  • Songs from Mexico on radio promoting Hillary

    Spanish-language radio stations | 23 October 2016 | Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin
    Spanish-language radio stations are playing overwhelmingly pro-Hillary songs on the radio. We have allowed a culture which largely hates us and wishes to dispossess us to grow and become a major political force against us. Such activity is specifically forbidden in Mexico, but then they turn and do the very same thing to us. At best we are facing civil war. At the worst death or enslavement.

    Mexico had a flourishing, legal, gun culture until 1972, when the Mexican government made private, legal, ownership of guns extremely difficult and expensive.  The change in law was meant to disarm the political opposition and keep the existing power structure in place.  The power structure has remained in place, but it has not flourished.  Much of Mexico is contested ground, with narco-cartels that are not aligned with the Mexican government in armed conflict with the Government and its cartel allies.  Private citizens are caught in the crossfire, abused by both sides, and denied the legal ability to arm themselves....

    The total apprehensions by U.S. Border Patrol agents of people trying to illegally cross the border between the United States and Mexico increased in 2016 from last year but is lower than the two years prior. In 2016, there were 408,870 total apprehensions, a 23 percent increase from 2015 in which there were 331,333 apprehensions, U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said in a statement. The 2016 numbers, though, represent a 14.7 percent decrease from the 479,371 apprehensions in 2014, and a 1.3 percent decrease from the 414,397 apprehensions in 2013.

    Influential House Members Planning Immigration Push in 2017 Jon Reid October 13, 2016 Two influential House Democrats are planning another shot at immigration reform next year, regardless of who controls the House. Veteran Reps. Luis Gutiérrez (D-Ill.) and Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) have already held “preliminary discussions” about crafting draft legislation after the election, which they hope will serve as the starting point for a bipartisan overhaul of immigration laws in 2017, according to a senior Democratic aide. While immigration reform proved too difficult to accomplish under the Obama administration, Gutiérrez thinks it is doable in the next Congress, particularly if...

    Multiple high-dollar donors to the Clinton Foundation are associated with the New York Times, including the Times’ top shareholder, Carlos Slim. Slim, a Mexican telecom tycoon whose net worth of nearly $80 billion makes him the second richest man in the world, became the top shareholder of the New York Times earlier this year after he doubled his shares to take control of 16.8 percent of the company. Not only has Slim contributed between $1,000,001 and $5,000,000 to the Clinton Foundation, but his company Telmex has contributed an additional grant between $1,000,001 and $5,000,000 through its foundation.

His sons have hunted internationally, especially in Africa. He is a world traveler.

The LGBT community and its allies launched a counterprotest, waving rainbow flags and carrying pictures of former presidents Benito Juárez and Plutarco Elías Calles — lionized as heroes of the secular state, figures who curbed Catholic Church privileges in the 19th and early 20th centuries. These contradictory images symbolize a growing conflict in this nation, where the church has been relegated...

"When he speaks about geo-economic situation and the geo-political situation and terrorism, he’s absolutely ignorant, and he’s only provoking us democratic leaders from around the world to reject everything he’s proposing. He is an imperialistic gringo." In contrast, Fox said Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton looked "very presidential." "My impression...

Mexico purchased 12 Tiger IIs from Northrop in 1982 via a US Foreign Military Sales (FMS) program dubbed Peace Aztec. Before the deal was inked, Mexico experienced a turbulent decade trying to purchase a new light fighter.

    Seizures of methamphetamine soared at the US-Mexico border during fiscal year 2014, accelerating a trend that began several years ago as new laws that limited access to the drug's chemical ingredients made it harder to manufacture it in the U.S. Meth seized by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection's San Diego field office accounted for nearly two-thirds -- 63 percent -- of all the meth seized at all ports of entry nationwide in the fiscal year. U.S. Customs and Border Protection figures show a 300 percent increase in meth seizures at California ports of entry from fiscal 2009 to 2014.

  • Trump in Mexico Recalls Reagan in Geneva

    Editor's note: Phyllis Schlafly passed away on September 5 at the age of 92. She will be missed. Donald Trump’s surprise visit to Mexico, where he met the Mexican president and discussed the many contentious issues between our two countries, reminds me of President Reagan’s important trip to Geneva in 1985. Reagan was more than willing to sit down with the Communist leader in an effort to build a personal connection between the two men without sacrificing America’s vital interests in the Cold War. The 1985 Geneva summit was highly advertised as a potential showdown between Reagan and Gorbachev, the...

    So you want to play hardball, Mr Trump? Mexico is to consider revoking a series of treaties – including the 1848 agreement that transferred half its territory to the United States – if the Republican candidate wins the presidency and rips up the North American Free Trade Agreement, according to a Bill to be presented to Congress. The initiative, to be proposed on Tuesday by Armando Ríos Piter, a left-wing senator, follows last week’s much-criticised meeting between Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto and US presidential contender Donald Trump, which inflamed public opinion and sparked a cabinet rift. Mr Peña Nieto...

    Rather than fulfill her obligation of providing a message of good will, Mexico’s Secretary of Foreign Affairs H.E. Claudia Ruiz Massieu used her statement to inform the 109 states, 12 organizations, and 58 NGO’s in attendance that Mexico’s crime problems are the direct result of firearms illegally crossing their northern border. Seemingly taking her que from Barack Obama’s erroneous assertion that it is “easier for you to buy a handgun and clips than it is for you to buy a fresh vegetable,” Massieu boldly proclaimed that in America “it is easier to acquire a firearm than a liter of milk...

    Among Hillary’s most preposterous, unsustainable lies about her emails was that she deleted only personal emails referencing wedding plans and yoga classes. If there were a grain of truth to the notion of Hillary practicing yoga I’d argue she’d have been better advised to study jiu-jitsu, because her opponent, Donald Trump is a master of that art, turning her attacks on him against her. The prevailing fairytale spread by her camp is that he is the rough naïf in the thickets of oh-so-difficult to comprehend diplomacy while she is experienced on the world stage. Neither she nor her spokespersons when...

    A Mexican lawmaker is pushing legislation that would let Mexico's government retaliate against a possible Donald Trump presidency, Reuters reported Friday. The legislation is designed to counter any attempt from the U.S. government to make Mexico pay for a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, and gives the Mexican Senate power to disavow international treaties if Mexican national and business interests are threatened by another state. "In cases where the property/assets of [our] fellow citizens or companies are affected by a foreign government, as Donald Trump has threatened, the Mexican government should proportionally expropriate assets and properties of foreigners from that...

    Trump's Presidential Visit to Mexico Turkey Targets Kurds LIVE Saturday (9/3) 8 AM EST!!! Trump's visit to Mexico this week was a watershed moment in the presidential campaign season. In one daring move, Donald J. Trump proved that his rhetoric as a candidate is already producing desired diplomatic and policy effects. Moreover, it shows that Mexico considers a Trump presidency a very real possibility. Meanwhile, John Kerry suggests that the media should cease covering terrorism. Abroad, Obama's best pal - Turkey's Recep Erdogan - has once again stepped up the vicious targeting and ethnic cleansing of Kurds. This pits two...

    This should play on cable news... Did Trump Borrow His Immigration Speech From Bill Clinton? If you ask Hillary, Trump is a racist xenophobe for his stance on immigration. But take a look at this video from 1995 – Seems to be that Trump cribbed part of Bill Clinton’s SOTU address.
