An incredibly brave woman who should be considered a hero both in Mexico and the U.S. It's time to use our drones on the drug cartels!

We have far more national security interest in Mexico than over there in Afghanistan.
Right now our troops must make sure not to damage the opium poppy crop. We need to hit this.

Average Mexicans are terrified of the cartel wars. If we did with the slightest PR effort, we should be able do it without making them freak out that we are taking over. It could easily be cast as a rescue mission for them and as security for both of us.

From the article:

But after decades of using force to combat the gangs, it is U.S. lawmakers who are the criminals' biggest problem.

Legalisation of marijuana, as recently voted for by Colorado and Washington states, may wipe billions of dollars from the cartels’ annual profits.

And it has left politicians in Mexico with a tough question: How can they continue to justify spending money – and lives – fighting drug distribution to America when it will be legal in some states from next month?

Mexico presidential advisor Luis Videgaray said in a radio interview last week: 'Obviously, we can’t handle a product that is illegal in Mexico, trying to stop its transfer to the United States, when in the United States, at least in part of the United States, it now has a different status.'

She stood up to the drug world, but the drug world will hijack this thread.

Meanwhile our administration and our politicians want amnesty for the illegals and want our country to look like Mexico.

They care only for their own power and jobs.

F’em.

Legalization is not the answer.

This is a good post regarding that from StevenCrowder:

Every now and then a saint walks among us.

I hope the Church considers her for sainthood

Incredibly, even people HERE do not get it. Ask yourself a question: How many times has GayMuzzie given off signs of LIKING free markets...? Never, right? Leftists in general and GayMuzzie in particular find them confusing, and difficult to TAX.

Much better for the lefty antiMarketist is a cartel, or a MONOPOLY.

Why are people forgetting that GayMuzzie struck a secret bargain with the SINALOA CARTEL...? He is PARTNERS with them, the same spooky way he appears partners with the type of people responsible for Bengazi; Barry is verrrrry much for ENGAGEMENT, mostly in ways have that not yet come fuly to light.

Anti-drug war people talk and talk about how drug illegality provides high profits for criminals, but since the biggest criminal is GayMuzzie, how likely is it that he’d legalize it, and provide for market entry for allll kinds of competitors on HIS PRODUCT sold to HIS consumer base?

GayMuzzie does not like markets cuz theCOMy’r confusing to him (and to all lefties) and because taxing a designated monopolist would be much more lucrative for him.

NO MARKET AND NO COMPETITORS.

Where there is smoke, there is Choom Gang, and this is GayMuzzie’s handiwork.
