    Navy Recognition ^ | 17 August 2017
    On Thursday 17th August, the Secretary of the Mexican Navy, Admiral Vidal Francisco Soberón Sanz, took part in a symbolic coin ceremony at Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding (DSNS) at Vlissingen in the Netherlands. He was accompanied by the Secretary of National Defense, General Salvador Cienfuegos. The Coin Ceremony is an event which takes place at the keel laying, in the early stages of a ship's construction. In it, the shipbuilders place one or two coins under the keelblock of the new ship to bless the ship and as a symbol of good fortune. On this occasion, the vessel is a...

    Former Mexican President Vicente Fox took to Twitter to urge the U.S. State Department to “take away the atomic toy” from President Trump. Fox was responding to Trump's recent comments that he hasn’t ruled out military action in Venezuela and ongoing threats to retaliate against North Korea. “.@realDonaldTrump: before you turn the world to ashes, why don't you worry about your countrymen: health, growth, education. Leader of None!” Fox tweeted. “.@StateDept shut @realDonaldTrump's mouth & take away the atomic toy from his hand or you'll be equally responsible for destroying the world.” (TWEETS-AT-LINK) In remarks to reporters at his New...
  • L.A. County hands $1.3B — Billion! — to illegals for welfare

    llegals living in Los Angeles County were handed almost $1.3 billion in welfare payouts between the months of 2015 and 2016, Fox News reported, citing data. That’s billion with a capital “B.” That’s a quarter of what the county distributed to its entire needy population in those same months. Liberals and government elitists always like to make the case that citizens ought to support some cheap-sounding fee- or tax-paying cause by grandly pronouncing, “It’s just the cost of a cup of coffee,” or “If everyone just gave up their Starbucks lattes, it’d pay for itself.” Well, guess what $1.3 billion...

    Millions of gallons of toxic chemicals and raw sewage are being dumped by Mexico into the Tijuana River, surrounding valleys and U.S. beaches at the U.S.-Mexico border, sickening border patrol agents, but those on the front lines say the U.S. has done little to force Mexico to literally clean up its act. Some 59 Border Patrol agents have reported getting sick in the last three months after exposure to pollutants while at work along the border. One agent suffered severe chemical burns on his feet after toxic chemicals burned through his boots, according to documentation provided by the U.S. Border...

    Yesterday’s WaPo transcripts of Trump’s calls with the leaders of Mexico and Australia may be the best filter yet for separating garden-variety Trump critics from hardcore anti-Trump fanatics. Who thinks it’s a welcome development that the president can’t have a candid phone conversation with a fellow head of state anymore without having to worry that a minute-by-minute account will find its way into the newspapers? Not Democrat Ben Cardin: “I don’t think the transcripts should have been leaked,” Sen. Ben Cardin told CNN’s John Berman Friday on “New Day.” “We’ve had reports on both … the Australian call was well...
  • Mexican court forbids imports of US potatoes

    08/04/2017 8:53:58 PM PDT · by boycott · 33 replies ^ | August 04, 2017
    A Mexican federal court has made an unusual ruling that bans the import of U.S. potatoes on the grounds the imports violate Mexicans’ right to food sovereignty and a healthy environment. A group of Mexican potato growers had sought a constitutional injunction on the imports, claiming they threaten to spread agricultural diseases. The court said Mexican agricultural authorities had failed to use methods like radiation treatment of imports to prevent diseases. But because federal injunctions are intended only to protect constitutional rights, the ruling had to break some new ground. The court ruled the ban must be implemented to preserve...

    A bad leak in many ways. Confidentiality breeds candor, and you want the president to be candid when talking to foreign leaders. If he has to worry about his conversations leaking, he won’t be. Conceivably there’s a pressing national security concern that might override that concern — if, say, the worst suspicions of hardcore anti-Trumpers were true and he were colluding with the Kremlin to undermine American interests, you might justify leaking a transcript in that case. But there’s nothing like that in the WaPo piece. The most embarrassing part, it seems, is Trump asking the president of Mexico...

    OAN Newsroom The Trump administration is allowing customs officers to screen all cargo trucks coming into the U.S. in an effort to crack down on Mexican drug cartels. Under the Obama administration agents would only conduct random inspections allowing cartels to run their concealed loads through the border, but border security forces will now use technology to screen every cargo truck. According to the Department of Transportation about 471,000 trucks pass through the U.S.-Mexico border on a monthly basis. Officials say cartels often use other routes to transport drugs, but their preferred method is driving through a port of entry.

    SEATTLE – A 23-year-old DREAMer in Washington state is accused of brutally raping a 19-year-old woman in her apartment complex's gym and leaving her with severe facial injuries -- including a broken jaw and dangling ear. The woman ended up stumbling home with missing teeth, a bloody head and wearing only a black tank top, according to court documents obtained by Fox News. She was working out in the gym in Burien, a Seattle suburb, before the June 25 assault and did not know her attacker, police said. Salvador Diaz-Garcia, an illegal immigrant who is a recipient of Deferred Action...

    Two teens reportedly confessed to eating the flesh of their murder victims as part of an initiation into a rising Mexican drug cartel, the San Antonio Express-News reported Tuesday. The newspaper reported El País, an international publication, described the horrifying cannibalism by initiates into Jalisco New Generation cartel. According to El País, the 16- and 17-year-old told officials in Tabasco in southern Mexico the flesh-eating occurred after cartel members broke into a car dealership, decapitated five people, and left a signed note May 22. Four days later, another dismembered body was discovered west of Tabasco in Nacajuca, according to El...
  • How Mexico said no mas to Taco Bell: report

    The "wildly inauthentic" names for their dishes is just one of the reasons that restaurant chain, Taco Bell, can't seem to find purchase in Mexico. The first Taco Bells in Mexico closed down fewer than two years "and the chain retreated back across the border," according to the piece, which offers "a history of Taco Bell’s failed attempts to open locations in Mexico." A second foray was equally unsuccessful. The piece is an interesting look at what happens when a U.S. company tries to bring its Americanized versions of a cuisine to that food's homeland. "Today, the idea of a...

    Escorcia explains that coordinating tens of thousands of bots involves the hiring of dozens of operators — who program the accounts and relaunch discussion topics — at a high level of sophistication. In other words, these methods can’t be done by just anyone. “All the political parties use them, the PRI especially; The PAN with (Rafael) Moreno Valle, and I’ve even detected that Ricardo Monreal (from Morena) used them,” he says.

The government quickly removed the banners and fired a few low-ranking officials, while the federal highway department rushed to blame heavy rainfall, not shoddy construction, for the tragedy last week in which the men slowly asphyxiated at the bottom of the sinkhole over the span of an hour and a half...

    Florida truck driver James Matthew Bradley isn't the mastermind of the human smuggling ring that led to the grisly deaths of 10 illegal immigrants in his rig, which authorities found at a San Antonio Walmart over the weekend. He's just a cog in the machine. Bradley may now face the death penalty for transporting up to 100 people crammed in the trailer of his 18-wheeler. But what about the open-borders overlords making a real killing off this insatiable racket? I'm looking at you, America-bashing corruptocrats in Mexico. For years, our nation has been subjected to endless complaints, race-baiting insults and...

    A Mexican folk religion involving human sacrifice and devoted to "Holy Death" is growing in popularity among drug traffickers and violent criminals, prompting Texas officials and the Catholic Church to warn about honoring the so-called "Saint Death." Authorities are speaking out about the religion devoted to La Santa Muerte, which translates to “Holy Death” and "Saint Death," that has gained popularity steadily since the late 1980s among Mexican-American Catholics. “She’s not a saint. There is nothing good that can come out of praying to her,” Sante Fe Archbiship John Wester said in February. “We have a lot of saints who...
