Mexican Cartel Launches PR Campaign
Friends of Ours ^ | 08/15/13 | Friends of Ours

The Knights Templar is a cult-like drug cartel which controls much of the western state of Michoacan, and it has launched a public relations campaign to push out federal police and stamp out citizen patrols which challenge the powerful crime group as reported by Mark Stevenson for the Associated Press.

In a videotaped statement on social media Knights Templar leader Servando "La Tuta" Gomez railed against federal police, and an apparent front group for the drug cartel complained about citizen resistance.

La Tuta must be pulling a page from the playbook of mob boss Joe Colombo who created the Italian American Civil Rights League in a failed bid to recharacterize degenerate mobsters as legitimate businessmen after feeling some FBI heat. Of course, the unwanted attention which Colombo brought to the Mafia through the stunt resulted in his 1971 murder at a League rally by fellow mobsters.

The only politician stupid enough to fall for La Tuta's PR ploy would be U.S. Senator John McCain, and don't be surprised if the whacko bird now invites the cartel boss to testify in Washington on behalf of the so-called immigration reform bill.

The Basic Problem: Illegal aliens invade the USA for Welfare and Wages.

Solutions that address the Basic Problem:

1.) End the Anchor Baby Law.

2.) End the Hospital Emergency Room No Payment Law (EMTALA).

3.) End ANY other Welfare to Aliens.

4.) Fine US employers $1,000 per day per employee who is an alien.

5.) Spend NO money on “securing the border.” It is a bottomless money pit.

6.) Spend money on Chainlink/ Concertina wire desert prisons for the EXISTING Federal Law for a mandatory 6 month imprisonment for repeat offenders who have invaded our Country more than once.

7.) Transfer Border Invasion Enforcement to the US National Guard in each State, and thus under the control of the Governor of each State. The less Federal involvement, the better.

8.) Repeal all State and Federal Laws that prohibit voter officials and Police from requesting proof of US Citizenship for any reason what so ever.

9.) Be as hostile to all illegal alien invaders as we should be to all Federal politicians and Federal Judges who vote for or support another Ted Kennedy-style amnesty bill with no significant Federal enforcement.

Contact your local TEA Party, and plan to kick the sorry RINOs and even sorrier Democrats out of Congress in 2014!

Immigration is all about the money FReepers, YOUR tax money.

Ex-Border Patrol Agents Warn: Politicians Helping Cartels in U.S.
Breitbart News ^ | 7 Aug 2013 | Matthew Boyle / FR Posted by george76

In an open letter to the public in late July, several retired Border Patrol agents wrote on behalf of the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers to warn that Mexican drug cartels are actively operating inside the United States spending millions every year to try to build their networks here. They argued that American politicians are protecting their activities as well.

“Transnational criminal enterprises have annually invested millions of dollars to create and staff international drug and human smuggling networks inside the US; thus it is no surprise that they continue to accelerate their efforts to get trusted representatives in place as a means to guarantee continued success,” the Border Patrol agents wrote.

“We must never lose sight of the fact that the United States is the market place for the bulk of transnational criminal businesses engaged in human trafficking and the smuggling, distribution and sale of illegal drugs. Organized crime on this scale we are speaking about cannot exist without political protection.” ...

“Sanctuary cities established throughout the US discourage even the most basic law enforcement initiatives within their boundaries against these predatory criminals,” they wrote. “Encouraged by Congress and a disinterested mainstream news media, these havens deny the American public their constitutional right to national security and public safety while providing relative safety for dangerous foreign criminals.”

The retired Border Patrol agents called on Congress to abandon efforts to grant amnesty to illegal aliens because passing an amnesty would be akin to abetting the drug cartels.(Excerpt) Read more at ...

Vigilantism usually starts as a peaceful movement to get government to do its job and reduce crime. It follows a usual course of non-violent activities, such as petitions, protests, voting and unarmed citizen patrols. But often the government either ignores or thwarts such efforts because it is corrupt. Often because it is aligned with and supportive of the criminals.

Government quickly sees vigilantism as a threat, however, and tries to suppress it. If they are indeed aligned with the criminals, they may recruit them to attack the vigilantes, even sending police with the criminals to make the point.

Eventually it gets to be too much for the vigilantes, and so they form a mob. But even then the emphasis is just to drive out the criminals. But if the criminals or the government resists with violence, the vigilantes respond with violence and usually win.
