    A militant wearing the insignia of Mexico’s notorious Gulf Cartel (Cartel Del Golfo, CDG) was filmed in the state of Tamaulipas carrying a US-made anti-tank missile launcher. Milenio TV identified the weapon as a Javelin, thousands of which were sent to Ukraine by the Pentagon. Footage filmed in Matamoros on Monday and aired on Tuesday evening by the news channel Milenio TV showed a man with CDG patches armed with a Kalashnikov rifle and a missile they said was the Raytheon-made FGM-148. Over 10,000 Javelins from Pentagon stockpiles have been sent to Ukraine since last February, to the point where...

    American Thinker ^ | 05/24/2023 | Silvio Canto Jr.
    President Andres Lopez-Obrador of Mexico has finally met someone that he can't fool anymore. For the last years, the man nicknamed AMLO has pretended to be the leader of the Third World, the representative of everyone with a grievance, and the one who makes things happen. (A lot of Mexicans would say that he is making things a lot worse, but that's for another post.) A few months ago, President Lopez-Obrador stepped on it big time. He got involved in Peru's politics, a sin by Mexican standards. After all, hasn't Mexico always preached the idea that your business is your...

    Historically, Spain has a massive influence on Mexico: the language, the culture, the religion, and the demographics. It’s obvious. But did you know it’s not all a one-way street? Contemporary Spain has also been influenced by Mexico. The language is a big part of it, but it’s more than that. It’s the general cultural ambiance. We got the impression that Spaniards liked Mexicans. They might be afraid to go to Mexico, given the violence, which is understandable, but they don’t have anything against Mexicans. Several of them did, however, have some critical things to say about the current Mexican government...
  • Millions are told to get ready to evacuate as one of the world's most dangerous volcanoes in Mexico is set to erupt with smoke, ash and molten rock already spewing into the sky grounding planes forcing nearby schools to close

    Mexican authorities on Sunday raised the warning level for the Popocatepetl volcano to one step below red alert as smoke, ash and molten rock spewed into the sky posing risks to aviation and far-flung communities below. The huge volcano that towers above Mexico City is considered one of the most dangerous in the world because some 25 million people live within a 60-mile radius. Sunday's increased alert level - to 'yellow phase three' - comes a day after two Mexico City airports temporarily halted operations due to falling ash, which also forced 11 villages to cancel school sessions.

    An international team of biologists, geneticists, anthropologists and biochemists has... generated genomic and mitochondrial DNA data to test theories surrounding the migration of ancient peoples in Mexico...Prior research, based mostly on archaeological evidence, has suggested that drought-driven migration of ancient people from Mexico's north to the south occurred many times in the years before Europeans arrived. The northern region, called Aridoamerica, was dry and mostly desert. The people living there at the time survived as hunter-gatherers. Farther south was Mesoamerica, where early people survived by farming.Prior research has shown that there were several long-term droughts in Aridoamerica, leading people to...

    The family of a US tourist who died in Mexico last year under suspicious cricumstances are demanding President Biden and the State Department intervene in the death investigation. Shanquella Robinson died while vacationing with friends in San Jose del Cabo in Mexico in October 2022. Shortly afterward videos emerged of her being viciously beaten by other members of her party. However, the FBI have declined to bring any charges in the case. “We were hopeful that once the FBI got engaged, that they would respect this American citizen, this young black woman who, based on the video, did absolutely nothing...

    Seven inmates were hospitalized on Wednesday night after experiencing what officials described as "a medical emergency" while incarcerated at a jail in northwestern Washington. Authorities believe the inmates may have suffered from fentanyl overdoses, the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office office said. The sheriff's office, which is leading a criminal investigation into the incident, confirmed Thursday that all of the inmates who were hospitalized had since been discharged and returned to the Snohomish County Jail. The office said earlier that detectives believed an inmate brought fentanyl into the jail and had identified a possible suspect. By Thursday morning, authorities had referred...

    Advanced money-laundering techniques and clandestine precursor imports combine to stoke the opioid crisis – can the US stem the flow? For a few days in April, news sites across Latin America were running Instagram photos of a glamorous blond woman enjoying trips around the world. There were pictures of Ana Gabriela Rubio Zea, 32, posing in a blue dress and Yves Saint Laurent handbag outside San Miguel de Allende, ice skating in a miniskirt in Central Park and laughing in the Forbidden City. The social media images were then followed by more recent photos: Rubio, in a sweatshirt and jeans,...

    A historic 17th century Catholic church was damaged in an arson attack Monday in central Mexico, the latest in an alarming rise in violence targeting churches and pro-life organizations across the world. ACI Prensa reports the Diocese of Irapuato in Guanajuato, Mexico said the fire was set deliberately at Santiaguito (St. James) Church sometime between 1:04 a.m. and 1:26 a.m., and the suspect is male. “The diocesan Church of Irapuato vigorously condemns this sacrilege, and we ask the corresponding authorities to find those responsible,” Father Efrén Silva Plascencia, spokesman for the diocese, said in a statement.

  • Roxana Ruiz, Who Strangled Her Rapist, Sentenced to 6 Years in Prison, Activists Slam Decision

    A young Mexican mom who strangled a man with a T-shirt after he raped her has been convicted in his killing and sentenced to more than six years in prison — in a case that sparked protests and backlash in the country. The Mexico State Court found Monday that while Roxana Ruiz had been raped, she was guilty of homicide with “excessive use of legitimate defense,” adding that hitting her attacker in the head would have been enough to defend herself. Ruiz’s lawyers swiftly slammed the ruling as “discriminatory” and vowed to appeal, arguing that it sets a bad precedent...

    A woman who killed a man in self-defense after he attacked and raped her in 2021 was sentenced to more than six years in prison Tuesday.

    Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said on Sunday that U.S. Border Patrol encounters have dropped by half in the two days since Title 42 expired. Around 6,300 encounters took place on Friday and 4,200 happened Saturday — a marked decrease from the over 10,000 reported before the end of Title 42, Mayorkas said during an interview on CNN. Pressed on why the numbers have fallen, Mayorkas credited a “vitally important message” encouraging people arriving at the border to take legal pathways toward entry, which he said has been expanded by President Joe Biden in “an unprecedented way.” Mayorkas also touted...

    The most circulated newspaper in Europe killed a major corruption story to please Joe Biden. A new report details how editors at Bild, the outlet in question, canned an extensive investigative piece on Albanian PM Edi Rama because he and the US president are friends and political allies.Per The Washington Examiner, Albania has become a narco-state over the last decade under Rama, and Bild was getting ready to expose him further.So, who is Rama? He’s the far-left leader of Albania’s Socialist Party. Accusations against him range from drug trafficking to money laundering, to extortion and vote buying.A few days ago,...
