A chilling message from the cartels: Billboards with hanging mannequins warning...
Daily Mail ^

Posted on 05/24/2014 1:18:49 AM PDT by kelly4c

Two billboards along highways in El Paso, Texas were vandalized and had mannequins hanging off of them

One reads 'silver or lead' in Spanish which is taken to mean that police and business owners can either take drug cartels' bribes or die

Worries spreading that cartels that have ruled Mexican border towns with violence may be headed north

This is what our wonderful elected rats have allowed to come to pass. And they want to legalize people like this! God help us.

This ominous display in Texas, plus the growing knowledge that Obama unleashed over 36K illegal criminals on our street just may serve as the tipping point of events, to stop the U.S. from going full bore into amnesty at this time. This probably greatly displeases Obama and Boehner. Now there will be full attention focused on border issues. At least for the next few weeks.

This is the result of all the Amnesty talk in Washington! An exact examples of what happens when law and order breaks down at the border (and in the states) and guess who is responsible for it? The kids are racing across the border as fast as they can to get immunity and citizenship when the laws are changed (or more honestly, ignored by our President and the other agencies (at his orders). We are lost. When we have the Business folks pushing for this along with the Government, what chance do we have? Both Democrats and Republicans are both pushing for essentially nullification of current laws.

Law and order has been redefined!

When the officers attempted to subdue him, Bechard became “combative and assaulted the officers,”

He’s still alive? Surprising. When anyone gets “combative” or especially assaults a cop these days they have a big risk of being shot! Kudos to these cops for actually handing a situation responsibly.

I hope you’re right. I know we already have the cartel operating here but our gov’t is going to open the floodgates if they follow through as planned and if so i hope their grandchildren curse them in their graves. It’s not much consolation is it?

Emboldening law-breakers and criminals, both dems and Repubs are doing it and it’s outright treason. If ever we needed a good independent 3rd party candidate it is now. Problem is, there are too many low information voters, money-hungry CEO’s and ignorant misguided liberals among our ranks so they wouldn’t stand a chance anyhow. Whatcha gonna do? We seem to be the minority. If we were the majority there’s no way the administration would have gotten this far.

They thought he was gay, so special privilege was invoked.

Alternate billboard wording: New Democrat Voters - silver or lead. (Take the silver of entitlement handouts or get the lead of being conservative haters.)

Legalize cartels. Legalize hanging mannequins. Amnesty for all. That’s the solution. Libertarians of the world, unite!

It isn't just the dems. George 2 was AWFUL for allowing the invasion of the US. Republicans who lust for the cheap labor for their corporate sponsors keep talking about "reforming the immigration system" instead of EVerify, sending home invaders, and jailing and fining those who hire them and otherwise give them support.

The invasion would have been ended by now if RINOs had supported its end. In fact, with an excellent message of job opportunity for US citizens, dems would support the end of the invasion of the US.

I put the blame for this mess on Republicans who don't actually side with us on this, the most imperative issue that's destroying the US.

If you want to know why Hispanics are AGAINST open borders...and they are, despite what the media keeps telling the idiot Republicans, it’s because of this mob.

Unfortunately, from what I can tell, Hispanics are for Amnesty too...so if you got here and live here, they don’t want you deported. But if you over there, STAY THERE.

Nice to have them halfway on our side, at least. That’s better than Cantor and the rest of that bunch.

Cartel violence in Texas is old news. A few years ago, the Zetas engaged in a shootout with undercover Harris County deputies and fedral agents.

http://www.chron.com/news/houston-texas/article/Zeta-soldiers-launched-Mexico-style-attack-in-2283370.php

It was in the local news for a day or two, and no mention of after that.

This can’t be. El Paso is one of the safest cities in the country, according to the dimwit Joe Garcia.

Here’s a novel idea. Take some of those predator drones and bring them back from Pakistan and start putting a few Hellfire missiles up the cartel’s azz. What’s Mexico going to do about it? Hold a lost marine hostage?

So the narrative on this is only about immigration? Figures. Of course it has nothing to do with the narrative that legalizing drugs would “quell crime & do away with cartel incentives”.
I was told on FR for the past 2 years that legalizing drugs would make the world safer & bring down crime in the US.
No one would listen to me about the cartel violence already happening here. That’s okay though, because this is only a result of bad immigration policy, right guys? Wink wink.

Thank goodness they put a dummy in the noose. We all know a noose by itself is racist. And who is the idiot tgat actually cooked up the theory that it is people protesting the war on drugs?

This does not play well in Texas. Texas is not California and threats against civilians and police are probably not what you want to do.

Sheesh, what drama queens.
