    The New York Times ^ | 07 March 2021 | Kirk Semple and Oscar Lopez
    A bill that the Mexican president is expected to approve soon would curtail private investors in the energy industry and possibly reverse gains in lowering carbon emissions. President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has never been short of criticisms about his predecessor’s legacy. But he has reserved a special contempt for the sweeping overhaul that opened Mexico’s tightly held energy industry to the private sector.He has called the changes a form of legalized “pillaging,” the product of corruption and a resounding failure. He has suggested that some foreign energy investors are “looting” the nation and that Mexican lawyers who work for...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) called for a “prompt” House ethics investigation into Rep. Tony Cárdenas (D-Calif.) on Saturday, following reports of allegations that he sexually abused a 16-year-old girl in 2006. Cárdenas has vehemently denied the allegations through his attorney. “I have spoken with Congressman Cárdenas and he appropriately asked us to withhold judgment until there is a full investigation of the facts,” Pelosi said in a statement. “As Members of Congress, we each have a responsibility to uphold the integrity of the House of Representatives, and any type of alleged misconduct must be investigated by the Ethics...

    For anyone going to the upcoming Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), I’m sure by now you’re aware that there will be no panels conducted regarding the threat of Islam this year.  All of our leading experts on Islam–Robert Spencer, Pamela Geller, Frank Gaffney and others–have been banned from speaking and/or holding panels.Unfortunately, many Conservatives still aren’t aware that two of the most influential organizers of CPAC—seemingly innocuous tax guru Grover Norquist and former aide in the Bush administration Suhail Khan—are fighting together to eliminate any dissenting voices about the influence of the Muslim Brotherhood in America.  Why is this?Last year, I...

    American Conservative Union Chairman Al Cardenas said he supported a bipartisan Senate effort at immigration reform, stressing that the proposal must include a way for an estimated 11 million illegal aliens to “come out of the shadows” and be given “a legal status where they can be secure in this country for their future and that of their children.” Cardenas made his remarks on the Spanish-language Telemundo show Enfoque on Sunday, noting that immigration is an issue he plans to stress at the upcoming Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington, D.C., which opens next week. … When asked what...

    Popular radio show host Sean Casey (The Morning Show with Sean and Frank) had CPAC chief Al Cardenas on his show today, and Sean asked Cardenas about my banning at CPAC (a story that has gone viral). If you recall, Al Cardenas told the Washington Post last week: "...this year we decided not to invite Pamela Geller for comments she made at CPAC critical of our officers [ Grover Norquist]. In each of these cases, their ad hominem attacks denigrate the debate and distract from the real point of CPAC....." But in his response to Sean Casey this morning, he...

    "We at the American Conservative Union insist on civility from all of our guests" Al Cardenas, the head of the Conservative Union (whch puts on CPAC) What absolute hogwash. Who decides what is "civility"? Is exposing the truth uncivil? Is the first amendment uncivil? Is free speech uncivil? Is speaking one's mind uncivil? Is violating the blasphemy laws uncivil? According to Al Cardenas it is. How have I been "uncivil"? Al Cardenas's intellectual dishonesty is breathtaking. First off, I have never been invited to speak at CPAC, ever. His contention that it was only after I exposed Grover Norquist and...

    David Keene, the longtime chairman of the American Conservative Union, stepped down on Wednesday as the leader of the organization, one day ahead of the first of its annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). Keene had chaired the organization since 1984 and will still preside over the annual conservative gathering. His impending exit had been anticipated, but not the timing. Al Cardenas was selected to succeed Keene. Cardenas was born in Cuba in 1948, and has been a player in conservative politics since the Reagan presidency. “I look forward to taking advantage of the new energies we see today in...

    Al Cardenas is one of Miami's top political insiders. He's a former two-term chair of the state GOP, and a former member of the nation-wide Executive Committee of the Republican Party. The guy even gave Marco Rubio his first break in politics. The Cuban-American has just been named the president of the influential American Conservative Union, and while he's about as Republican as they come, some insiders are gasping that he may not be conservative enough. Cardenas, now a prominent Miami lawyer and lobbyist who previously served as the group's treasurer, will be the ACU's first new president in more...

    Former Mexican drug lord Osiel Cardenas Guillen is out of hiding for the first time in nearly four years, having reported to a U.S. medium-security prison to serve a comparatively comfortable sentence negotiated by his attorneys. Unlike some other major drug cartel figures, Cardenas avoided the harshness of the tomb-like Supermax in Colorado, where inmates are locked in cells and rarely see the sun. Instead, records posted Wednesday show he is checked in at the United States Penitentiary, Atlanta, where he can walk the razor-wire-surrounded facility to go to meals, the library or recreation time. Up until now, he had...

    Last Thursday at around noon, a 24-year-old Houston man identified as Fausto Cardenas was arrested by Texas State Troopers for firing a gun outside the Texas Capitol. The suspect was also seen inside trying to gain access to District 7 (Houston) State Senator Dan Patrick’s office a few minutes earlier. Senator Patrick’s office aide said Cardenas was acting strangely and denied him access. For over a year, Senator Dan Patrick has been advocating for the Texas National Guard to be placed on the border with Mexico to fight the drug cartels and illegal immigration.

    HIDALGO — The U.S. Border Patrol turned over a fugitive believed to have ties to a powerful Mexican paramilitary group to agents in that country Thursday, federal authorities said. Miguel Angel Hernandez Barrón was wanted for deserting the army and separate gun charges, said Reynosa-based Judge Ayala Santos, with the Instituto Nacional de Migración, a federal immigration court. Hernandez Barrón is believed to be the brother of Victor Manuel Hernandez Barrón, a top member of the Zetas and the purported personal bodyguard of alleged Gulf Cartel leader Osiel Cárdenas, authorities said.

    FBI bulletin outlines possible terrorist plot at Texas border BY ALFREDO CORCHADO AND JASON TRAHAN The Dallas Morning News DALLAS - (KRT) - Dirt roads trace pale lines across a desolate landscape of bald peaks and plunging canyons near Texas' Big Bend and bridge the international boundary at dozens of improvised crossings. For decades, these routes have been used to smuggle drugs and humans. Now there is growing concern they could become deadly conduits for terrorism. The concern is buttressed by a confidential but unclassified FBI intelligence bulletin, obtained by The Dallas Morning News, that contains the vague outlines of...
