Three San Jose residents charged Monday in one of the largest methamphetamine busts in U.S. history are tied to a Mexican drug trafficking organization, said officials from the Drug Enforcement Administration.

Defendants, Alberto Rodriguez, Carlos Aguilar, and Liliana Lopez, appeared in Santa Clara County Superior Court for the first time Monday as a judge set bail at $2 million each.

Big bust with Mexican ties? I’d be more surprised if there weren’t these ties.

Rush calls some nitwit a name. These foreign invaders bring 750 pounds of toxic poison into our country. Guess what makes news.

Yearly about 30 tons of meth is confiscated by cops worldwide. Last year in Mexico they had ONE SINGLE BUST that yielded 16 T-O-N-S.

This means that China and Drugsxico are national allies on the effort to get the USA hooked on this stuff; ocean-liners bursting with the raw inputs come over to Mexico, where the narcos cook the stuff up.

Our role is just to shell out to BUY the poison —that’s our role.

The narcos in Mexico have their own secret roads to get the inputs inland from the shore, and they even have their own RADIO system —I mean repeaters, and all that, a whole covert network.

This is another form of warfare on us by China, more or less.

Meanwhile, we have to show ID to buy OTC cold medication.

A Mexican connection? You're joking!

How on Earth could a city that has a $500,000 statue of Quetzalcoatl that looks like a pile of poop in its Plaza de Cesar E. Chavez possibly have a Mexican connection?

Are these folks illegal?

Just because they are unlicensed pharmacists, what makes you think they are illegal? They have such California sounding names...

Does “Quetzalcoatl” mean “cow-paddy” in Espanol?

Chasing all those meth labs out of the states did have some unintended consequences huh.

Who fed that poor llama some meth? And how did that inspire it to parasail?
