phones, Email, fancy cars, fancy houses, fancy restaurants, international travel, etc. In other words, they are vulnerable in many ways.

    Could the U.S. help the Mexican government crack down on them? Of course, it could. Electronic intelligence is a something the U.S. is (notoriously) good at. Would this provoke a material backlash in Mexico? Not very likely.

    There is evidence that the U.S. sent troops (Special Forces) into Columbia at the height of the Narco Wars down there. There is even evidence (but not proof) that an American sniper killed Pablo Escobar. Adverse reaction in Columbia? Roughly zero.

    Note that the US. did actually invade (quite successfully) a country like Mexico a long time ago. The U.S. military conquered the Philippines in the first years of the 20th century. The battle was bloody and U.S. tactics were grim, however the U.S. did prevail.

    Yeah, but (a) at the time, the prevailing morality was a lot more congenial to such enterprises. Of course backward and brown natives should come under the tutelage of more advanced and whiter peoples.

    (b) even so, there was considerable revulsion and a retreat from the tactics we found it necessary to employ. To salve our consciences, we swiftly had to adopt (and follow through on) a rationale that the Philippines would be granted independence in the relatively near future.

    (c) the Filipinos had at best a nascent national consciousness and sense of identity. Mexicans are quite clear on the concept that they are citizens of a Mexican nation.

    For all these reasons, while we might have been able to subdue the Philippines then, I’m certain we couldn’t subdue Mexico now.

    We should have annexed it in 1848 — when its national consciousness was restricted to a small elite. It would have been fairly easy, almost everyone would have been better off, and the world now would be a better place.

    That is interesting regarding the Grant quote ‘those who had property, were our friends’.

    The US Commanding General during the Mexican American War, Winfield Scott, said the exact same thing in an 1852 speech excerpted and linked below from pgs 18-19 of the 1853 book The New Rome.

    [The Majority Rights link below at comment #12 has a more comprehensive excerpt of the speech as well as elaboration upon the book it appeared in if a person doesn’t want to check out the book link itself.]

    Scott goes even further and claims that powerful elements of Mexico’s elites had attempted a million dollar outright bribe if he could somehow arrange the annexation of the whole of Mexico, but, that he declined the offer.

    My guess is the particular elites and hangers on Grant and Scott spoke of tended to often be the Mexico City centered ones, and hardly representative of the everyday Mexican citizen and their desires.

    Without question, there were very powerful people in the US as well who were pushing the complete annexation of the entirety of Mexico in accordance with the ideological rationalization known as ‘Manifest Destiny, a major driving force of the war’.

    The linked 1853 book goes further than ‘Manifest Destiny’ and advocates the United States ‘annexing’ the entire world to create the ‘New Rome’, a future global empire to be dominated by the US and UK.

    Like Grant, I think the Mexican-American War was a war the United States should not of fought, amongst others.

    ‘The overture [to annex Mexico] was made to me by private [Mexican] citizens — men of wealth and prominence.’

    ‘An offer was made to me, to remain in Mexico, and govern it. The impression which generally prevails, that the proposition emanated from Congress, is an erroneous one.’

    ‘The overture was made to me by private citizens, men of wealth and prominence. During our stay in Mexico, our system of government and police was established, which, as the inhabitants themselves confessed, gave security (for the first time, perfect and absolute security ) to person and property.’

    ‘About two-fifths of all the branches of [Mexico’s] government, including nearly a majority of the members of Congress and the Executive, were quite desirous of having that country annexed to ours.’

    ‘They knew that upon the ratification of the treaty of peace, nineteen out of twenty of the persons belongiug to the American army would stand disbanded, and would be absolutely free from all obligations to remain in the army another moment.’

    ‘They supposed, if they could obtain my services, I would retain these twelve or fifteen thousand men, and that I could easily obtain one hundred thousand more from home. The hope was, that it would immediately cause annexation.’

    ‘They offered me one million of dollars as a bonus, with a salary of 250,000 per annum, and five responsible individuals to become security in any bank in New York which I might name. It would be so arranged that I might get it in five days.’

    If you read my post to Rurik, you would know that I do not have that type of sick mentality as to blame children for what their parents do. But I do blame the women for allowing daddy, uncle brother or cousin to used their daughters like a sex toy. Do you remember the sect that was in Texas, and the leader went into hiding? When they got all those little girls out of there they were so many of them pregnant. If your stealing land, damning water sources, digging illegal wells and it effects the folks down stream you’re not being a good neighbor. If you work with the Cartels because you have blond hair and blue eyes and no one searches your car at the border, and when you return, the money is short, you’re not being a good neighbor. When you bring in weapons and stolen cars for your cartel buddies and stiff them, your not being a good neighbor.

    When they killed Benjamin and who he was with, they went looking for him asking for their weapons, but they had left. So they took their younger brother and told his wife to call him and tell him they wanted the million dollars or they were going to kill the kid. Benjamin came back and met them, they let the kid go, Benjamin didn’t have the money so they shot him and who ever he was with.

    If you ride around with your 25 kids instead of sending them to the US and you are having problems with drug cartels you are putting them in extreme danger of being killed. The truck was not set on fire, the bullets hit the gas tank. When they drove up I’m sure they didn’t know who exactly was driving or if kids were in there until it was too late. Look at how many kids survived, 7 -8 they could have chased them down if that was what they wanted…they killed all the adults.

    Some dumb ass said that the Cartel Members, like nice cars, boats, women, etc. That they can not survive in the mountains with US special forces. I’ve got one answer for him, Cartels have a leader and his Sicarios (Killers), the Sicarios are mostly ex or deserted Mexican Special Forces trained in North Carolina, USA. They are not some faggot, dress and sandals wearing rag head! If there are any ex-military here they will confirm this. Take a look at the Mexican Military, they are no slouches..

    I’m a great admirer of John Calhoun despite his octoroon children. His arguments against annexing Mexico were excellent. Of course, as a southerner it was against his best interests. Slavery was outlawed in the Spanish colonies by Isabella in the 1490s. When the American immigrants started bringing in black slaves, Mexico again passed a law outlawing slavery in 1827.

    Annexing Mexico would have greatly increased the anti slavery states and influence . The Kansas Nebraska pre civil war about slavery west of the Missouri Mississippi was already heating up by 1848.

    The fact that TPTB of Mexican asked General Scott to be King and or offered to be annexed is taught in the Mex schools. There are also shows on the Mex history channel about it.

    The standard Mexican joke is that if only America had annexed us how great it would be.

    Your observations are mostly correct. The U.S. did agree to give the Philippines its independence in 1936 (more than 30 years after the U.S. conquest) to take effect in 1946. In 1946, the U.S. flag came down and the Philippines flag went up. The fact that Japan had conquered the Philippines in the interim and the U.S. had removed the Japanese didn’t change the schedule.

    But I agree that the world has changed since 1900 (when the U.S. conquered the Philippines). From Wikipedia

    “As a consequence of this order, Smith became known as “Howling Wilderness Smith”. He further ordered Waller to kill all persons who were capable of bearing arms and in actual hostilities against the United States forces. When queried by Waller regarding the age limit of these persons, Smith replied that the limit was ten years of age.”

    You are actually understating your case. Apparently, the Catholic church in Mexico favored annexation (by the USA). Given that in 1848, the US was a somewhat strongly anti-Catholic country, that is amazing. The depths of US anti-Catholic sentiment (in 1848) could not have been unknown to the Catholic hierarchy in Mexico. However the situation in Mexico (poor governance) was so desperate that annexation by a religiously hostile foreign power was seen as a positive.

    The pro slavery southern states would have resisted annexing anti slavery Mexico. Everyone knew the problem would have to be decided soon. Most thought it would be decided in congress; slave state senators and representatives against anti slave state senators and representatives. The rush was on in the western territories. Would pro or anti slavery settlers win in the new western territories and states was the big issue of the 1840s 50s. Remember John Brown, Lawrence Kansas and Quantrill’s raiders?

    There was that Golden Circle southern dream. The south would secede. The south would somehow take over Mexico, Central America including Columbia Cuba and whatever Caribbean islands that could be grabbed. The Hispanic Indians would all become peaceful slaves. The Hispanic upper classes would not resist the take over. The capital of the new and powerful country would be Havana.

    Incest including father daughter is far more prevalent in Mexico and among Mex Americans than Whites. A horrible Mexican and Mex American custom is the boarding house. A woman runs it. The boarders are grown men. The woman and her children do the housework, cooking and laundry. The women’s daughters are sexually available to the boarders. Many get pregnant at 11-14. If the girls don’t abort, the father gets an anchor baby and the taxpayers get another life long welfare burden.

    Mexican incest and child molestation is far, far more widespread than it is in White America. Among the Indians, it’s accepted.

    Another nasty child molestation thing among muddle class Mexicans is that the men of the family routinely use the maids including the child maids for sexual relief. It’s customary and accepted. Often the middle class family buys the maid from her poverty stricken Indio family at age 9 or so and she’s soon used by the men and boys of the family.

    How dare you insult me by informing me that Germany had a parliamentary system. Think you’re the only person aware of that? That’s why Hitler was appointed instead of running for election. Normally, in a parliamentary system the majority party puts up the candidate for prime minister chancellor or whatever the office is called.

    You can check the election of late 1932. I think it was in December. There were 2 major parties. They were basically regional; southwest vs northeast. The Nazis won a few representatives a very minority representation. It was certainly not enough for the National Socialists to have a chancellor.

    Most important, in the standard parliamentary system the prime minister chancellor is appointed from among the elected representatives to the parliament Reichstag whatever it might be called Hitler wasn’t one of the National Socialists elected to the Reichstag.

    Elected President Hindenburg didn’t appoint Hitler chancellor till March 1933. Obviously a lot of things went on very quietly to influence Hindenburg.

    From what I can find the Lebaron women were not allowing their kids to be used as sexual playthings by family members. That sounds like Mexican media propaganda to sully the victims reputations. There was that one case in your video to Rurik but all that shows is that one Lebaron family member was implicated in the molestation and impregnation of his daughter.

    Plenty of latino males molest female family members here in America and no doubt in Mexico, but of course we’re not supposed to notice since that’s racist and might make people like Fredrico Reedriguez really mad.

    You sort of lost me but I can’t find anything showing that the Lebaron’s were assisting the drug cartels or ripping them off. They have a long history of opposing them and defending themselves and their communities against the bloodthirsty cartels. Benjamin Lebaron was an anti-cartel activist who was tortured and murdered because of his activism which may have led to the prior arrest of 25 cartel members.

    This attack appears to be deliberate and retaliatory by the cartels to show the Lebaron’s who’s boss in may-hee-co. It was highly unlikely to be a case of mistaken identity given the ongoing tension and conflict between the two sides.

    The Zetas, Mexico’s most violent cartel were all ex-special forces that were chosen by Salinas de Gotari to take down the Zapatista movement. During their training in the US, the Zapatista movement gained a lot of attention worldwide because of their internet capabilities. Reporters from all over the world began arriving in Mexico to visit and interview Comandante Marcos and basically camped out there. By the time the Zetas returned, De Gortari was advised not to dispatch them to the area for fear of creating an international incident.

    The group called the GAFES returned to their base and one of those soldiers met the leader of the Gulf Cartel who offered him a job and told him to recruit other soldiers. He went back and brought with him almost every one of those elite soldiers. The Beltran Leyva Cartel was one of the first to recruit soldiers and had Generals on their payroll. There were and still are Israeli commandos that train recruits that are not Military. These people don’t shoot like the Taliban, from the hip or hands up in the air. No these people shoot stock to the shoulder, eye on the sights, moving forward.

    I know what I’m telling you, I live here in the heart of Zeta territory. I have not been in any sort of situation, because I’m a big guy, born here and have a little rep from my younger days.

    Most of that stuff is in the Spanish sites responses from people that live in the area. I translated this comment, kind of written funny but left it alone.

    Circulating on the Internet: “I do not justify the death of innocent children and women at all, the criminal groups are very cowardly, BUT THE LEADER OF THIS MORMON CULT, JOEL LEBARON SOTO AND MANY OF HIS CHILDREN SUCH AS BENJAMIN whom they executed in 2008, for being a narco and Julián Lebaron, and his brother Joel Lebaron and Daniel Lebaron whom they also executed for being a narco years ago in Sonora, have DECADES dedicated to drug trafficking, and that is well known by many people in the municipalities of Buenaventura and Galeana, Lebaron etc. In addition to committing many abuses and theft against many local people, such as the dispossession of land, exploitation of clandestine aquifer wells to the detriment of hundreds and hundreds of peasants etc. Even the mother of former deputy Alex Lebaron González, Ms. María González was detained for drug trafficking in the City of Juarez from approx 2002 to 2011. And since 2009 they have a federal police escort of about 50 agents granted by the federal government in the wake of Benjamin’s execution. The Lebaron family “victimized”, and committed countless agressions such as hitting people, disarming of the municipal policemen in Galeana, Lebaron even hit the municipal police etc. In fact, in the municipality of Galeana, the Lebaron family is known as “the Galeana Cartel” and they are repudiated by many people. 3 years ago Joel Lebaron was accused of ordering a hit on a man named Cruz because he was one of the few who did not leave their arbitrariness, and Mr. Cruz sued Joel Lebaron, one day before starting the trial for the lawsuit Mr. Cruz, was executed, and everyone knows that the intellectual author was JOEL. THEY WERE SOTO etc. And many more things that could be told of this Lebaron family and for which there are already several similar things that happen to them as a result of their Illicit activities. In addition to exercising a situation worthy of reports nationwide, but as they are gringos and have the backing of the US government,”It puts pressure on the Mexican government to protect and help these families in everything, they do nothing and do what they want for decades in Mexico.

    These couple of paragraphs were taken from a very long letter written to a website and will leave you the url below it. The letter is at the end pages.

    Because our legal business was not profitable enough to support the family and pay for the planned murders, it was decided that it should be abandoned in favor of full-time criminal activity. We had connections in the United States and Mexico so we started smuggling marijuana to finance the group. All went well until my main U.S. buyer introduced me to someone I knew to be a narcotics agent as a buyer of a large quantity of cocaine. That brought our drug smuggling to a halt.

    Our next criminal endeavor was stealing trucks and taking them to Mexico and selling them to ranchers, farmers and drug dealers. It was during this period of economic prosperity that it was decided that it was time to kill our enemies. From May 1987 to June 1988, our group carried out ten murders, including the assassinations of all the leaders of the California, Denver, and Houston groups.

    According to the 1919 constitution the Reichtagasabgeordneters were to be elected by universal voting from 661 Reichstag districts.

    Hitler was not elected to the Reichstag to fill the political office of Reichtagasabgeordneter. He was not elected to the office of chancellor either. He was never elected to any political office.

    I don’t hate white people, I hate how white people act, but not all of them most of my best friends in the US were white, Quisenberry, Reeves, Underwood, Stokely, etc. I only had one Mexican friend. I never saw myself as racists, until today. I fucking got pissed at the European sell outs in Bolivia throwing out a democratically elected president and they went after the indigenous people, beating and burning their homes. They took down an indigenous Bolivian president that inherited a country in debt that the previous European Bolivian president resigned from because he had no money left. He had handed the country’s resources to foreign companies and quit. Evo Morales was told he couldn’t do any better and was put into office.

    Evo Morales took what that POS left him and turned it around, Bolivia had 6% economic growth every year except this year was lower. If an Indigenous person is doing a good job it’s not enough, they would rather destroy or give away their country than have someone they believe is inferior run it. The same way people on here feel the darker shades of people are stupid. But they are wrong because the LeBarons and most white farmers and rancher here, don’t go to school because they work on their land. The Mexicans that immigrate north also work the lands and have poor education, but not the Mexicans here.

    Anyway, I’m white of Spanish European blood, I think I just hate fucking people in general…

    Ignoring all other concerns, black markets will continue to undercut the prices of legal and regulated sellers. Cartels, for that matter, don’t even exclusively get their profits from drugs.

    You are obviously wrong on both counts. Remember something in the US called Prohibition? Which caused the rise of violence and organized crime? After it ended: there was no market for bootleg booze at all.

    And yes, the cartels for that matter do exclusively get their profits from drugs. Exclusively. Oh yeah, there is a bit of profit from getting people to and across the border. But we know how to fix that don’t we?

    And if you are thinking about replying that organized crime in America continued after Prohibition ended, you are forgetting that just after it ended Harry Anslinger succeeded in starting a new Prohibition: against heroin and marijuana, while the same women who pushed for Temperance were successful in making sure prostitution was kept illegal. The Mafia went into both businesses eagerly (as well as other prohibitions, i.e., cigarette taxes, loan sharking, store protection extortion). The answer to this is again clear: legalize these prohibited materials and practices and the need for organized crime and cartels in Mexico disappear.

    As for store keeper protection extortion rackets (like they currently have in Mexico), arm every citizen.

    These solutions are so simple and so clearly proven effective, it is astounding that anyone is against them and that everyone is not shouting them out. It’s been 80 to 110 years since these things were made illegal in the United States. Time for an end to it. Mexico could lead the ending. Or it can follow the US ending it, which will cut the cartels out completely.

    Bootleggers in the 1920s were out of business when Prohibition was ended in 1933. Poof! Gone. They didn’t keep on producing and selling booze “under the table.” No one wanted their product any more when distillers could produce it legally.

    What problem? The US is involved in the drug trade and has been for over 50 years with enormous profits for the rich. The US became a police state. Millions of people became slaves in US prisons. The DEA and other cops exist to arrest the competition. US troops guard the poppy fields in Afghanistan. US Banksters launder the proceeds. The “drug war” will never be won because that would mean certain defeat. Mexico has been defeated for over 100 years. Without criminal proceeds flowing through our “allies” they might have to cut TRICARE for the retired military commies – which of course includes recruiter Fred Reed.

    The problem is that the house slaves supported the War on Drugs, the War on Viet Nam, the War on Korea, the War on Iraq, the War on Syria, the War on Libya, the War on Yemen, the War on Somalia, the War on Honduras, the War on Colombia.

    As to “detaching Panama from Colombia”

    Panama became independent from Spain in 1821, and THEN, joined the a group of countries, called the Grand Colombia, consisting of Colombia, Ecuador and Venezuela, for mutual protection, from Spain. This is in the historical archives of countries. Treaties signed by all parties, in black ink and white paper, that you can hold in your hand.

    It isn’t rumor, or a perception, or that it’s a myth.

    But joining with Colombia, didn’t work out, the Colombians “detached” all the good things from Panama and never gave back. Panama was a neglected backwater, and while Colombia advanced, Panama was left with muddy, mosquito-ridden streets, disease -ridden, and NO SCHOOLS. And on top of that, the Colombians had their PETTY, political WARS, in which they were CONSCRIPTING Panamanian boys, BOYS, of 13 or 14 to fight for them.

    Since 1822, Panamanians tried to get free of the Colombians at least 5 times, in Independence MOvements, but were put down each time.

    Panamanians were in the middle of one such Independence Movement, when the Americans came along, and HELPED THEM. The entry of the U.S. into Panama was God-sent to the Panamanians.
    However, the istmus wasn’t JUST taken, the Americans PAID the Colombians good money. And they Colombians TOOK the money. It wasn’t a case that the Americans just “separated” Panama.

    However, to pay Colombia, for Panama, was a slap in the face for the “man in the street” Panamanians. Because Panama NEVER BELONGED TO Colombia.

    As soon, as the Americans came, the cities were cleaned up, the mud holes were cleared, the mosquitos that carried disease were eradicated, and sewers put in, and potable water brought in.

    Hundreds of schools were opened, both in the cities and the interior of the country, bringing HEALTH, education, and the Modern world, technology and communication, which the Colombians had kept from them.

    For the down -trodden Panamanians, it was a God-sent, in many ways. That was the beginning to the path to the Modern Era, that is seen there today.

    And thank God for that, otherwise,Panama would be in the same state, WORSE, than Colombia is today, AND Mexico.

    To this day, the Colombians go to Panama, and mourn that they don’t still have Panama, because it is so beautiful, and well-kept, orderly and stable. BUT NOT because of them, but because of the American influence.

I think that in another US invasion, some of those soldiers would turn sides and take up arms against the US itself. Let us not forget that in the 1846 war 1,000 Catholic Europeans switched sides and made up the Saint Patrick’s Battalion. This scenario can happen again. The Mexicans that hate Mexico are usually in the Border Patrol and not the military. Furthermore, the US has 30 million people of Mexican descent. That is just another caveat to ponder if the US decides to invade Mexico again.

    And you’re a White Spaniard. Yours are the very people who built Bolivia and are being taxed to death to support Evo’s people.

    Mind you I respect your opinion, but I don’t agree with it. I don’t agree with you that because I am of European blood, I should side with others just because of that. I’m Mexican first and foremost (born here), American second (Grew up and Educated), Latin American third (United by Blood) and European fourth (My roots). And that is the precise order that adhere to when it comes to loyalty. I do not support someone based on color, but on character, conviction and morality.

    President Evo Morales came to power in Bolivia in 2006 amid widespread discontent. The country had been experiencing a long-term economic growth failure, with income per capita in 2005 lower than it was 27 years prior, and privatization efforts had been widely unpopular, including with the indigenous majority. Conflicts over natural resources, most notably the water and gas wars of 2000 and 2003, respectively, led to the resignations of Presidents Gonzalo Sánchez de Lozada in 2003 and Carlos Mesa in 2005.

    The Morales administration marked a dramatic turn-around for the country. The economy began to grow, experiencing its fastest growth in decades. Bolivia increased its sovereignty over economic policy; social spending increased by 45 percent from 2005-2012 and poverty was reduced by 25 percent from 2005-2011. In order to achieve these results, President Morales nationalized the hydrocarbons sector by decree early during his first year in office, allowing his government to engage in effective redistribution and macroeconomic policies that benefited the poorest segments of society.

    Tell me Rich, “what is so corrupt about taking your country’s resources back and selling them to benefit the owners of those resources and not the billionaires who decide what they want to give you”? Does that sound like corruption to you? That sounds like a man with character, conviction and morality!

    Uh, no. Legalization meant that you could buy cheap vodka legally, thus ending completely the market for moonshine, except for a few hillbillies in the Ozarks. Who would want to buy an unregulated product when a regulated product was available legally. Yes it was as cheap or cheaper. But the legality was the pivot.

    We still have a huge black market in marijuana in California.

    Black markets come into being when a government introduces so many restrictions, taxes, and regulations so as to restrict legal supply. A black market will come into play at those times. The size of that black market though depends on the level of the restrictions/taxes/regulations. The black market in California is miniscule compared to the black markets for other still-prohibited drugs. When those drugs are legalized the black market will immediately shrink to a shadow of its current state, depending on how much restrictions continue after “legalization.”

    Hoffman probably died like a lot of them do, they get off rehab and forget they have lost the tolerance they had built up over their years of drug use.

    You are wrong as correctly denoted by your use of “probably.” Hoffman died due to his purchase of a batch of heroin that had been enhanced unbeknownst to him. This is the reason for most heroin overdoses not unfamiliarity. Hoffman had been in rehab over a decade before. This had nothing to do with his death. Illegal, unregulated heroin was the sole reason.

    You just made up the last sentence. You were guessing. You guessed wrong. In fact, all your arguments are just speculation and guessing, ignorant of how legalization actually has happened in history (e.g., the end of Prohibition, Portugal, Uruguay, how drugs were used in the 19th century before demonization and consequent criminalization).

    The Masonic Lodge from Nee York City were the ones to bankroll Antonio Lopez de Santana to arrest and kill Emperor Iturbide. Since then many Mexican presidents like Benito Juarez have been Masons.
    Mexico has been a US colony for over 150 years. The CIA runs drugs through Mexico to to bank roll its black ops and US industry is the biggest user of Mexican cheap labor. Yet all this Kabuki theater is what keeps giving Ann Coulter and Tucker Carlson jobs. Trump loves Mexico. It’s his favorite punching bag to beat up and get a few more votes.

    Yes they were. General Winfield Scott wanted to stop Mexican partisans from rising up and attack US supply caravans. Scott had much control over the conduct of his army unlike General Taylor up north. Scott mostly pacified the country side. Up north General Zachary Taylor was having a hell of time squashing bandits.
    The thing about the invading US army, after the armistice was signed, they re-armed the Mexican Army to squash other revolts around Mexico especially in Yucatan. Scott wanted a stable enough government to have negotiations and end the war. A fractured Mexico would not have signed peace since there would have been no central government.

    Anyone using the Guardian is not worth listening to. I’m going to go with Nikki Swift on this one:

    The exact numbers weren’t the only thing that was disputed, however, as Hoffman’s cause of death was also covered by opposing reports. Following a spike in deaths linked to fentanyl-laced heroin, including 22 overdoses in Pittsburgh, Pa. in 2014, Slate noted that this may have the culprit behind Hoffman’s own overdose. As the outlet explained, fentanyl, a prescription drug used for pain relief, is “cheaper and between 50 to 80 times more potent,” which is problematic when an unknowing user administers their usual dose.

    That observation, however, gives no justification for disliking Mormons in particular.

    I wonder if the species of hate directed towards Morons is rooted in the anti-negro history of the cult? If I recall correctly it was only pretty recently that the LDS has accepted negroes into their fold. With negroes being an object of worship for the media and elites, it would make sense. Then again, Jews hate Yeshuans for embracing their (disavowed) messiah so why shouldn’t they hate Morons for embracing their (disavowed) prophet Smith?

    From one Mexican to another…I agree with you wholeheartedly, Juan. I can tell you that this has nothing to do with the Cartels. The DEA works with them and the CIA got them started with the cocaine trade. This Juan is about Oil/Gas and the Energy Reform that the new Mexican President stopped. I was here when the last Zeta leader was extradited to the US, about 4 years ago. As he was being loaded onto the plane a reported asked him. “Now that your going to the US and face their Courts, do you have any to tell the Mexican people?” He looked right at her and said, “Yeah, I want tell them, that we don’t make our “Real” money on drugs, the real money is in Oil and Gas!”

    The Zetas had a juicy deal sending tanker trucks across the border where US Oil companies had barges docked off shore until they were full. Then pull them to Corpus and Houston for refining and sale. I was also here when those trucks were stopped for having fake shipping papers, when a new Customs Agent caught it. US oil services companies were hiding all the offshore theft by not logging in Ships, Tankers that were being loaded with oil right off the rigs. There is a place in Rotterdam that was built to store, refine and sell all stolen oil on a cash basis. They can even radio a loaded ship and send it to refineries anywhere in the world once the load is paid..

    Remember this Juan, Mexico is a Democratic Republic with a Capitalist Based Economic model. The new administration was able to save our Oil, Gas and Electric companies in order to use any profit generated from that sector, to lower light bills, gas prices and cooking fuel, giving the citizens some relief. Education, Health and the Seniors will also see massive new funding, instead of letting the US Oil Billionaires put it in their pocket. Can you imagine if US big Oil had to pay the US for the Oil they’ve sucked out! The US cities would look like Chinese shinny new cities, with new roads, bridges airports and trains. Instead they spend their citizen’s tax dollars fighting wars just to get more oil and give it to the same crooks that sold away the US Strategic Oil Reserves, very cheap.

    The US has very little Oil, the Fracking Companies have started to shut down because getting the oil out is not cost effective. But, I believe they will not try to invade Mexico, and instead use the MSM in the US and Mexico and place blame for Sinaloa and the LeBaron family incidents on the new President. If I know our President he gave Evo Morales diplomatic protection so he could share information on how the US implemented the Coup in Bolivia.

    It is so funny to watch how the government and the MSM here and over there label the Democratically Elected Leaders of countries that don’t kneel to them, Socialists, Leftist, Dictator, Communist, Oppressive, Violators of Human Rights, Failed State, Corrupt, etc. How they demand sanctions and embargoes against them and use whatever means necessary to blame the leaders.

    By reading most of the comments on here they proves they are doing a great job running that fake news. Then they publish an IQ article somewhere that the “White Race” have the highest IQ ever recorded in the History off the World. Everyone else is too stupid to own anything and should be Napalmed, because only they deserve the 40% of the world’s Lithium that’s buried in Bolivia. Or, Venezuela’s massive Oil, Gold and Diamond reserves. Or, Mexico’s massive Oil, Gold, Silver, Copper, Uranium and Iron yet to be extracted.

    Not only will the people not fall for the latest US tricks, but every one will rise up against any US invasion, including the 50 million Latinos in the US. We will bare the brunt of it, until the rest of the world has enough of watching how the US fights its wars. Then one day out of nowhere a huge Russian, Chinese, Iranian Armada will reach the Caribbean and all hell is going be set loose on the only people in the world that have lived bomb free since its existence.

    No one here in Mexico want war, no one in Latin America want war, we just want to work and live happy without interference from our neighbor. US foreign policy towards Latin America, forces them to take a side when you leave them no other option, and right now the only options are Russia and China! A chess game played brilliantly by your Zionist Rulers and the US doesn’t even realize they’re just another fucking pawn in the game!

    Sorry Juan…this is not directed towards you, but reading these comments gets me upset with people that can’t even see a game has been and is being played in “Real Time” on them.

    all this Kabuki theater is what keeps giving Ann Coulter and Tucker Carlson jobs. Trump loves Mexico. It’s his favorite punching bag to beat up and get a few more votes.

    Here’s a news flash:

    White people are not ‘down’ to be colonized and genocided.

    That is why there are a lot of white Americans that appreciate Ann Coulter and Tucker Carlson telling them that, ‘no, you’re not all evil, guilty racists, who must hand over your lands and meager possessions, such as they are, and give them all to deserving people of color, because you’re all evil and guilty racists’.

    F0r the record.

    Mexicans are swell people, and I like them. They’re entitled to Mexico, and all the blessings that Mexico can provide.

    N. Americans, (even evil white ones), are also swell people, and they’re (all of them, and yes, even the evil white ones) entitled to N. America (Canada and the US), and all the blessings that N. America can provide.

    Mexicans and ‘Americans’ can and should trade and mingle, (insofar as they’re inclined) and get along as neighbors. However, if Latin Americans, believe that they’re entitled to the lands and possessions of N. Americans, because N. Americans are too often white, and therefor evil and racist and guilty’, then there’s going to be problems.

    Whitey is not a castrated, guilty and self-loathing race. (all efforts of the ((media and academia))) and race-pimps of La Raza and BLM notwithstanding).

    The idea that it’s going to be simple to colonize him, and take what he has by sheer force of demographic hegemony, is pure folly.

    Yes, the (((leadership))) of the West is committed to whitey’s extermination, that’s true. And the political class are venal traitors, to a man and woman. That’s also true. But the vast, vast majority of whiteys are simply not down with the replacement/genocide program.

    They were sold a bill of goods that celebrating diversity and multiculturalism was the only way they could make amends for their evil genes, and the racism in their black, evil hearts.

    But now that it’s obvious, that it wasn’t about an harmonious utopia with POC and whitey all frolicking in a multicultural love-fest, but rather about putting an end to whitey’s existence, once and for all, that whitey is going to resist this ‘solution’.

    Mock Tucker Carlson all you want, but he has an audience, and he’s spot on correct. The unhinged racist lunacy of the ‘w0ke’ crowd, gibbering their psychotic hatred of all things whitey, is not lost on the white people of the West.

    We were all told that it would be harmony and justice. We weren’t told that in order to achieve this harmony and justice, we would have to agree to go the way of the Dodo bird. That they never mentioned. But now it’s brutally obvious that this is what they have in mind, and so Tucker and Ann are speaking to something very deep and abiding in the human spirit; the will to persevere in the face of existential enemies.

    I suppose we’ll just have to watch it all unfold, but if you think it’s all a done deal, and that whitey is now going to skulk ‘gently into that goodnight’, without a fight, then you’re in for a rude awakening.

    They give subsides, (extorted from the working poor) to Goldman Sachs.

    Billionaire Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway received over a billion dollars in public funded subsidies. The racial supremacist rogue state of Israel receives billions of subsides even as it murders American citizens.

    And then a scumfuck like Bernie Sanders, has the pus nads to stroll into Flint, MI, and peddle his brand of racial hatred, in one of the most pitiful place in the country.

    Flint is a wasteland of poverty and misery. Demographically, it’s about half black and half white, and the poverty is shared by them all. So then comes in Sanders, and this sack of maggot puke tells the people there, that white people don’t know what poverty or police brutality even is. They’re so privileged, that even as they too are forced to drink poisonous sludge out of their water faucets, the poverty and hopelessness and despair, somehow magically doesn’t touch these evil people.

    And then Bernie gets on his private jet to fly to one of his mansions in Lake Champlain, after having sown as much racial hatred and hostility he can, in a place where poor blacks and whites live and work side by side.

    I don’t have words for the contempt I have for our ruling elite, J.G.

    But I will tell you that when I used to see those films of the French crowds cheering when the guillotine blade fell, and the ghoulish head was raised to the thunderous celebration, I remember being appalled at the thought..

    The Masonic Lodge from Nee York City were the ones to bankroll Antonio Lopez de Santana to arrest and kill Emperor Iturbide. Since then many Mexican presidents like Benito Juarez have been Masons…Mexico has been a US colony for over 150 years.

    I’m quite impressed by your rather comprehensive knowledge of the Mexican-American War and of it’s Freemasonry aspects as well.

    As you likely know, Freemasonry has quite a thing for the continental super-state of which the United States of [North] America was it’s first installment.

    This helps in large part to explain the multiple attempts by the US to conquer Canada (ie 1776 Revolution, War of 1812) and the US invasion of Mexico (including Mexico City and environs) during the Mex-Am War, the intent being ultimately to have a ‘United States of North America’ stretching from the frozen Arctic in the north down to the steamy jungles of Central America in the south.

    Things didn’t quite work out as initially planned for the United States in either Canada or Mexico in this regard…best laid plans of mice and men and all that…but, certainly not for lack of trying.

    Accordingly, as perhaps a not entirely witting client of the British, the Freemason Simon Bolivar had held a Congress of Panama in 1826 to unite the bulk of Spain’s former possessions into something like a ‘United States of South America’. Those plans had fallen through as well ultimately.

    [It will be recalled here that the British in violation of neutrality declarations had provided much needed massive military aid to the Spanish South American rebels led by Bolivar in the form of arms, ships, and many thousands of British ‘volunteer’ soldiers. The United States provided aid to the rebels as well.

    Spanish South and Central America, having been wrested from Spain’s control, would in the not distant future fall under Anglo-Saxon economic and political domination emanating from America and Britain. For Spain’s former subjects, this was out ‘out of the frying pan, and into the fryer’.]

    In more modern times and in a similar vein, and having become a loyal client of the US/UK (and before his untimely demise by those same he was loyal to) as head of the African Union, Muammar Gaddafi was pushing for a ‘United States of Africa’.

    https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/3/36/Muammar_al-Gaddafi_at_the_AU_summit.jpg/800px-Muammar_al-Gaddafi_at_the_AU_summit.jpg

    Muammar Gaddafi vows to create ‘United States of Africa’

    The Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi vowed to create a ‘United States of Africa’ after his election as head of the African Union.

    And historically, behind much of this centuries long world wide Freemasonic push for continental super states, in both it’s ‘progressive’ Capitalist and Communist (ie establishment ‘Right’ and ‘Left’) manifestations, one will find the British Empire and London behind much of it all, in spite of a much ballyhooed supposed ‘great split’ between continental and British based Freemasonry.

    The ultimate objective, of course, is a one world state, or ’empire’ as they often call it, to be known as the ‘United States of the World’/’World Union’ or some such. [Within Anglo-Saxon circles involved in high levels of Freemasonry this future world empire has been called the ‘New Rome’.]

    I don’t think it’s at all impossible that at the conclusion of the Seven Years War in 1763, with French power having been smashed in North America and much of the rest of the world, and Spain in a state of steep internal decline, and the whole of North America thus ‘ripe for the taking’ by the British Empire, that a decision was made then by the British to make a push to obtain total world power to manifest in the form of a theoretical global ‘democratic republic’ of some type.

    A faux and manufactured Hegelian Dialetic of an artificial hyper-individualist ‘Capitalist’ thesis vs a closely paralleling artificial hyper-collectivistist ‘Communist’ anti-thesis, to be set off by nearly simultaneous revolutions in two countries (ie British North America and France in 1776 and 1789 respectively) would get the ball rolling. Almost from the start, the ‘Capitalist’ and ‘Communist’ respective thesis and anti-thesis will begin, haltingly at first, merging (ie ‘synthesis) in sometimes violent struggle with each other

    A strategic false split with it’s thirteen North American colonies and the 1776 American Revolution acting as a cover for this event (with the war ultimately in effect being ‘thrown’ to the rebelling colonist by the British crown forces, despite the very real gallantry and heroism displayed by soldiers on both sides) would allow London ‘plausable deniability’ in regards to this overall global dialectical project.

    [Not to worry though, as had been planned from the beginning, in the future the US and UK will for practical purposes reunite with each other with the formation of the ‘special relationship’ circa 1900.

    The aristocratic British Whig party members in London, who in that capitol city openly displayed support during the 1776 American Revolution for Washington’s army and their fellow rebelling Whigs in the thirteen colonies, seemingly inexplicably without receiving any official British government sanction or censure for doing so, in this light were not quite as traitorous to the British Empire as their actions might have first seemed to indicate. No, not at all.]

    In this regard I don’t think it’s at all impossible that the prospect of a world war with a future united Germany and a possible world war with Russia and China, both involving the US/UK, had already largely been mapped out as early as 1770.

    Other major forces have been at work, too, to be sure, in the creation of the present situation, but the British Empire, with Freemasonry being utilized as a vehicle/device, has been a major player historically without question.

    I’m glad you responded my brother! I’ll fill you in on a couple of things I know and a couple of theories I have.

    But I do find it a stretch to imagine that Mormons would be running drugs.

    I know these people are not Mormons because lived in Houston during the 1980’s when a group from that same sect called The Children of the Lamb of God (or something close to it) began a ten year murder spree killing members of their same cult. The MSM and the US government want people to think these people are Mormon and good outstanding people (White Victims) murdered by drug dealing Cartel Members. So, I attached below a website that published a letter that was written by a LeBaron cult member currently serving 4 life sentences for murder where he writes about marijuana and cocaine trafficking and auto theft. It’s located at the very last pages of the site, brother…

    https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/cultbustersgalactica/church-of-the-lamb-of-god-ervil-lebaron-t126.html

    Now, this is something I know, the DEA had a meeting 2 weeks prior to the Sinaloa incident with the PRI Governor of Sinaloa and the US Ambassador, along with Sinaloa Law Enforcement. After that meeting the DEA gave the governor visas to live in the US for him and his family, 700,000 pesos and gave Law Enforcement weapons and drones. Then they got a warrant from a US Judge and sent the Federal National Guard and a Military Unit to pick up Olvidio for extradition. But way before the “Kick Door” guys get to the location, the DEA drops a dime and alerts the Cartel about what is about to happen. They planned a shoot out that would turn bloody with innocent victims caught in the cross fire. The President didn’t bite and pulled his men back and avoided it, but the Mexican and US MSM blamed him anyway.

    I know the DEA had a signed contract with the Sinaloa Cartel that allowed them to smuggle tons of cocaine into Chicago in exchange for information on the Cartels the DEA wanted to go after. If they worked with the Cartel before, they did it again. Check out the website below:

    One of my theories is, when the first false flag failed to get the Mexican Military to shoot it out, they needed to plan another one. Theory number two, they realized the President was not going to allow the US government in and investigate the Sinaloa incident, so this plan had to include “White People” who better, than a group of people with criminal history…just in case things went wrong, they could throw them under the bus! There are CIA and DEA agents everywhere, Mossad and Blackwater operate here also. My bet is that one of these groups did it, especially after hearing they arrested 20 year old gang bangers for the crime (Patsies), I think things got out of hand and they had to kill the women. The plan was to have the Lebaron family demand the US get involved, but because of the fuck up, Joel refused when asked what the US needed to do to help them. He said, “Stop doing all those drugs and stop sending weapons to the Cartels”!

    It’s funny how the US Ambassador was conveniently visiting Sinaloa and Sonora at the same time of both these events. My other theories I posted yesterday and they involve Mexican resources and contracts that the new President canceled when he got into office with the highest percent of votes in recent History if not ever!

    9 people murdered in Mexico is a breeze compared to 3000 murdered on 9-11, don’t you think my brother? And these dumb mother fuckers that comment here think they know something and take what is being spoon fed to them as the truth. Knowing how the US Gov and MSM stick it up their ass every time, they do not analyze each event and see what or if there is a link to them! They accuse me of being a self hating white Spaniard because I call them out about their quick racial judgements. I’ll put my money on a smart, honest Indigenous Avo Morales than a dumb con man White Donald Trump everytime! That’s not because I hate my whiteness, that is just common sense and the moral thing to do! We have the perfect IQ test here and Ron probably uses it. LOL

    What they don’t realize is every time they comment on these types of events in the manner they do (emotionally) and not open minded and critical, we see how you are being controlled and so do the PTB.

    I see you are on your game, its good reading your well researched commentaries. You always manage to slip in something new that I wasn’t aware of, like the Map Diagrams and what the layouts represented. Thanks for that sharp visual. When I see you on the sight, I always read what you have to say, but this time I wanted to say, good work buddy.

    Is there a planned US invasion of Mexico in the near future,? What are your thoughts if you think there is, or is not. I certainly think it’s possible given the lack of large volume oil producing wells. Letting Venezuela’s Oil slip through its greedy hands and Mexico canceling the Oil contracts handed out during the Energy Reform Lottery… put a wrench in the sprocket of their planned soft takeover of PEMEX.

    Rurik,

    Brother, I read everything you write on here and agree 95% of the time with the remaining 5% being that I have been blessed by living in our two worlds and I feel I assimilated perfectly to both. The 5% difference is that I actually experienced my Mexican and unlike some people that can only think they understand the Mexican in a person, I lived it. I know it sounds crazy, but its something that is within you like if I was two people at times and at times the two combine into one with all the knowledge, experience and memories of both worlds. You know, eating at the Chicago Oven Grinders Pizza Joint, watching the last game of the U of H Cougar Phi-Slama-Jama team with Clyde Drexler, Akim Alajuan and Michael Jordan in South Carolina, Bringing my buddies down to the ranch drink Mezcal and watch them ride bulls or the first time.

    I’ve been a very blessed guy Rurik throughout my two worlds, today I live at home with my mom taking care of her because I was the oldest and I really didn’t have to work. But, I needed to get out of there as too many events were happening that signaled to me that it was time to go and hunker down at the ranch. My bugout location…lol

    I don’t have words for the contempt I have for our ruling elite, J.G.

    I know exactly how you feel, brother! My reason to have a place that I can survive during a war time scenario, isn’t because I want to live.. I couldn’t stand it knowing my family was gone! No, brother my reason to want live through such is so that I can hunt and find the motherfuckers that took us down this road.

    I’ll say it again Rurik…if for whatever reason you find yourself with a ticket to Mexico… be sure to let me know, I will drive to you so we can drink a shot of Hornitos and a Tecate beer on me! Or a bunch of them! Fuck it!

    Regarding the terrible shooting incident with the Mormons I think they’d rather quietly help Mexico with the FBI as they’re doing and hopefully get some positive results that way. As for oil as far as I know the US with it’s fracking is now oil dependent and even exporting a good deal of oil, so PEMEX should be safe.

    There’s really no act too depraved for the power-drunk scumfucks to perpetrate, even murdering children, when it suits them, like at Waco, for instance.

    Also, why would the cartels murder those people, knowing the kind of heat it would bring? I don’t consider the cartels as having any scruples or decency, quite the contrary, but I’ve never considered them as uniquely stupid. Assassinating women and children, is not just depraved, but incredibly stupid.

    No not paying your water bills caused the switch to river water and you were already stupid long before that.

    actually, the criminal insanity of using the poisonous Flint river as drinking water, was a consequence of the greed of the corrupt scumbags in Detroit, who were over-charging the city of Flint for their water. So the corrupt scumbags in Flint, decided that rather than pay the corrupt scumbags in Detroit, that they’d simply use the toxic sludge in the notoriously polluted Flint river, as Flint’s water source.

    Every single person involved with using that river as Flint’s water source, should be lined up against a wall and shot. Or, failing that, get a few decades in prison.

    I don’t blame the poor residents of Flint, black or white. They’ve got it tough, no matter what their skin color. Ultimately its the governor who should have nixed the criminal insanity of using that poisoned water, and he was a white Republican.

    In fact, the corrupt (often white) scum running Michigan these days, makes the Third World look chaste and honorable by comparison.

    Multiple Mexican government-sponsored raids into the US which killed numerous American civilians over the next few years

    They weren’t full auto, just semi-auto ARs and such. This is the kind of stuff you don’t need much paperwork for. Transferrable full autos are extremely expensive (since you can’t legally make them anymore for public use) and require a lot of paperwork and waiting.

    It was a plan to ramp up the “the US is to blame for all the drug murders in Mexico” hysteria as a means to get an assault weapons ban by Feinstein here in the US. Besides Feinstein constantly braying at every chance, the big newspapares ran week-long “investigations” on where Mexico’s guns came from.

    Holder didn’t send them he just had the ATF look the other way when guys buying them for the cartels showed up in gun shops and bought the store out. Normally, if you buy too many the shop has to report it to the ATF.

    I disagree with you brother, while you talk about one way that weapons from the US get to Mexico, there is another way. I don’t know if you guys remember the huge amount of weapons that were taken from Iraq’s army. I recall the US loading containers full of AK-47s and ammo. I believe those weapons made up the bulk of the Fast and Furious weapons sales. There far too many “Full Auto” AK-47s here.

    Also, I live in the Northern state of Nuevo Leon and I know who is who…you catch my drift. I have seen brand new M-14 assault riffles with granade launchers attached. Clearly stamped “Property of the U.S. Military”. I asked them, “How did you get your hands on something like this”? “We, got our connections”, he replied, with a grin. These guys were part of the Zetas Cartel…

    There are Israeli arms dealers, that also deal in the drug trafficking to European markets. El Chapo has never been to Europe or anywhere else. US MSM really believe that we buy that bullshit about the Cartel’s worldwide distribution networks. Most can’t even speak English, let alone know people in Europe. That is handle by the pros at the alphabet agencies.

    Rurik,

    An update on the LeBaron story…A reporter claims that the shootings had nothing to do with the Cartels and that the Lebarons know it. He said, “That’s why Joel said that it was a message sent to the family”. The LeBarons have a long history of dealing with the previous corrupt administrations PRI/PAN parties. The reporter said, his investigation uncovered numerous confrontations between the LeBarons and their neighbors. They claim that the LeBarons have drilled 1100 illegal wells that prevent underground streams from reaching the other ranches in that area. Local farmers are losing their crops and animals due to this water situation. The Lebarons are powerfull, rich and connected to the government, so the complaints go unanswered.

    He said that there’s a lot of talk that the farmers hired low level criminals and paid them 50,000 pesos to send a warning by attacking the family. I still believe that it was a “False Flag” and if anyone paid those criminals it was someone working with one of the US agencies. The US didn’t get what they wanted from the incident, (US Troops in Mexico) but it did manage to get Mexico to OK the FBI investigation and MSM in the US and Mexico to blame the new president.

    I was referring to Fast and Furious. There is no way legal fully automatic weapons were part of that. The cartels could get their full auto stuff from our “allies”. The CIA has loads of AKs to give to “freedom fighters” because they are the most plentiful rifle on the planet and easy to get ammo for. So I would not doubt that the CIA gave them to somebody down south, like in Nicaragua, who eventually sold them to the cartels. That would have nothing to do with Fast and Furious where the desire was to have guns used in Mexican murders traced back to American gun shops. Only Class 3 dealers can sell a legally transferrable full auto and it requires a lot of money, time, paperwork, and permission of the local police authorities.

  404. The Daily Beast reports that “Mayo” Zambada the leader of the Sinaloa Cartel, sent his people to look for whoever killed the LeBaron family members. According to the article, he’s fucking pissed and wants them killed whoever they are. Whether they’re associates, rivals or local farmers angry over water rights. Here’s the link…. There were two farmers killed a while back, protecting their water sources and no one has been brought to justice for those murders, but all signs point to the LeBaron family. There is one thing that people on both sides of the border have in common, both countries operate on two sets of Laws…one for the rich and powerful and one or the poor and marginalized.

    I hope those poor farmers are not accused of these crimes or executed by sicarios sent by a pissed off boss…because something deep inside me says, “False Flag”and my first instincts are always right… \

    I’ve been trying to tell you guys that the US has very little oil left and should stop trying to be the number one oil exporter. Drilling for Shale Oil is not the same as drilling a new well. Shale wells have a limited amount of oil and usually starts slowing down it out put within a couple years. All those wells that were drilled promising huge oil sales were a “Smoke Screen” to convince the American people that they had so much oil, it was time to change a law that was in place since the Arab Oil Embargo in the 80’s. The law did not allow any oil produced in the US to be sold outside the US. In 2015 Obama and the Republicans reversed that law and sold all of the US Strategic Oil Reserves to China in one big cheap deal.

    The US was counting on the continued theft of PEMEX which by now would have been nothing but a memory with US Oil Companies drilling and selling the oil. Then we have Venezuela another huge oil reserve that they had planned to take over. No one in the US would even know the US supply was trickling down to nothing if oil kept flowing north from Mex and Venezuela and now Bolivia.

    J.G.,

    Let’s see. The US are setting precedents occupying oil fields in Syria and blatantly stealing Syrian oil. As Trump says:

    “[W]e are leaving soldiers to secure the oil. And we may have to fight for the oil. It’s okay. Maybe somebody else wants the oil, in which case they have a hell of a fight. But there’s massive amounts of oil.”

    “And we’re securing it for a couple of reasons. Number one, it stops ISIS, because ISIS got tremendous wealth from that oil. We have taken it. It’s secured. Number two – and again, somebody else may claim it, but either we’ll negotiate a deal with whoever is claiming it, if we think it’s fair, or we will militarily stop them very quickly.”

    The thieving gringos could extend this to Venezuela, Mexico, or wherever the hell they may want to steal oil. Then extend to other valuable resources too. They could just send special forces to seize whatever oil well or mine they wish and then put the onus on the government of the affected country to start a war to get their wells and mines back. This is what Trump actually states in that statement. Policy of New Piracy.

    You’re correct, in the big scheme of things, the US doesn’t have a great deal of oil. The ‘fracking revolution’ of the past few years is the US in effect tapping into its reserves and it creates an illusion of plentiful oil for the moment.

    For decades the US and even more so it’s allies, have been dependent on imported foreign oil, a lot of it coming from the Persian Gulf.

    However, if someone were planning in the relative short term to unleash a world war, perhaps in the next few years, much of it centered upon the Middle East, which would likely shut off that Persian Gulf oil to you and your allies (not to mention other foreign oil sources likely being blocked as well) it makes perfect sense that the US would be tapping into those shale reserves now just as they are doing. It allows for the US in the short term to have a free hand oil wise.

    I think this could also explain the push of the past few years to strengthen the US steel industry, ie the tarrifs, which is something else which would be done if a country were preparing for war. This would be important for domestic arms production.

    Once a world war kicked off anything might happen, even early on a nucleur exchange. If the US shale reserves started to play out, under cover of a world war, the US/UK might well make an open grab for Mexico’s and South America’s close by oil supply, ‘to protect the Mexican and SA wells from terrorists’ or ‘enemy insurgents’ or some such it could be said.

    BUT, it’s simply no more possible to change the culture of a country by invading it than it is to change the culture of “minorities” already in the U.S. Observe the success of the “War on Poverty” as an example. 55 years and the culture of “Poor” hasn’t budged.

    I agree with you 100% my brother, these people on here actually believe the Sinaloa Cartel murdered these people, and keep referring to them as Moron LDS Americans. They are an off shoot of the “Children of the Lamb of God” a cult, with a very dark past. Why have the real Moron LDS church not condemned these acts? Because they want nothing to do with these people!

    If anyone in the US believe that these people could never be involved in the drug trade I suggest you Google the Mennonite Drug Cartel, a much more fanatical religious group that settled in the same area of Mexico. They run drugs from Mexico through the US and into Canada where they have a huge community. Enrique, the Cartel leader is a White, Blond, Blue eyed man that has connections with the Sinaloa Cartel. This group was exposed because a member was arrested in Oklahoma City for DWI, his third, and didn’t want to go to jail. He became an informant and the Mennonite Cartel was investigated and the largest drug busts in OK, was due to those investigations. No one believed it was true until a documentary produced a video documenting the Mexican Mennonite Community.

    The same thing has been said about the LeBaron family’s involvement with drug running. The Cartels used these people because they are all white, blond with blue eyes and travel with all their kids. They also have a special visa that allow the Canadian Mennonites to travel through the US with this document! The DEA investigating this group was caught off guard, and said that these people were never a “Red Flag” because of their religious, ethnic and waived through at the border.

    The US needs Oil, Gas and Lithium to sell in support of their failed economic system that is supported by Corporate stock buybacks with Tax Breaks, Military Weapon Sales and Printing of Paper Money. They have nothing else, manufacturing will never return and the US has become a Service Oriented Economy.

    Mexico on the other hand has rich deposits of Oil, Gas, Gold, Silver, Copper and the largest Uranium deposits in the Americas. Last week signed contracts with China to purchase Mexican Oil, and open up other investments and trade deals (New Silk Road), Russia has offered Mexico it’s latest MIG – 35 and related technology transfer if they build it here, Singapour just signed a multi-million dollar deal to develop el Istmo de Tehuantepec a stretch of land between the Pacific and the Atlantic that will move cargo from one side to the other, eliminating the sometimes month long wait at the Panama canal. China and Carlos Slim have signed on to the Mayan Train, and we have a lot more projects already in construction. I’ll attach a video so you can see Mike, it’s in Spanish but you will be able to understand, and I don’t have to type a book explaining.

    We know the US planned shipment of weapons to Mexico, that they had a contract with the Sinaloa Cartel to import drugs to the US, we know the CIA and DEA shared intelligence between the Cartels instigating these drug wars, we know the DEA setup the recent Sinaloa Cartel confrontation with the Mexican government, the whole world has seen how the US operates. Putin liked AMLO not to letting the US Military in and advised against letting the FBI in. But, it was easier to let them in and keep an eye on them.

    The US can not stop Mexico’s advancement with violence, it hasn’t slowed it down let alone halt it.

    Man, Mike sorry about the long response, this is just a little tiny bit of things going on in Mexico…

    To my brother Commentator Mike,

    I couldn’t keep this music to myself brother, I just want to show you that there is very little difference between our 2 worlds. As we share each others space we both learn from each other brother! These “White” American soldiers have more “Latin Rhythm” than a lot of Mexicans including myself! LOL

    If only they were used to spread music, song and dance instead of terror, humiliation and death! The world would be a much better place, you guys have to take that Zionists yoke off your neck brother! Enjoy life like these brilliant musicians! Experiencing someone else’s culture does mean you lose yours, it just means you are human.

    I don’t think these guys hate Mexicans or would want to invade them…What do you think?

    With love from Mexico…J.G.

    You schmuck, seeking better economic opportunities due to uncle sams boot is irrelevant from liking somebody? What are you a decedent off? Irish, English, Scottish, Welsh, Spanish, French, German, Romanian, Belgium, Austrian, Hungarian, Czech, Slovakian, Portuguese, etc,? Somoza and Pinochet weren’t communist you dumb schmuck. And work on you math there, 1 to 1 1/2 centuries ago? Are you dumb or play the revisionist card like you (innocent, victimized, abused, blah-blah) Imperial shills like to do??? As long as ‘King dollar’ remains in play people would be attracted to it. Be happy to your Zionist master that brought upon such a comfort for you and subjugated the rest of the world to subsidize your 3 fast food meals a day you enjoy along with the rest of imperial plebs back home. Stop giving comparisons that have no footing.

    You NAZI Schmuck.

    Remember this, no matter how big a wall you build, drugs won’t stop pouring in because you love them (if anything profits would rocket sky high; do you really think they go away then? schmuck). Your government loves them. Not only do they sell weapons to the governments fighting the cartels (at the behest of yanks), but also the cartels themselves; double whammy in profits for the MIC (that your economy is so dependent on). Then they bring in the drugs and distribute them across (explains why you have the biggest poppy field in Afghanistan) to fund your dirty operations and prevent you from going bankrupt (just ask your banks that love laundering dirty money to find its way back in your pocket as clean money [you sanctimonious shill]). Then your government loves jailing people for said drugs the bring in to keep funding the massive for profit jail system operating in the country (funding judges, cop unions, cities, sheriffs, and the list goes on). IMF sure loves austerity in Latin America and ripping natural resources for your corporations (again to subsidize the life of the plebs back home and keep king dollar relevant). So as indispensable and exceptional you consider yourself, remember most of these criminal organizations learn their MO from the school of the Americas situated in the empire central (running the biggest mobster organization int the world). Dumb schmuck.

    My brother S,

    It seems I got this shit right…I’ve been keeping track of our Governors in the Northern states of Tamaulipas, Chihuahua and Sonora because they belong to the corrupt PRI/PAN parties. Cabesa de Vaca from Tamaulipas is a Narco PAN Governor with ties to the cartels, Corral is a US born PAN Governor that has been rumored to be behind the murder of a reporter investigating his links to a local Cartel, Povlavich is a PRI governor that requested the FBI come to Mexico and investigate. All three have strong US ties and Corral has threatened to split his state from Mexico (The People Hate Him) and Cabessa de Vaca just called the Cartel violence “Terrorist” violence making way for the US government to classify Cartels as Terrorist Organizations.

    Why does the US want to bring in US troops? Sonora and Chihuahua are rich mining states and Tamaulipas is sitting on top of the Largest Oil and Gas deposits in North America (Burgos Quenke).
    The US has been shipping heavy machine guns like the ones seen in Sinaloa to the Cartels on the border. If this happens brother, and it looks like it will, it will start with a tremendous amount of blood shed unless this president can do what he did in Sinaloa and not bite the bait. He has to let the Military handle it on his terms, and try not to create what the US is wanting, a blood bath.

    This is going to give China and Russia the reason to invade an out of control US government bent on stealing what they want, such as in the case of Syria and it’s Oil. I predicted they would invade Venezuela first, Cuba second and then Mexico and it’s starting to look that way with the overthrow of Evo. They can now use Bolivia to invade Venezuela.

    Hey censors…can you please get Mr. Unz to check on what I’m talking about and ask his people like Mr. Reed in Mexico, what they think. Because this is looking like Trump’s Wag the Dog distraction, and it’s not going to be good for us in Mexico and Latin America.

    It looks like they are done with you guys (their “Host”) and before they move on, the US will be totally destroyed from within or by the countries they invade and have invaded in the past. Just like their last host, Germany! This is most likely my last comment, I have to get my shit done sooner than I thought, good luck…

    Well said brother.

    Hopefully these exceptional Nazi Xenophobes get the point, since they are the majority on these comment boards.

    Best of wishes.

    Learn to spell first, because you are staring to represent some of those fictitious characteristics you just ascribed, you Xenophobe Nazi Schmuck. Many of those lawn mowers and burger flipping Mexicans have paid off their own homes with there hard work. What about you? Hating, because you still live under mommies basement?

  420. @J. Gutierrez

    Thank you for putting those xenophobic Nazi schmucks in there place J.G. Facts aren’t something the imperial shills are to familiar with and vehemently reject even when plastered right in front of their eyes. Keep it up 👍

    If the united states invaded mexicoonville for real, the mexicoon children fighting wouldnt mean a damn thing.
    Mexico would be defeated in short order just like every other time.
    Half of texas population would join the march, including a few million texicans(aztecs that have been in texas for many generations and who hate illegals and the mexican cartels).
    However, we just need to send in the air force and drones to wipe out the cartels lavish compounds, to incinerate them into piles of ash with their occupants, and then build a damn wall.
    We dont need to take over the nation, just TARGET ITS MAIN TERRORISTS DIRECTLY.

    I appreciate you reading my comments Truthsayer, I try and share as much as I can…the people that do not form part of the mindless ultra-right, can appreciate it. The red baseball cap wearing crowd think they live the good life, because of their hard work, the Constitution, Christian values and Capitalists economic system. They live in a world only visible to them, created by their Zionists masters, using visual and subliminal messages to alter their perception of the world they live in.

    They say Americans built the greatest country in the world. And yet history tells us it was Chinese, Irish and African labor that physically built the railroads. The US Constitution has no place in the America of today, Christian values are nothing more than supporting the Jews and the Capitalists system has morphed into a Mr, Hyde version of the original Capitalist system that allowed people to create businesses, not gobble them up for the wealthy.

    Americans believe being over 25 trillion dollars in debt is no problem, when they can print more money. Americans don’t believe or refuse to believe that they have been living the good life not because of their hard work, but because of other peoples hard work. Otherwise, Americans wouldn’t be able to afford the type of lifestyle they live, if not for the low wages paid to the less fortunate.

    Americans fail to see what other countries clearly see, that the US dollar being the standard world currency is as a major disadvantage for countries that have to buy them in order to trade. Americans do not see themselves as pirates, but they have always been the criminal cabal that takes what they want. Truthsayer, “I’m going to say it like I see it, because mama didn’t raise no fool”.

    To those you call Nazi schmucks and Imperial shills, I say “God” will not pardon the ignorant when it comes to answering for your cuckold stance while your leaders oppressed and murdered at will! The US invaded Mexico in 1848 after Mexico was nice enough to allow poor Anglo settlers to have a place of their own and raise a family. We all know what happened and the US took half of Mexico’s territory. Through all the years since…the US kept taking from Mexico, Oil and Gas, Gold and Silver mines, Rail Roads, Power Stations, etc.

    The new President is taking back the Oil Contracts, Gas Contracts and Electric Company that were part of the Energy Reforms shoved down our throats by Hillary Clinton and Obama. For you stupid people that can’t see in front of your feet, I’ll try to explain 21 trillion dollars in debt and no manufacturing means the US needs something to sell to cover their debt. There is nothing better than Land rich with Oil, Gas, Gold, Silver, Copper, Lithium to get you back on your feet. Mexico’s northern states have all those resources and more!

    The Cartel’s being labeled as terrorists is how they plan to take those states. They have started painting the picture of a worldwide Drug Network, that starts in Bolivia, goes through Argentina, up through Colombia into Venezuela moving through Nicaragua and Cuba and into Mexico where it is transported to the US. Take notice of the countries that I listed because those are the countries the US sees as Leftist Socialist Supporters of Drug Terrorist Organizations. The Drug Terrorist Organization that will be named is the Jalisco Nuevo Generacion Cartel.

    The President of Mexico clearly said, “With all due respect to President Donald Trump, thanks for offering to help us, but we can’t allow any foreign army into our territory without it violating our constitution”. “We are are Sovereign Country that can handle it’s internal problems without the assistance of you Military.” “We will never allow Foreign Troops on our soil”. Here’s the kicker for you Imperial shills, as my brother Truthsayer calls you…You will invade and you will kill, rape and torture Mexicans, because that’s what the Zionists want you to do. You see, they can’t leave a healthy, well armed American Host when they jump to the next host. They have to leave you in ruins, beaten and weak so you can’t hunt them down!

    With the current US policy of attacking other countries, bullying their way using tariffs and embargoes, Canada will not support you when Russia and China begin their bombing. All of Latin America will rush through the southern border and will not stop until they reach Alaska. Can you people even imagine and Army of Iraqi, Libyan, Syrian, Cuban, Nicaraguan and Hard Core Mexican Cartel Members running through the streets of Mayberry USA? Can you? That is the Zionist goodby plan for the US, so be careful what you wish for, because I have 26,000 acres of Land Grant property in Nueces County that I want back!

    If white Spanish conquistador-descended European elite running Mexico did not forge strong ties with Washington the Aztecs and Yaqui and Toltec Indians of Mexico would rise up and seek to redistribute the wealth controlled by Mexican European elites.

    Same through the Isthmus from Rio Grand to Panama. The Criollo have no choice but to align themselves with Washington in order to suppress the Indians and Mulatto.

    Also, it is tacitly understood that the Indians and Mestizos can illegally immigrate to the US in order to prevent endless Indian vs European wars in Mexico and Guatemala and Salvador.

    Your Mexican leaders have to cooperate. They belong to the small European minority who run Mexico and Washington DC is complicit.

  425. @J. Gutierrez

    …Problem is that when that happens, there will be no market for drugs because Americans won’t have jobs to buy cocaine or meth or weed if their society collapses into anarchy.

    You have to go through Canada to get to Alaska and believe me, the Canadians are not letting Mexicans (Or Americans) buffalo their border.

    If you think you can get across Lake Superior as easily as the Rio Grande make an attempt. You’ll be in Canadian custody in 30 seconds.

    I’m from the Canadian border and I can tell you…that border is secure.

    Also, not many illegal immigrants come to Detroit. So what would your Indians do when America collapsed in anarchy? Nobody will be going to restaurants that will hired them as kitchen help.

    Would Latin Americans rush to enter a country being bombed? I guess that would be a reflection of how bad countries between the Rio Grande and Panama canal are that they would move to a country being bombed.

    Cubans are descended from Spanish who fought the Muslims for about 1000 years. I doubt they want to become part of Florida Caliphate.

    Also these ME countries and the world at large would be economically devastated when America’s economic engine collapsed. They would go into recession at the very least. Probably deeper than that. Probably a huge depression.

  426. @Adolf hitler

    Another idiot to hyped up on Hollywood and Tom Clancy, that he can ramble so callously. When you say every other time, it’d do you some good to read every single post and get an insight on reality you Nazi schmuck. Regarding the civilian compound bombing air force and drones, you’re an idiot to even spout such stupidity. Look at every country you’ve deployed said tactics and what has been the result you imperial warmongering Nazi schmuck.

    Crawl back under your rock and please build the Wall big enough to prevent you from leaving it. That way the world can develop and grow steadfast in peace while you crumble internally since you fail to grasp how your living standard is maintained, you warmongering imperial shill.

    The author has only partial knowkedge. The sinaloa carteles is just one from sveral carteles some of them specially the Zetas cartel and its branschens are hated and feared by the locals due to that the kidnapp harass extortion common civilians besides their narco activities. The problem in Mexico is very complete. Some of the carteles like the Zetas have been trainee by the CIA and US military, so the US should look its own role in this mess.

  428. nymom says:

    President Trump has just designated certain Mexican cartels as terrorist organizations. So depending upon the findings of the FBI, which joined the investigation in Mexico in early November, we will be free to drone these groups w/o congressional approval.

    Mexico is sending a representative to the White House to try to persuade Trump to change his mind which I hope he doesn’t do, but you never know.

    The saga continues…
