Mexican violence spirals as 69 are murdered in one day

Mexican violence spirals as 69 are murdered in one day

UK Telegraph
January 12, 2010

The grim total included 26 deaths in Ciudad Juarez, the city on the US border which is regarded as the front line in Mexico’s fight against the cartels. Several of the victims there were beheaded.

The raging battle between rival drug gangs also reached a gruesome new low as a murder victim in the northern city of Los Mochis had his face sliced off and stitched onto a football.

It was accompanied by a note which said: “Happy New Year, because it will be your last”. The torso and limbs of the victim, Hugo Hernandez, 36, had been cut into seven parts which were dumped separately along with his skull.

In another shocking case the remains of a 41-year-old former police officer were found hidden in two separate ice chests.

A total of 283 people are believed to have died in drug-related violence in Mexico in the first 10 days of this year, which is more than double the number during the same period in 2009.

In Ciudad Juarez, across the border from El Paso, Texas, there were 102 killings in the first 10 days of the year, compared to 46 in that period last year. There were more than 2,500 victims in the city in the whole of 2009.

The explosion in violence comes three years after President Felipe Calderón declared war on the drug cartels.

He has since deployed 50,000 troops in a nationwide crackdown but has failed to stem the tide and 15,000 people have died since late 2006.

Last year was the bloodiest so far with more than 6,500 drug-related killings, according to the San Diego-based Trans-Border Institute which keeps death tallies.

Director David Shirk said: “It does appear that the violence has grown exponentially.”

However, the government has had recent successes against seven of the eight major drug cartels.

The most high profile was the killing of cartel boss Arturo Beltran Leyva in a firefight with the military south of Mexico City last month.

Another drug kingpin, Teodoro “El Teo” Garcia Simental, was arrested this week in a fishing city on the Baja California peninsula.

Garcia Simental, who operated in the border city of Tijuana, was one of Mexico’s most wanted drug lords who was notorious for beheading victims and allegedly having bodies dissolved in acid.

Last year one of his aides, Santiago Meza Lopez, 45, was captured and confessed to being his “soup master,” claiming to have dissolved 300 bodies in vats of chemicals.

The cartels are fighting for control of cocaine-smuggling routes from Central America into the US, the world’s top drug consumer, which has pledged millions of dollars in aid to help combat the cartels.

Mr Shirk said the powerful Sinaloa cartel headed by billionaire Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzmán, which has so far been left relatively unscathed in the drug war, may now become dominant and that could ultimately lead to a fall in violence.

What Is The North American Union?

 



Obama To Launch North American Union Propaganda

Obama To Launch Propaganda Campaign For North American Union

A new report out of left leaning globalist think tank the Brookings Institute confirms an agenda to re-brand the long running effort to merge the US, Canada and Mexico into a Federal superstate akin to the European Union.

The report was highlighted by author Jerome Corsi, who points out that the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America has become much maligned owing to it’s quasi secretive advancement of a North American integration agenda.

“Two top Washington think-tanks have now formally suggested in writing that the Obama administration should rename the SPP as a public relations ploy to advance the North American integration agenda without drawing so much flak from those of us interested in preserving U.S. sovereignty,” Corsi writes in his Red Alert newsletter.

In the Brookings Institute report, titled “Toward a New Frontier: Improving the U.S.-Canadian Border”, Christopher Sands, a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute, where he specializes on North American economic integration, suggests the Obama administration should continue the agenda of the SPP, but under a new name.

“Despite evidence that NAFTA has been beneficial on balance to American business, workers, and consumers the argument remains vilified by many as an unwarranted move to embrace globalization.” Sands writes.

“President Obama recognized this on the campaign trail in 2008, when he called for the renegotiation of NAFTA’s provisions to correct flaws in the original agreement. As a result, the Obama administration will most likely rename the SPP.” Sands concludes.

The report also suggests focusing more on the integration of the US and Canada as a priority, before bringing Mexico into the equation.

Sands suggests the following three courses of action:

1. “President Obama should borrow from the lexicon of the European Union and announce that the United States will proceed in negotiations with its two neighbors ‘at two speeds,’ moving ahead more quickly where possible with its developed neighbor Canada, and allowing Mexico to proceed more slowly as necessary.”

2. “The Obama administration is likely to want to ‘press the reset button’ on the SPP, an unpopular though valuable initiative that has improved policy coordination between the United States and its neighbors.”

3. “The SPP must be re-branded to win any kind of consensus support. The Obama administration recognizes this, and could take a few tactical steps to make the SPP (or its eventual successor) work better and win broader support.”

Sands defines his vision of the re-branded SPP as an effort “to build a truly ‘new frontier’ on the northern border,” adding that “President Obama’s community organizing experience suits him well for the task ahead.”

Sands is deeply entrenched in the integration agenda, being a member of the Advisory Committee to the U.S. Section of The North American Competitiveness Council (NACC), organized by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to consult with U.S. government officials in negotiations under the SPP.

The NACC is essentially an elite advisory board comprised of 30 senior private sector representatives of North American corporations that were selected by the American, Canadian and Mexican governments at the June 2006 trilateral meeting in Cancun, Mexico.

Last year, one month prior to the SPP summit in April, documents were uncovered relating how the NACC was formed as part of a public relations overhaul to counter critics of the SPP.

The documents detailed how, through the NACC, corporate representatives were urged to “humanize” North American integration, promote NAFTA success stories to employees and unions and evolve the harmonization agenda “without fueling protectionism”.

The move was seemingly a response to the continued exposition of the integration agenda, which led to representatives within Congress petitioning the government on the secretiveness of the SPP and multiple states introducing resolutions calling on their federal representatives to halt work on the so called “North American Union”.

Earlier this week we revealed that president Obama is scheduled to attend this year’s SPP meeting in Mexico in August 9-10, slated as the “North American Leader’s Summit”.

“The key to understanding what is going on with the SPP under the Obama administration is the realization that globalists always proceed under a stealth agenda,” Jerome Corsi comments.

“Globalists typically mask their real plans to produce regional governments out of trade agreements by changing names and designing different structures when initial attempts to destroy nation-states are exposed and stalled by citizens who are still patriotic enough to cherish what remains left of their national sovereignty.”

 



Obama Supports Global Gun-Control Treaty

Obama Supports Global Gun-Control Treaty

Infowars
May 3, 2009

Lou Dobbs notes that Obama is in favor of ratifying CIFTA, the Inter-American Convention Against Illicit Manufacturing of and Trafficking in Firearms. The treaty would “prevent, combat, and eradicate the illicit manufacturing of and trafficking in firearms, ammunition, explosives and other related materials”. According to Gun Owners of America; “Illicit manufacturing includes reloading and modifying or assembling a firearm in any way, This would mean that the Obama administration could promulgate regulations banning reloading on the basis of this treaty”.

Obama has promised Mexican President Felipe Calderon that he would urge the Senate to take up CIFTA. He is doing this under the cover of the drug cartel violence in Mexico. Obama and Calderon quoted a statistic echoed by the corporate media that 90% of the weapons seized in Mexican raids were purchased from U.S. gun shops and a reason why the U.S. needs to ratify this treaty. In fact, this is a lie — only a mere 17% of guns found at Mexico crime scenes have been traced to the U.S.

CIFTA would bury the Second Amendment under “pertinent resolutions of the United Nations General Assembly.” It would criminalize ammunition reloading (defined as explosives manufacture) and gun assembly (including firearm kits and presumably breaking down weapons for cleaning or transport).

Language contained in the CIFTA treaty insists it respects “the principles of sovereignty, non-intervention, and the juridical equality of states.” Not mentioned is the fact the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties has a superior rank to national laws. If the CIFTA treaty is ratified without exception, it would kill U.S. sovereignty and lead the way to destroying the Second Amendment.

It should be noted that only the Senate needs to ratify the treaty. Article II, section 2, of the Constitution states that the president “shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two-thirds of the Senators present concur.”

The United States was one of the first signatories to CIFTA in November, 1997. The Convention was transmitted to the Senate in June 1998 and to this day awaits the Senate’s advice and consent. 29 of the 34 OAS member states have ratified CIFTA. Only the US, Canada, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica and St. Vincent & Grenadines have yet to do so.

Despite Obama promising before the election that he was not interested in going after the second amendment, his first action as president was appointing rabidly anti-gun Eric Holder as his Attorney General.

Obama quietly leaked a gun ban list that would make millions of Americans potential criminals for owning certain types of rifles or pistols. Anti-gun legislation has sneaked its way into Obama’s stimulus bill and other unrelated bills as pork barrel.

Obama has made it clear that he supports the D.C. handgun ban calling it constitutional, but denies filling out a questionnaire answering “Yes” in supporting state legislation to “ban the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns” and assault weapons. [Source] Obama also co-sponsored a bill that would have limited American’s handgun purchases to one per month (fortunately it did not pass).

The result of Obama’s outward support of gun control, record firearms purchases and ammunition purchases across the country has skyrocketed. In San Francisco at a Daly City gun show people rushed gun tables buying up everything they can find, “everybody’s panic buying,” said a wholesale ammunition dealer, “when the doors opened people we’re running in,” “people are afraid the Obama administration will ban assault weapons.”. [Source]

If that’s not all, a new bill has been introduced to the U.S. House of Representatives titled the “Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act of 2009” (HR 2159). The bill would allow the Attorney General Eric Holder (the anti-gun creature that Obama appointed) to deny firearms to anyone that is suspected a terrorist. This is very disturbing because Homeland Security is currently assaulting free speech, flat-out calling U.S. Constitution supporters as domestic terrorists. [Source]

Students Trained to Spread North American Union Propaganda

“North American Parliament” Meets At Integration Forum
Students trained in “sense of belonging to North America”

May 27, 2008

A simulation of a North American Parliament, designed to “develop the participants’ sense of belonging to North America” and “and promote the creation of North American academia networks” is currently taking place in Montreal.

100 selected students from universities in the U.S., Canada and Mexico have been selected to take on the roles of Legislators, Journalists and Lobbyists, in the fourth annual Triumvirate of the North American Forum on Integration.

The meeting represents another example of an overarching movement on behalf of globalist business leaders and politicians to merge the three nations of North America into an EU like federation.

Participants at the Triumvirate discuss draft bills on issues such as trade corridors, immigration, NAFTA’s Chapter 11 and renewable energy.

While the meeting is billed as an exercise to debate these areas of policy, there is no simulated opposition to the overall agenda and the documents provided to participants represent little more than essays debunking opponents of NAFTA, attacking traders who do not adhere to a North American union model, presenting methods of control such as the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative which considers biometric RFID cards for border crossings, and promoting the agenda of NAFI itself which it makes clear is to forge North American integration.

Minnesota House & Senate Reject Real ID

AP
May 27, 2008

The House and Senate have approved a bill that would bar state driver’s license authorities from implementing the federal Real ID regulations.

Governor Pawlenty vetoed an earlier attempt to require that conditions be met before the state could change licenses to meet federal rules. But both chambers passed the bill by veto-proof margins: 50-16 in the Senate and 103-30 in the House.

The Real ID mandate would require every citizen to carry a U.S. government-approved card to board a plane or enter a federal facility.

Critics say it will be costly to implement and that too much of people’s personal information will be added to a national database. Supporters argue that a more secure identification card will help in homeland security and immigration control efforts.

 

Real ID license actually a surveillance card

Kennebec Journal
May 26, 2008

In response to Joseph Reisert’s article about Real ID driver’s licenses: A Real ID driver’s license would be required to enter an airport, board a plane or enter a federal building. If, rather than have a Real ID license, I decide not to enter an airport, board an airplane or enter a federal building, why do I need a Real ID driver’s license to drive a car?

Ah, because an ordinary driver’s license in Corporate America is used to cash checks, which are used to buy groceries and other merchandise and to pay bills for electricity, TV and telephones — in short, checks make up the entire fabric of the corporate state.

If everyone had a Real ID, everything about a citizen could be fed into a database describing the person’s income, purchases, reading habits, job description, medical records. A GPS profile could be made showing where that citizen is on the planet at any given time. A Real ID driver’s license is really a surveillance card.

What Reisert seems to be saying is that to have our military empire, financed by the corporate state, we must give up freedom as a political institution and accept the fact that war is peace, freedom is slavery, ignorance is strength. Not to mention the tautology that surveillance is security.

Mexico Death Rate From Drug Cartels Rise

Mexico Death Rate From Drug Cartels Rise

Manuel Roig-Franzia
Washington Post
March 16, 2008

The killers prowled through Loma Bonita in the pre-dawn chill.

In silence, they navigated a labyrinth of wood shacks at the crest of a dirt lane in the blighted Tijuana neighborhood, police say. They were looking for Margarito Saldaña, an easygoing 43-year-old district police commander. They found a house full of sleeping people.

Neighbors quivered at the crack of AK-47 assault rifles blasting inside Saldaña’s tiny home. Rafael García, an unemployed laborer who lives nearby, recalled thinking it was “a fireworks show,” then sliding under his bed in fear.

In murdering not only Saldaña, but also his wife, Sandra, and their 12-year-old daughter, Valeria, the Loma Bonita killers violated a rarely broken rule of Mexico’s drug cartel underworld: Family should remain free from harm. The slayings capped five harrowing hours during which the assassins methodically hunted down and murdered two other police officers and mistakenly killed a 3-year-old boy and his mother.

The brutality of what unfolded here in the overnight hours of Jan. 14 and early Jan. 15 is a grim hallmark of a crisis that has cast a pall over the United States’ southern neighbor. Events in three border cities over the past three months illustrate the military and financial power of Mexico’s cartels and the extent of their reach into a society shaken by fear.

More than 20,000 Mexican troops and federal police are engaged in a multi-front war with the private armies of rival drug lords, a conflict that is being waged most fiercely along the 2,000-mile length of the U.S.-Mexico border. The proximity of the violence has drawn in the Bush administration, which has proposed a $500 million annual aid package to help President Felipe Calderon combat what a Government Accountability Office report estimates is Mexico’s $23 billion a year drug trade.

A total of more than 4,800 Mexicans were slain in 2006 and 2007, making the murder rate in each of those years twice that of 2005. Law enforcement officials and journalists, politicians and peasants have been gunned down in the wave of violence, which includes mass executions, such as the killings of five people whose bodies were found on a ranch outside Tijuana this month.

Like the increasing number of Mexicans heading over the border in fear, the violence itself is spilling into the United States, where a Border Patrol agent was recently killed while trying to stop suspected traffickers.

Drawing on firepower, savage intimidation and cash, the cartels have come to control key parts of the border, securing smuggling routes for 90 percent of the cocaine flowing into the United States, according to the State Department. At the same time, Mexican soldiers roam streets in armored personnel carriers, attack helicopters patrol the skies, and boats ply the coastal waters.

“The situation is deteriorating,” Victor Clark, a Tijuana human rights activist and drug expert, said in an interview. “Drug traffickers are waging a terror campaign. The security of the nation is at stake.”
