Cops seize 6 pounds of meth
KTVL Medford, Or ^ | July 20, 2012 | Ktvl

MEDFORD, Ore. -- Law enforcement officials have taken more than 6 pounds of methamphetamine off the streets.

On July 13, agents from the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations contacted Miguel Angel Rebolledo-Aviles, 23, on a commercial bus line that was passing through Medford.

They found one unclaimed bag that had 6.6 pounds of methamphetamine, according to a press release from the Medford Area Drug and Gang Enforcement.

Federal law enforcement officials asked MADGE officers to help in the investigation.

Once the investigation was complete, police arrested the suspect on the suspicion of unlawful distribution of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of a controlled substance.

Police say the meth is valued at $110,000 if it was purchased by the pound. If the drugs were purchased in user quantities, then it would be worth $300,000.

Just yesterday some O administration talking head insisted that the border towns are ‘safe’ from Mexico’s nasty little war and criminals. I doubt it, because no town in this country is escaping it!

800 miles from the border and we are infested with ‘latino’ gangs. Every day it’s a stabbing, driveby shooting, rape and the grafitti! Medford has a new tax funded bureaucracy with fancy vehicles to try to remove it! Coming to your hometown...WAKE UP!

Police say fight, stabbing were gang related
July 20, 2012

MEDFORD, Ore. — Medford Police have arrested three people for their roles in a gang-related fight and stabbing.

Police started looking for the suspects after responding to a fight at Plum and Prune streets on July 7, according to a press release from the Medford Police Department.

When police arrived, they found a 27-year-old man with a stab wound to his torso.

The early investigation revealed that the fight involved several Norteno gang members, who were at a party nearby.

They made one arrest the night of the fight and cited several minors for minor in possession of alcohol.

On July 17, police arrested a 16-year-old boy for assault in the second degree and riot. Police believe the teen in the stabber.

On July 19, police arrested Helen Ortega-Arechiga, 18, and Rubiselda Quintero, 27, for riot and assault. Police say the charges stem from their involvement in the July 7 fight.

Police say they are continuing their investigation.

“buhloney. they seized 50 pounds. they turned in 6.”

More than likely. This sheriff has turned a blind eye to all of this gang activity. Someone is getting paid off.

Let’s Not Discuss Immigration Reform

This is a great piece by our friend JackelopeBreeder who lives on the border and lives the nightmare of the invasion every day.

The current usage of the phrase “immigation reform” easily qualifies as one of the most savagely twisted examples of semantics in current politics. Absolutely none of the proposals I have read to date has anything to do with immigration.

Nowhere in all the rhetoric and sophomoric sound bites is there a single reference to that forgotten group – legal immigrants. Remember them? They’re the honest people who are trying to reach this country using the legally prescribed channels. They spend thousands of dollars in fees, submit reams of paperwork, undergo thorough background and health checks – and wait for years while the bureaucracy shambles along and randomly loses key documents. It’s a miracle we have any legal immigration at all.

Has anyone reading this screed seen any proposals to fix legal immigration? If so, I really want to hear about it. Our government can’t even begin to handle the 500,000 still legally waiting offshore at any one moment in a timely fashion. Our politicians must be living in a drug-addled alternate reality if they think the government can even begin to handle the 10 to 12 million illegal aliens estimated to be working here. Toss in their families and we could easily be talking about 30 million “guests”.

First, stop and think of the sheer size of the bureaucracy needed to administer a guest worker program of that magnitude. You would needs tens of thousands of new government workers: clerks, investigators, adjudicators, etc. One of the first things to happen would be diversion of a very large chunk of the legal immigration workforce at Citizenship and Immigration Services to handle the illegal alien hordes. Legal immigration would slow to a virtual halt; is that fair to those who have been trying to get here legally? Does this constitute “immigration reform”?

It is about amnesty, even if few of our politicians have the spine to admit it. Most politicians would have to put on a double pair of Depends undergarments before uttering the word. Unfortunately, amnesty is a constant aspect of the game on our southern border.

When an illegal alien is caught crossing the first time, it’s a misdemeanor. If they’re Mexican, they are offered voluntary deportation in lieu of charges – a form of amnesty – and returned home. The Border Patrol sees a lot of repeat clientele; under Federal law, each repeat offense is a felony. Still, they are “amnestied” back across the border, sometimes dozens of times. Do we let all the felony counts slide?

Let’s look at the colorful life of an illegal alien and the list of legal issues that make their existence here possible: document fraud, forgery, identity fraud, identity theft, working illegally, tax evasion, tax fraud, fraudulent use of government benefits, etcetera ad nauseum and most are considered felonies. Do we amnesty all of these activities as well?

If an American citizen gets caught at any of these pursuits they end up as a Guest Worker – as a Guest of the State – and amnesties are few and far between for them.

The government owes the rest of us the assurance that any guest worker meets the same background checks as anyone trying to legally immigrate. They at least owe us something better than the existing system that renewed several 9/11 hijackers’ visas six months after they died whacking the World Trade Center and killing a few thousand people.

Most illegal aliens have totally inadequate personal documentation. Many have fraudulent documentation, often in a variety of names. We really don’t know who they are and have little chance of adequately checking their backgrounds in their home countries or here. And remember, their home country really doesn’t want them back, especially if they have a troublesome past.

From a taxpayer viewpoint, just looking at the size of the required bureaucracy for screening illegal aliens to become guest workers, all the cheapness in cheap labor went right out the window. Tax collections go up to pay for it, or tax revenues are diverted away from programs for American citizens.

Now let’s look at the side of “immigration reform” that our leaders constantly promise, but haven’t delivered since the days of Dwight Eisenhower: enforcement. Every “immigration reform” measure since that time consisted of an amnesty and a promise of future enforcement. We certainly got the amnesties, but apparently the future that contains the enforcement has not arrived yet.

So, if it ain’t “immigration reform”, just what is all this bizarre yammering from the District of Corruption?

Well, part of it is economic reform for Mexico. Until recently, their oil revenues were at Number One on the official revenue list. Mexico’s oil revenues for 2004 amounted to $24 billion; remittances from its erstwhile citizens here in El Norte almost matched that. Add in the $8 billion generated by trafficking in aliens and oil comes in second. (Those who dabble in diplomacy advise me not to mention this, but aliens and oil are at a very distant second and third place disadvantage when compared to Mexico’s illicit narcotics revenues. Mentioning this rude fact in polite company is the same level of social and diplomatic faux pas as openly remarking on the Queen of England’s buns.)

Another part is political reform, again for the advantage of Mexico. The best one can say for Mexico’s government is that it has been totally ineffectual since its independence from Spain. Then again, it was worse before that. Now, however, they have the advantage of being able to ship the discontented, the indigent and uneducated off to El Norte, thus delaying any serious reforms in that benighted country – and our government lets them.

The last part is labor reform pure and simple, but this time on behalf of certain industries in the United States that have become addicted to cheap labor. The more cunning amongst this crowd do not want to see any reforms whatsoever. Why?

Hector, the legal guest worker would have the same protections as an American employee: prevailing wages, Workers Compensation, Social Security, and all those other expenses the employer is trying to avoid. Remember, it’s all about privatizing profits and socializing costs. If Hector costs as much as a gringo, then he’s no longer cheap labor. But hey, there’s always Carlos, the next illegal alien over the fence, to replace him in the under-the-table wage group. Besides, if our previous history of non-enforcement is any indication, our unscrupulous employers can expect a visit from unicorns long before they see a visit from Immigrations and Customs Enforcement.

Do you want a peek at the real dirty little secret of “immigration reform”? Just look closely at the AgJobs bill championed by Congressman Chris Cannon of Utah. Hidden away in the details (and truly the Devil is in the details) is language giving amnesty and official forgiveness to any employer who ever transgressed against hiring illegal aliens. I’m willing to bet the entire bankroll that similar language gets weaseled into any new version of “immigration reform”.

So, if this really isn’t immigration reform, let’s not waste legislative time discussing it. Let’s talk about enforcement instead. Once the government proves the long term ability and will for real enforcement – from the border to the boardroom – maybe we can take another look at some sort of guest worker program in a few years. We’ve seen enough amnesties; now it’s enforcement’s turn. We don’t need new laws for enforcement; we have plenty that have just never been used. We just need the resources to make the system work – and an absence of political interference.

A parting shot at the Cheap Labor Lobby: It’s almost Halloween; a lot of us would like to see some of you wearing orange in honor of the occasion.

Meth used to be very much a locally produced, at best regionally trafficked drug. With the lockdown on precursors in the states the cartels have gotten involved in the trade with even some cross border smuggling of precursors.

This is just part of a trend where domestic interstate drug trafficking is being taken over by the Mexican cartels.

It used to be drug traffickers got prosecuted and illegals got a voluntary return. With this Administration traffickers get a voluntary return (no criminal prosecution) and illegals get a work permit.

Meth dealers and makers should be executed with dull axes in the town square, and left for dogs to eat. The military should call in airstrikes on meth houses. Mexico should be put on a 24 hour notice of being nuked if it doesn’t shut down the meth ingredient pipeline, and invaded, enslaved, burned and have it’s farms salted if it refuses.

I hope that was clear.

Meth is satanic.

FEDERALES SALIVATING AT THE THOUGHT OF US TAX DOLLARS FLOODING MEXICO With visions of US tax dollar dancing in his head, the newly-elected Mexico president was asked by US reporters if the US was responsible for rampant Mexican drug violence. "Yes," el presidente said, "b/c Americanos are the major consumers of Mexican drugs."

Course the mental midget thinks we don't know he's salivating at the thoughts of billions of US tax dollars----and the bozo cannot comprehend if Mexico did not finance its drug cartels over the border---there would not be an American drug problem.


REFERENCE The US govt is cooperating with Mexico.

YOUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK: Our nation'$ billion dollar Merida Initiative to blanket Mexico with tax dollars----and Eric Holder'$ Fast and Furious----we have successfully armed some of the most savage Mexican drug cartel gangs with the finest in automatic weapons........

REFERENCE: The Mérida Initiative (also called Plan Mexico by critics) is a so-called "security cooperation agreement" between the United States and the government of Mexico and the countries of Central America, with the declared aim of combating the threats of drug trafficking, transnational organized crime and money laundering. The assistance includes training, equipment and intelligence.

In seeking partnership with the United States, Mexican officials point out that the illicit drug trade is a shared problem in need of a shared solution, and remark that most of the financing for the Mexican traffickers comes from American drug consumers. U.S. law enforcement officials estimate that US$12 to 15 billion per year flows from the United States to the Mexican traffickers, and that is just in cash, i.e., not including the money sent by wire transfers.

The U.S. Congress passed legislation in late June 2008 to provide Mexico with $400 million and Central American countries with $65 million that year for the Mérida Initiative. The initiative was announced on 22 October 2007 and signed into law on June 30, 2008.

*** The Mérida Initiative ... The assistance includes training, equipment and intelligence. ***

And some of that 'equipment' is Military Grade Small Arms -- from Rocket Launchers to ..... Fully Automatic M16 and M4 Assault Rifles. Which 'oddly enough' are winding up in the hands of the Drug Cartels.

Now most would think from that happening, that the Mexican Government and/or Mexican Army just may be 'a tad' corrupt. But oh no, not our geniuses at the State Dept, starting with Hitlery Klintoon. They don't see a connection anywhere in that 'odd' occurrence. Nor does Eric 'My People' Holder, nope. Nothing to see there, move along now.
