  • Mexico OKs extradition of drug lord 'El Chapo' Guzman to US

    Mexico’s Foreign Relations Department ruled Friday that the extradition of convicted drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman to the United States can go forward. The process can still be appealed, meaning it could be weeks or months before the Sinaloa cartel leader may be sent to the U.S., where he is wanted in multiple jurisdictions on charges related to drug trafficking and organized crime. Guzman’s lawyers now have 30 days to appeal the decision, and they have said they will. …

    The Mexican government is warning of a strategy by drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman to try to loosen the security measures at the maximum-security prison where he has already escaped once. National security commissioner Renato Sales told reporters Monday that recent statements made by an alleged daughter of Guzman to The Guardian newspaper that the government had betrayed him suggest a media strategy. …

    When El Chapo was arrested (again) I didn’t pay all that much attention to the story. That’s not to say that it wasn’t important or that both Mexico and the DEA didn’t have a good reason to hunt him down, but it’s not the sort of thing that’s going to change the world in a substantive, positive way. When you take out a cartel kingpin like that there are plenty more ready and eager to take his place. Even if you could identify, locate and take out his entire army, all you’d manage to do would be to cause...

    Well I didn’t win the Powerball drawing last night. And apparently you didn’t either. With no winners in Saturday night's record $949.8 million Powerball jackpot, the next jackpot could reach an estimated $1.3 billion, lottery officials said early Sunday. What would you do if you won $1.3 billion? And since we’re playing make believe, let’s pretend that you don’t have to first give half your winnings to the IRS. I’d buy new appliances and spend the rest buying the 2016 American presidential election. At least I think $1.3 billion would be enough to Make America Great Again (MAGA).Alternatively, if it...

    Inside El Chapo’s secret Mexican prison escape tunnel (VIDEO) 7/27/15 | by Chris Eger Vice News traveled south of the border and dropped down the most famous underground tunnel in the world– that used by a Mexican drug lord to vacate the premises. The figurehead of the Sinaloa cartel, drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, released himself on his own recognizance on July 11, via a tunnel from Mexico’s only maximum-security prison in Mexico. It took him a year to arrange his self-parole and Vice went to Altiplano prison– where they found a different tale than what the local media...

    The Mexican government announced that 7 officials have been charged in aiding and abetting the escape of cartel leader Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman. The Mexican AG's office would not name the officials charged, but how surprised would you be if they didn't include any higher-ups? The director of the prison where El Chapo escaped has been fired, but no word if he was involved in the escape plot. Guzman's escape last Saturday from a maximum security prison through a mile-long tunnel built into his cell was a profound embarrassment for President Enrique Peńa Nieto, raising pressure on the government to...

    Mexican authorities searched frantically on Monday for the notorious drug kingpin known as "El Chapo" — but there was no sign of him more than 24 hours after his astonishing, elaborate escape from a maximum-security prison. In a devastating embarrassment for the Mexican government, the kingpin, Joaquin Guzman, slipped into a shaft through the shower floor of his prison cell and got away in a mile-long, ventilated tunnel outfitted with a motorbike. "This is like capturing Osama bin Laden, having him spend a year in prison, and then walking away from that prison only to re-engage in his terrorist activities,"...

    Donald Trump on Sunday blasted "corrupt Mexican officials" for letting a notorious drug kingpin escape from a maximum security prison. Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman escaped the prison by riding a motorcycle through a mile-long tunnel that was connected to the shower area of Guzman's cell. It is his second escape, and prison employees are being questioned. Trump noted that the last time Guzman escaped he was free for 13 years. "He has been selling drugs in the U.S. big-time – a major kingpin," he said in a statement sent to the media. "He is possibly in the U.S. and his...

    The guy has been locked up in Mexico for years. El Chapo is an escaped prisoner. What escaped prisoner on the run is MORE WORRIED about U.S. elections that are more than a year out... much less ever..., than disappearing off the radar? Attracting more attention would be counter to the counter to the escape plan. Furthermore, why would El Chapo announce it on social media which would attract A LOT of attention, and would attract even more people coming after him when he is still on the run? Something is not adding up here? Just saying..

So El Chapo gets out of jail, a mile long tunnel, one and a half kilometers, ventilated, built right under the Mexicans in their Mexico City jail, nobody knows how. The Drive-Bys are marveling, folks, over what an engineering feat it is, just like they used to marvel how Bill Clinton lied to them. The Drive-Bys are just stunned and impressed beyond all measure at how El Chapo built his escape tunnel. El Chapo, the biggest drug lord ever. Greetings, my friends, and great to have you here.

    Escaped Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman ordered his young wife, Emma Coronel, herself a U.S. citizen and daughter of another Mexican drug lord, to give birth in California to secure U.S. citizenship for his children. The Daily Mail reports that the feds didn’t thwart the Mexican drug cartel anchor baby scheme: “Federal agents wanted to stop her, but had no formal charges to file so had to let her go free.” Another immigration success story — despite the $5 million bounty placed on El Chapo’s head in Mexico, Coronel gave birth to twin daughters on August 15, 2012....

Internal DEA documents obtained by The Associated Press reveal that drug agents first got information on escape plans in March 2014. That was about a month after Guzman was captured in Mazatlan, Mexico.

    Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman who has a $7.5 Million bounty on his head and runs the Sinaloa cartel reportedly has a U.S. driver’s license issued in California. According to the investigative report, “The Hunt for El Chapo Guzman, Mexico’s Most Elusive Drug Lord,” by the Univision network, Guzman obtained a driver’s license under the alias of Max Aragon in 1988. He obtained the license even though he was a wanted man by the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and a Mexican national. The driver’s license information is part of a confidential file the DEA keeps on El Chapo. The year-long investigative...
